Club for Growth: Too Early to Make Pick For Bond’s Seat

February 2nd, 2009 by mopns · No Comments

From the Capital Calling blog:

The group hasn’t been shy about shaking the cage of the Republican establishment. They have been fiercely critical, for instance, of Bond’s record on spending over the last few years.

Club for Growth spokeswoman Nachama Soloveichik said her organization hasn’t made a decision on who to support in the Missouri’s 2010 Senate race.

“We’re looking at it. We’re looking at all of the open Senate seats,” Soloveichik said. “It’s pretty early. So, the extent to which we’re looking is not so intense yet. We’re nowhere near making an endorsement and I don’t know if we will. That’s going to come somewhere down the pipe.”

Soloveichik might have a point. Blunt and Steelman haven’t even officially announced they will run for the seat.

“It just depends,” said Soloveichik when asked if the Missouri Senate contest would get a closer look because it’s a vacant seat. “It depends on who’s running, what the field looks like, what the other seats look like. There are too many variables. It’s impossible to know right now.”

Soloveichik added that none of the potential Republican candidates have personally reached out to Club for Growth. She said she would get back to me if she found out anything different. Read more…

    The best thing about this Senate race is that Roy Temple will be helping the Blunt’s beat Robin Carnahan.

    What a spineless little weasel! He sold out to the Blunt’s for the money betraying the Carnahan’s who employed his dumb ass all those years. Guess loyalty isn’t a virtue Temple values.

    You should start an open forum to see which attack Temple will launch against Robin to help Blunt beat her. You know he knows all of her dirty little secrets!
