Former US Rep. Steve LaTourette – “The reason Democrats control the Senate is thanks to the efforts of the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the Tea Party.”

(Washington, DC) – This week, Main Street Advocacy launched a new digtal ad campaign entitled “Senate Candidates Hall of Shame.”  “The reason that Harry Reid and the Democrats control the U.S. Senate is thanks to the efforts of the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the Tea Party,” said former U.S. Rep. Steve LaTourette (R-OH), President of Main Street Advocacy.  “The far right’s attempts to purge the GOP of people they find to be ‘imperfect’ need to stop.”

The ad is the opening salvo in what will be a planned $8 million effort.  “We didn’t start this war, for years now, groups like the Club for Growth and their allies have waged a vicious intra-party civil war that has cost the Republican Party control of the U.S. Senate,” continued LaTourette.  “For the first time, there will be a group representing the governing wing of the Republican Party that will not only defend itself, but also push back.
