PA-Sen: Club for Growth PAC Endorses Pat Toomey for Re-Election
In an announcement this week, the Club for Growth PAC endorsed freshman Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey for a second term.
In addition, the group also endorsed five other GOP Senators: Ron Johnson (Wisconsin), Mike Lee (Utah), Rand Paul (Kentucky), Marco Rubio (Florida), and Tim Scott (South Carolina).
The endorsement comes only one day after Politico called the race for Senate in Pennsylvania was one of the races to watch.
“The pro-growth class of 2010 has done excellent work in the United States Senate”, said Chris Chocola, President of Club for Growth. “Our members want to make sure they stay there for another six years. The Club for Growth PAC is ready to stand by these members of Congress – all of whom have a consistent record of voting for pro-growth policies. Americans deserve to have representatives who stand on principle and fight for economic freedom, and the mission of the Club for Growth PAC is to elect them to Congress, regardless of their party affiliation.”
This is not the first time the six candidates have been endorsed by the Club for Growth PAC. All were endorsed by the group in their previous election cycles as well.
It also couldn’t have hurt that Toomey was President of the Club for Growth from 2005 to 2009.
After the endorsement was announced, the group said their PAC will immediately begin bundling contributions from Club members directly to campaign accounts.
