The political action wing of the anti-tax Club for Growth has endorsed Republican Sens. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Jim DeMint of South Carolina — even though Coburn isn’t sure he’s running yet.

“It is hard to find a more devoted duo to the principles of limited government and economic freedom than Sens. Coburn and DeMint,” said the Club’s new president, former Indiana Republican Rep. Chris Chocola .
