Club for Growth PAC & Madison Project Endorse Ratcliffe

Conservative Groups Continue to Back Ratcliffe’s Bid to Unseat Ralph Hall

ROCKWALL, TX – Former U.S. Attorney John Ratcliffe’s bid to unseat 17-term incumbent Ralph Hall continues to gain momentum. This morning, national conservative organizations the Club for Growth PAC and The Madison Project have endorsed Ratcliffe – citing his proven, conservative record and the need for new and energetic leadership in the 4th

“John Ratcliffe is a constitutional conservative who will champion economic freedom and individual liberty in Congress,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Like Senator Ted Cruz, John Ratcliffe understands that the big spenders in both parties have led us to $17 trillion in debt, and he’ll stand up for pro-growth policies in Washington.”

Ratcliffe is just the third U.S. House candidate that the Club for Growth PAC has endorsed this cycle. “I am thrilled to have received the endorsement of the Club for Growth,” Ratcliffe said. “They have demonstrated a commitment to promoting the pro-growth, limited-government principles I so firmly believe in. I intend to go to Washington as a fighter for conservative values, and am grateful for their support.”

The Madison Project recognized Ratcliffe’s desire to stand up against the status quo in Washington. “Whereas Hall has turned his position into a career devoid of any desire to fight the status quo, Ratcliffe is picking the arduous path to a congressional seat precisely because he wants to send a message to career politicians,” said the Madison Project through a press release. “It’s no secret that Washington is broken right now,” Ratcliffe said. “We can’t expect better results unless we stop sending back the same people. I am thankful that the Madison Project sees me as someone who will stand up to President Obama’s failed policies every single day.”

The runoff election will be held on May 27th. An independent poll released last week by Wenzel Strategies showed Ratcliffe with a commanding 47% – 35% advantage in the race. The winner will face no Democratic opposition in the November general election.
