TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A group that backs conservative Republicans is running ads in Florida taking the side of liberal U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson and against moderate Congressman Patrick Murphy.

And in doing so, the Club for Growth might be butting its nose into a potential Democratic U.S. Senate primary.

Murphy is running for Senate and Grayson is considering a run. The Club for Growth opposes the Export-Import Bank, a federal agency that guarantees loans to major exporters.

The House is voting soon on whether to renew the agency. The ad says Grayson doesn’t support renewal and Murphy does. It also says Murphy wants to funnel billions of dollars to “corporate fat cats.”

It urges people to call Democratic Congressman and side with Grayson

The group is spending $250,000 to run the ad statewide.
