FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nov 13, 2006 - Many have said that "conservatives" were defeated on Tuesday. We say that is not true; it is the Republican Party that was defeated. Sadly, many members of the GOP have abandoned the principles that guided Ronald Reagan, culminating last week in major Republican losses in both the U.S. Congress, as well as the Kentucky General Assembly.
Fortunately, the national Club for Growth fared far better in elections, winning 7 of 8 races in which they endorsed a candidate in the primary and followed through the general. They did so by finding and supporting candidates who believe that big government is bad government. We couldn't agree more!
Who are we?
The Kentucky Club for Growth, a chapter of the national organization, is a group of citizens dedicated to expanding prosperity for working families through the Reagan doctrine of lower taxes, smaller government and strong free enterprise.
Why is the Kentucky Club for Growth needed?
The size and cost of government is going up, not down both nationally and here in the Commonwealth. It is time that conservatives gain control of government and demand fiscal discipline.
What will the Kentucky Club for Growth do?
The Kentucky Club for Growth will find, support and endorse candidates for elected office who are committed to free-market principles, lowering taxes, reducing spending and decreasing the size of government. Additionally, we will hold Frankfort accountable by monitoring legislation and providing scorecards to our members and the press after each legislative session.
