The Club for Growth PAC, which was previously not a fan of former governor Tommy Thompson, believes they have found their man in Wisconsin’s open-seat Senate race in 2012:
“The Club for Growth PAC proudly endorses Mark Neumann for the United States Senate,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “In Congress, he fought members of his own party on spending, received straight As from the National Taxpayers Union, and was a leader in the fight for limited government and economic freedom. Club members and Wisconsin Republicans looking for a fiscal conservative and pro-growth champion to send to Washington have a perfect candidate in Mark Neumann.”
Neumann’s own (sorry, it’s just too easy to make puns with that name) web site can be found here. In addition to Thompson, Wisconsin state assembly speaker Jeff Fitzgerald is also considering a bid for the U.S. Senate seat.
