In a stunning development in the AZ-04 race, the Club for Growth PAC has endorsed Arizona State Senator Ron Gould. The Lake Havasu City conservative has a strong record on spending and limited government but lacked the funding to be competitive against current AZ-01 Congressman Paul Gosar and Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu.
The Club’s support for Gould should very quickly move his campaign into the very competitive column. An endorsement by the Club for Growth usually includes a large cash infusion into the campaign’s bank account.
Here is the text of the press release from the Club for Growth PAC.
Club for Growth PAC Endorses Ron Gould for U.S. Congress
Club for Growth President Chris Chocola: “Ron Gould is a taxpayer superhero and will be a champion for pro-growth policies in Congress.”
Washington, DC – The Club for Growth PAC today announced that it is endorsing State Senator Ron Gould for Congress in Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District. Current First District Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu are also running:
“Ron Gould is a taxpayer superhero and will be a champion for pro-growth policies in Congress,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Ron has stood up to the big spenders in Arizona time and time again and we believe he will do the same in Congress. Congressman Gosar, on the other hand, voted for the failed deal that gave Obama his trillion-dollar debt limit increase, supported funding for the radical left-wing group ACORN, and has repeatedly opposed spending cuts. The choice for Arizona’s fiscal conservatives is clear: Ron Gould for Congress.”
The Club for Growth is the nation’s leading group promoting economic freedom through legislative involvement, issue advocacy, research, and education.
