When he was named president of the Club for Growth (clubforgrowth.org) last year, Pat Toomey didn't need anyone to tell him how important it was having the Republican lobbying group on his side in a tight political race.
When the former Lehigh Valley congressman almost unseated Arlen Specter in the Senate primary last spring, the club which specializes in helping candidates who favor small government, free markets and low taxes contributed nearly $1 million to his campaign.
I asked Toomey about his new job and his future political plans, when I called him at his offices in Washington:
Q: What's the mission of the Club for Growth?
A: It is ultimately to adopt pro-growth economic policy, particularly at the national level. We do that by advocating for limited government and lower taxes, less government spending, less regulation, all the hallmarks of a free-enterprise system. And we do it by encouraging our members, the 31,000 and growing membership that we have all across the country, to support candidates for the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate who agree with our Reaganesque vision of limited government as the condition that is necessary for economic prosperity.
