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.
Behold: A major news organization has declared that the National Rifle Association is “winning the influence battle over gun control.”
A conservative fundraising group that had shied away from Missouri Rep. Todd Akin is now seriously considering whether to come to the embattled Republican's aid in his challenge to Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, an official with the group said Monday.
Matt Hoskins, the head of the political action committee, said in an email blast that Mr. Johnson's retirement gives conservatives a prime opportunity to elect a "strong, principled leaders" to the seat and that the opportunity should not be wasted on "another moderate Republican who won't fight for our freedoms."
"Our message to any conservative in South Dakota who might consider running for the U.S. Senate is this: You're not alone," Mr. Hoskins said. "If you're willing to fight for the Constitution and you can put together an effective grassroots campaign, there are thousands of freedom-loving Americans in South Dakota and across the nation who will support you."
