National Club for Growth no fan of Tommy
Chris Chocola, President of the national organization of Club for Growth, expresses his opposition to former Governor Tommy Thompson running for Senate:
“Tommy Thompson raised taxes as governor, supported ObamaCare, and now he wants to run for the United States Senate?” Chris Chocola, president of the influential anti-spending group, said in an email blast to supporters.
“April Fools was weeks ago. Wisconsin Republicans should recruit a pro-growth conservative to run, not recall some big-government pro-tax Republican whose time has come and gone. Club members are watching Wisconsin’s Senate race closely.”
I suspect those words echo a lot of the Republican base and the Tea Party movement.
