Club For Growth Endorses Kevin Cramer
US House candidate Kevin Cramer is raking in the endorsement this week. Yesterday FreedomWorks endorsed Cramer, today the fiscally conservative group Club for Growth endorsed Cramer as well.
Earlier today I wrote about the the CfG given Rep. Rick Berg (who is running for the Senate this cycle) a pretty low rating for his first term votes.
The Club for Growth endorsed Public Service Commissioner Kevin Cramer today, just one day after FreedomWorks announced its support for his bid.
The North Dakota Republican Party and its leaders support Public Service Commissioner Brian Kalk, who received the party’s official endorsement at the state convention earlier this year. Cramer opted to run outside the convention system — an infrequent move in North Dakota — and challenge Kalk in the June 12 primary.
The state GOP’s support gives Kalk financial and political resources, and now national groups could boost Cramer with their own deep pockets and fundraising network.
It’s not clear just how much support the NDGOP has given Brian Kalk (my impression is that it hasn’t been much), and Cramer has some pretty deep campaign pockets of his own and likely won’t need much in the way of financial support from Club for Growth or FreedomWorks.
But the endorsements certainly help.Tags: Brian Kalk, election 2012, Kevin Cramer, North Dakota News, pam gulleson
