Sharron Angle receives Club For Growth endorsement



Illustrates Angle as ‘Harry Reid’s worst nightmare’

Sharron Angle (R-NV), a conservative Republican running to replace U.S. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), learned on Wednesday that another major endorser has formally weighed in on the Nevada GOP Primary, this time from the Club for Growth, a leading free-market group that promotes limited government and no tax hikes.

“Sharron Angle is everything a pro-growth, limited-government, economic conservative can be, and everything Washington and the country need right now,” Club for Growth President Chris Chocola said in a statement. “She was the undisputed fiscal conservative leader in the Nevada State Assembly, and she has the courage and skill to step into the same role in the U.S. Senate. Sharron Angle is the true economic conservative in the Nevada Senate race, a candid, common-sense leader with the courage to stand up against liberal big spenders in both parties. Sharron is Harry Reid’s worst nightmare, and Nevada’s best hope. Her courageous, honest style and principled leadership will do more good in six years in the Senate than Reid’s corrupt backroom deals and trillion-dollar boondoggles could in a lifetime.”

Angle Spokesperson Jerry Stacy stated that Club For Growth is a welcomed positive jolt that gives Angle’s Republican primary race an additional boost, and noted that the continual swelling of support was due to Angle’s recognized efforts of heroically protecting taxpayers. “Mrs. Angle has earned more endorsements then all other candidates combined, and it’s due to her conservative credentials that her opponents can’t match. Her recognition stems from her battle-tested record of fighting for lower taxes and smaller government, a record that continues to earn her local and nationwide support that her primary opponents could only dream of having. It comes as no surprise to me that Mrs. Angle’s lead continues to surge and her support continues to grow.”

Club For Growth PAC joined an extensive list of more than 25 local and national conservative leaders and organizations backing Angle including Tea Party Express, Citizens United, Gun Owners of America, Conservative Radio Host Mark Levin, Chris Simcox and the Minuteman PAC, Phyllis Schlafly, Pat Boone, Western Representation PAC, Joe the Plumber, and many others.

Stacy concluded by mentioning that further major endorsements for Angle’s candidacy would be announced later in the week.

‘None of these candidates’ embarrasses Haley in Nevada primary

Though typically the idiom “second to none” is a compliment, for former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, it means her third defeat in the Republican presidential nomination process. And a humiliating one.
