Neumann vs. Thompson

Some folks seem to think the Wisconsin Club for Growth has picked sides in the 2012 United State Senate race in Wisconsin.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Under our charter, the Wisconsin Club for Growth takes no position on federal candidates. Likewise, the National Club for Growth takes no position on Wisconsin state or local candidates.The confusion among some people stems from recent advertisements run by the National Club for Growth regarding former Governor Tommy Thompson.

The National Club for Growth and Wisconsin Club for Growth are completely separate and independent organizations. Wisconsin Club for Growth focuses exclusively on state and local issue advocacy. We do get involved in Federal elections.

Furthermore, the Wisconsin Club was not consulted nor informed in advance of the recent advertising campaign. We first learned of the ad when it began airing on Fox News.

To be clear, Wisconsin Club for Growth does not intend to issue statements or offer opinions about candidates for United States Senate.

If you have comments regarding the recent advertising campaign, please contact the National Club for Growth at http://www.clubforgrowth.com .

One Response to Neumann vs. Thompson

  1. In the recent post, the WI Club for Growth said, “Wisconsin Club for Growth focuses exclusively on state and local issue advocacy. We do get involved in Federal elections.” Is that a typo? It is, at best, confusing.
