Club for Growth ad targets Harshbarger in 1st District

The Club for Growth is out with an ad targeting 1st Congressional District candidate Diana Harshbarger for her own spot demanding medical manufacturing to be brought back from China when her own husband pleaded guilty to mislabeling drugs from that country.

The Club for Growth has said it will spend more than half a million dollars in support of rival Republican candidate Timothy Hill, a state representative from Blountville.

“Harshbarger was the officer of a company busted for selling counterfeit Chinese drugs to treat American dialysis patients, claiming the drugs were American-made and approved,” the narrator says. “Used on innocent veterans and Medicare patients, Harshbarger’s company charged taxpayers full price for cut-rate Chinese drugs. Dishonest Diana Harshbarger, wrong for Congress.”

Former Kingsport Mayor John Clark, another candidate among the 16 Republicans running for the seat, is out with a new ad pledging to stand with President Donald Trump against the “cancel culture.”

    Hit her again Club For Growth! Just when conservatives have a chance to replace tepid conservative Phil Roe (Heritage-69%) with the great Timothy Hill (ACU-88%) along comes No Record Candidate Harshbarger trying to buy the seat by dumping over $900,000 into the campaign.

    The Club For Growth is a wonderful organization for conservatives to contribute to because it operates with an overhead of less than 10% of its spending on candidates. The Club’s support of Timothy is an indication that he has a very good chance of winning because the Club has an over 80% win percentage in most years.

    In a page white paper (2011) the CFG excoriated Utah Gov Huntsman as he declared a presidential run by saying “There is now widespread recognition that the next President must address the enormous threat posed by federal spending that threatens national bankruptcy.”

    These people, along with Heritage etc, shift like the wind. NOW, I suppose, debt is good and we should elect candidates who couldn’t care less about debt. That seems to be the attitude as we have passed annual DEFICIT budgets during the Trump years well before Covid showed up.

    Can you give an ACLU rating once in a while?

      Charles, in a conversation about who will actually be elected to govern in Tennessee anything other than our two or three liberal ghettos why would we ever want to do an irrelevant thing like that?

    Actually Charles that might be helpful. I would be interested in how the ACLU rates the 16 congressional candidates. For those of us who are concerned about the cultural wars currently raging in this country. an ACLU rating would be enlightening. Kind of like golf, lowest score wins. In the Senate race, the dumbest commercial may go to Dr George Flynn. He pledges to stand up against President Trump. Smart move in a party that supports the President by some 90 percent.

      Eddie, Flynn is using the same electoral strategy as Chairman Manny and all candidates running against an incumbent or heavy favorite. This Senate race began with Hagerty being the prohibitive favorite with it being generally acknowledged from his record that he was from the centrist/tepid conservative wing of the party. Chris Devaney therefore came up with Operation Unhagerty the goal of which was to make the Chairman run as this conservative zealot to pick up votes from the right naturally disinclined to support a candidate like Hagerty. Now Flynn, who is in mid single digits with no chance anyway, sees that since both candidates are pledging their loyalty to Trump, his path to maximize his votes is to win the few “Never Trump” Republican votes that may be left.

      It’s all so phony-baloney cynically choreographed! That’s why I say “Look at their damn records folks, not their campaigns.”
