The Senate Conservatives Fund, however, which has given millons of dollars to tea party Senate candidates in others states, but is looking for someone other than Carr.
“We’re a little concerned about Carr,” said the group’s executive director, Matt Hoskins. “If he couldn’t get traction in the House race, he probably won’t get traction in the Senate race either.
“If Carr doesn’t catch fire and a more compelling conservative enters the race, he could be the spoiler that helps re-elect Lamar Alexander. That's something we want to avoid.” (link)
About Senate Conservatives Fund
Electing true conservatives to the U.S. SenateSCF is a grassroots organization dedicated to electing strong conservative leaders to the United States Senate. We do not support liberal Republicans and we're not affiliated with the Republican Party or any of its campaign committees.
SCF seeks to bring bold conservative leadership to Washington by supporting candidates who have the courage to fight for the timeless conservative principles of limited government, strong national defense, and traditional family values.
Our goal is to enact policies that will restore America's greatness. Therefore, we only support candidates who have the courage to:
- Stop Spending
Congress must be forced to cut spending. SCF candidates support a constitutional amendment to balance the federal budget without raising taxes.
- Repeal ObamaCare
President Obama's health care takeover is set to destroy American medicine and bankrupt our country. SCF candidates support the full repeal of this dangerous law.
- Enforce Immigration
The federal government has failed to enforce our nation's immigration laws. SCF candidates support real border enforcement and oppose amnesty.
- Defend the 2nd Amendment
The 2nd Amendment protects our freedom to keep and bear arms. SCF candidates oppose all efforts to eliminate or restrict this right.
- Ban Bailouts
Bailouts force taxpayers to reward failure and punish success. SCF candidates oppose bailouts and believe corporations should be forced to compete.
- End Earmarks
Congressional earmarks are a gateway drug to higher spending. SCF candidates support a permanent ban on earmarks to break Washington's addiction to pork.
- Protect Life
Americans should not be forced to fund activities they find morally objectionable. SCF candidates oppose taxpayer funding for abortion.
