Democrats’ Senate seats are rated tossups in Montana, Virginia and Wisconsin. Missouri and North Dakota were in the tossup/tilt Republican column at this writing. Mr. Obama and other Democrats don’t talk about the economy nowadays, and for a good reason: It stinks. Last week, the U.S. Department of Labor reported that the unemployment rates rose last month in 44 states. It has become obvious to all but the most dyed-in-the-wool Democrats that economic growth isn’t their strongest suit.
What we need are pro-growth policies to replace the tax-and-spend, anti-job policies we have now, and fresh faces in Congress who will vote to enact them.
The Club for Growth is getting us there one upset race at a time, replacing aging establishment pols with reformers to put America back on the road to economic recovery with plentiful jobs once again.
