Club for Growth Action Hires Blacklisted Firm

Posted January 31, 2014 at 9:58am

The Club for Growth’s political action arm announced Friday that it has added Jamestown Associates, a media firm that the GOP’s House and Senate campaign arms have reportedly blacklisted, to its media production team.  

“We’ve long admired Jamestown Associates for their creativity, winning record in tough campaigns, and the quality of their product,” Club for Growth President Chris Chocola said in a news release. “When we heard recently that they would have more time to work with Club for Growth Action we immediately seized the opportunity.”  

Chocola’s statement alludes to the fact that both the National Republican Senatorial Committee  and the National Republican Congressional Committee  reportedly will not use Jamestown Associates’ services and are encouraging others in the party not to as well.  

The committees’ decisions were based in part on Jamestown’s work on behalf of the Senate Conservatives Fund, which is backing primary challengers to Republican senators.  

The club also supports primary challengers to Republican incumbents. It’s even set up a website called, “Primary My Congressman!”
