Club for Growth PAC to Oppose Sen. Robert Bennett

WASHINGTON - The Club for Growth PAC today announced it will oppose U.S. Sen. Robert Bennett (R-Utah) in his 2010 bid for the Republican nomination for a fourth term in the United States Senate.

“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.

“Our extensive research suggests Utah Republicans already understand this, as they have begun rallying around several viable and superior candidates,” Chocola said. “The Club for Growth PAC is committed to seeing one of them defeat Bennett either at the nominating convention in May or in a primary election in June.”

“Bennett’s record, whether on spending, earmarks, or his disastrous plan for a federal health care takeover, is part of the problem in Washington,” Chocola said. “Utah deserves a pro-growth, free-market reformer in the Senate who will instead become a part of the solution. The Club for Growth PAC will today begin working to help Utah Republicans elect one.”

Among Bennett’s recent Senate lowlights:

· He voted for TARP, the $750 billion Wall Street bailout;
· He voted to save the disgraceful “Bridge to Nowhere” earmark;
· He refused to block funding for any further bailouts of auto manufacturers;
· He voted against redirecting wasteful Defense earmarks toward improved health care for disabled veterans;
· Voted against a resolution stating the Senate had a “moral obligation” to cut spending;
· After voting against President Obama’s 2010 budget, Bennett voted for most of the bloated spending bills comprising it;
· Bennett’s health care proposal would impose an unconstitutional individual mandate, increase federal taxes and spending by hundreds of billions of dollars, and force Americans to pay their insurance premiums through the IRS.
