Club for Growth PAC Endorses Andrew Harris in Maryland-1 (over RINO Wayne Gilchrest)
The Club For Growth ^ | August 14, 2007

Today, the Club for Growth PAC endorsed Republican Maryland State Senator Andrew Harris in Maryland’s first congressional district’s Republican primary.

State Senator Andrew Harris has a consistent track record of fighting for limited government and pro-growth policies. Harris led the floor fight against the Wal-Mart Tax bill in the Maryland State Senate and sponsored a repeal of the Maryland inheritance tax (SB 160, 2000). In a demonstration of his principled independence, he voted against 6 out of 9 state budgets (SB 323, HB 935, SB 508, HB 147, AP 03/28/06, HB 50) and sponsored of a constitutional amendment to protect private property rights from eminent domain abuse (AP, 02/21/06). Harris has also won a similar challenge in the past, ousting an incumbent Republican State Senator in a 1998 primary.

This is a good development. In addition to being a conservatve, Andrew Harris is a practicing physician, and would be a credible voice on health care issues.

The “Club for Growth” hasn’t always chosen conservatives.

I wouldn’t automatically vote for their choices.

Yeah but in this case he will be up against Wayne Gilchrest, the biggest RINO in the house.
