LAMBRO: Bucking big-government conservatives

Club for Growth’s influence on GOP races

Question of the Day

Should Congress make English the official language of the U.S.?

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.
