The Club for Growth had high praise for four leading U.S. Senate candidates around the country today for their strong opposition to ObamaCare. Rand Paul made the short list.

“Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Pat Hughes have made a pact today with the people of their states to fight for health care and economic freedom, even if Congress passes ObamaCare this year,” Club President Chris Chocola said today. “These candidates are running as champions of economic liberty, limited government, and real reform. Their pledges today give voters in their states reason to believe them.”

The Club for Growth distributed the first copies of their “Repeal It!” petition Wednesday afternoon to the top fiscally conservative candidates in the country. Rand strongly encourages everyone, including all of his opponents who oppose Obama’s health care takeover, to go to www.repealit.org and show support for real health care reform.


Grayson Files for U.S. Senate, Signs Pledge to Repeal Federal Takeover of Health Care

- Don’t Miss Live, Interactive Webcast Tonight -

Florence, Kentucky –

            Secretary of State Trey Grayson filed paperwork this morning in Frankfort to officially become a candidate for U.S. Senate and announced a list of common sense conservative reforms he will support if elected.
            Grayson also signed the Club for Growth’s Repeal It! Pledge: “I hereby pledge to the people of Kentucky, upon my election to the Senate, to sponsor and support legislation to repeal any federal health care takeover passed in 2010, and replace it with real reforms that lower health care costs without growing government.”

            Grayson’s supporters are hosting house parties in 95 counties around the Commonwealth tonight to participate in an historic interactive, live video webcast moderated by Lexington media personality Dave Baker.  Viewers will listen to Grayson explain his vision for Kentucky’s future and have the opportunity to ask questions.

            “The list of problems our country faces is growing, and the liberal majority in Washington keeps spending and borrowing and expanding government to try to fix them, but it’s not working.  We need conservative leaders who will stand up against the status quo and fight for reforms to cut spending and reduce the deficit,” said Grayson.  “I look forward to discussing my ideas and answering questions this evening.”
