The Senate Conservatives Fund threw its support Friday behind state Sen. Joni Ernst's bid for the Senate in the Iowa GOP primary.
The Senate Conservatives Fund says that it is time for House Speaker John Boehner to go and they will keep track of the GOP lawmakers that support their effort to oust him from his leadership post.
The head of the Senate Conservative Fund said Wednesday that the group will not support former South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds in the race to replace retiring Sen. Tim Johnson, the Democrat who announced this week he will not seek re-election in 2014.
"We congratulate Senator McConnell on his victory and urge Republicans in Kentucky to come together to defeat Alison Lundergan Grimes," said Matt Hoskins, executive director of the Senate Conservative Fund, which spent millions of dollars backing Bevin.
"She's a principled conservative, she has strong grassroots support in the state, and she can win this race if she gets her message out," Mr. Hoskins said. "If elected, Joni Ernst will fight to cut wasteful spending, repeal Obamacare and balance the budget."
