Club for Growth Targets Bennett

As if it hadn’t already made the point clear enough in recent months, the Club for Growth on Friday released a statement announcing that it will work to keep Utah Sen. Robert Bennett (R) from winning a fourth term in November.

“Bob Bennett is out of touch with the times and with his state, and Utah Republicans have better choices for their candidate in November,” said Club President Chris Chocola.

Spokesman Mike Connolly said that Friday’s announcement means that the Club is now fully committed to bringing its vast financial resources and powerful communication machine to bear on Bennett in the coming months.

“We’re going to look at advertising opportunities on the air, we’re going to look at direct mailings and contact education pieces with convention delegates and likely caucus goers,” Connolly said. “If it goes to a primary we’re going to be communicating with potential primary voters.”
