Ken Blackwell Joins Club For Growth Board: Hailed As Economic Conservative

Here's a link about the Club for Growth, and below is the full text of the presser. Inquiring minds are wondering: Does this move mean the Club's very well-financed PAC won't be pouring any money into OH-02's GOP primary against U.S. Rep. Jean Schmidt? In 2005, the Club tried to stop her nomination by supporting State Rep. Tom Brinkman, who is on the ballot again this year.

Washington – The Club for Growth is honored to welcome former Ohio Secretary of State and 2006 Republican candidate for governor Ken Blackwell as the newest member of its board.

Ken Blackwell issued a statement, saying, “I am honored to join the Club for Growth’s board. The Club for Growth has played a crucial role in advocating for free-market, limited-government policies and the prosperity that results from those policies. I look forward to joining their courageous fight on behalf of American taxpayers in what promises to be a rewarding and fruitful partnership.”

“Ken Blackwell is a long-time principled defender of tax payers and a strong proponent of pro-growth, limited-government policies,” said Club for Growth President Pat Toomey. “He has an impressive history of fighting for lower taxes and against bloated government spending in Ohio. It is a privilege to have someone of his stature and principle join the Club for Growth board, and we look forward to working with him in the coming weeks and months to promote economic growth in our country.”

    They had to give Ken something to do, to save his vanity. And how about his wife Rosa? She can support the family quite well on her million dollar package from the Cincinnati Public Schools.

  2. Except, she finally, thank goodness, lost that job.
