Club for Growth, a conservative anti-tax group that has injected itself into a number of intra-GOP fights in the past, launched a new digital campaign on Wednesday attacking a number of House Republican lawmakers and soliciting submissions for potential conservative challengers.
Launched by Club for Growth Action, the group's super PAC arm, the Primary My Congressman site features a list of nine representatives deemed insufficiently conservative.
In a statement, the Club for Growth said they hoped the push would "raise awareness of Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) who are currently serving in safe Republican seats."
“Big government liberals inhabit the Democratic Party, but they are far too common within the Republican Party as well,” Club for Growth President Chris Chocola said. “The Republicans helped pass billions of dollars in tax increases and they have repeatedly voted against efforts by fiscal conservatives to limit government."
The site features profiles for Reps. Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), Rick Crawford (R-Ark.), Frank Lucas (R-Okla.), Steve Palazzo (R-Miss.), Martha Roby (R-Ala.), Larry Bucshon (R-Ind.), Renee Elmers (R-N.C.) and Aaron Schock (R-Ill.). Each page contains a Club for Growth rating for the lawmaker, a breakdown of how Republican-leaning their district is, a list of their past votes, and a large button to "recommend an opponent."
The Club for Growth recently released its 2012 congressional scorecard. All of the campaign's targets have received relatively low ratings from the group. For the Club for Growth's highest-ranking members, click through the slideshow below.
