Oh, that poor Club for Growth!
They’ve taken so much grief over the last few years for supporting “insurgent” candidates against the “establishment” in Republican primaries, and they get blamed when those insurgents prove to be too radical (reactionary, really) to win a general election.
This year in Arizona, they’ve endorsed establishment candidate Jeff Flake. So, they are avoiding all of that grief, right?
Here is Wil Cardon’s ad featuring Trent Franks:
Club for Growth is claiming that Franks is just bitter because he wanted to run and the Club wouldn’t support him. Here is their spokesman quoted at Talking Points Memo:
Trent Franks is a good man and it’s a shame that he is allowing his personal bitterness at the Club for Growth PAC’s support of Jeff Flake over him in the U.S. Senate race to cloud his judgment about liberal Wil Cardon.
By the way, you read that right: Wil Cardon is a liberal. Somehow I missed that.
