Grow­ing the move­ment: Club for Growth Foun­da­tion seeks future con­ser­v­a­tive lead­ers

Growing the movement: Club for Growth Foundation seeks future conservative leaders

EXCLUSIVE — The Club for Growth Foun­da­tion brings peo­ple from across the coun­try to Wash­ing­ton, D.C., as part of its fel­low­ship pro­gram to train peo­ple on how to advance their caus­es in local or state Repub­li­can pol­i­tics.
As such, 45 of this year’s Club for Growth Foun­da­tion fel­lows packed into the Wal­dorf Asto­ria Hotel in Wash­ing­ton late last week for a day of train­ing.

Club for Growth Foun­da­tion is legal­ly dis­tinct from the Club for Growth, which is wide­ly known for back­ing can­di­dates in Repub­li­can pri­maries who sup­port fis­cal con­ser­vatism. They are both run by for­mer Indi­ana GOP Rep. David McIn­tosh to sup­port lim­it­ed gov­ern­ment and eco­nom­ic growth.
“On the polit­i­cal side for Club for Growth, we were meet­ing can­di­dates over and over again who said, ‘We’re con­ser­v­a­tive, we’re for lim­it­ed gov­ern­ment.’ And then I’d ask them, ‘Why do you want to be in Con­gress?’ [and they’d say,] ‘Oh, I want to solve prob­lems,’” McIn­tosh told the Wash­ing­ton Exam­in­er. “And I’m think­ing good inten­tions, but if they get here to Wash­ing­ton and solve prob­lems as a mem­ber of Con­gress, they’re gonna think about cre­at­ing more gov­ern­ment.”
