Club For Growth Making $1M Ad Buy Against Moderates on ObamaCare Repeal
The Club For Growth will spend $1 million on advertising to combat several moderate Republicans they see as standing in the way of ObamaCare repeal efforts.
Andy Roth, vice president of government affairs for the conservative organization, said costly regulations are the only thing hindering ObamaCare's repeal.
Three key moderates, Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania, Chris Collins of New York and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, were pictured on "The First 100 Days" as a sampling of those who are being targeted for their support of some of the measures.
Dent co-chairs and Kinzinger and Collins are members of the moderate "Tuesday Group" caucus in the House.
Roth said the congresspeople targeted in the advertisements all campaigned on ObamaCare repeal, but added that the fact they want to keep parts of the health care policy expansion should trouble the electorate.
Sandra Smith reported that the club will spend part of that million-dollar advertising purchase on at least seven other similar legislators.
Noting that the organization hasn't always been a supporter of President Trump, Roth remarked that "politics makes strange bedfellows."
"When he's right on politics, we're going to support him," Roth said.
He urged all representatives to "do what's good for the country" and put an end to the Affordable Care Act.
