I struggled to find ANY information about the Emerald Isle Republican when she first filed. No web presence whatsoever. But the DC-based Club For Growth appears to know all they need to know:
The Club For Growth was founded a number of years ago as a protest against Republicans who seemed to have forgotten the small-government, fiscally-conservative principles at the core of the GOP. In the early years, renowned free-market economist Stephen Moore spearheaded a lot of their efforts.
In recent years, The Club’s credibility has suffered with me. They’ve viciously gone after President Trump — starting in the primaries and continuing on well past his inauguration. (I often file them with the John Locke Foundation.)
I certainly don’t want to take anything away from Mrs. Cairns. More than one member of the Third District’s GOP field sought The Club For Growth’s endorsement.
