Club for Growth PAC Endorses Justin Amash in Michigan-03
Posted on Jun. 28, 10 12:41 PM by Michael Connolly Topic: Elections

WASHINGTON – Club for Growth PAC today announced its endorsement of state legislator Justin Amash in the race to represent Michigan’s third congressional district, to replacing retiring Congressman Vern Ehlers.

“Justin Amash is a name pro-growth conservatives are going to hear and know for a long time,” said Club President Chris Chocola. “Amash epitomizes a new breed of limited government conservatives committed to breaking Washington’s addiction to deficits and debt, and freeing a rising, entrepreneurial generation to rescue our economy and our nation from political mismanagement.”

“In Lansing, Amash has fought against tax increases – even those supported by his fellow Republicans – and advocated for greater accountability and transparency, swearing off earmarks and even explaining his every legislative vote on his Facebook page. His election to Congress would not only mark a philosophical victory for those who believe in limited government and economic growth, but a cultural victory for those who believe in straight-forward, transparent democracy.”

Amash is the 13th candidate Club for Growth PAC has endorsed in the 2010 election cycle. He joins Senators Jim DeMint (S.C.) and Tom Coburn (Okla.), Congressman Tom Graves (GA-09), Senate candidates Sharron Angle (Nev.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Pat Toomey (Pa.), and House candidates Kevin Calvey (OK-05), Tim Huelskamp (KS-01), Mike Pompeo (KS-04), Robin Smith (TN-03), Jeff Duncan (SC-03), and Tim Scott (SC-01).
