Establishment Republican Mike Simpson Facing Grassroots Challenge

Bryan Smith and Mike Simpson 

Big Government Republican Congressman Mike Simpson of Idaho is under fire from Club for Growth Action Ad Campaign and other conservatives who are backing limited government constitutional conservative Bryan Smith in the Republican Primary.

Club for Growth Action has released an ad calling Simpson “Just Too Liberal.”

The ads criticize 15-year incumbent Republican Congressman Mike Simpson for supporting the Wall Street bailout, along with his vote for a bigger Obama stimulus, raising the debt limit without any spending cuts, and spending millions of dollars on a park in Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Francisco. The Club for Growth PAC has endorsed fiscal conservative Bryan Smith for the seat:

In a statement accompanying release of the ad Club for Growth President Chris Chocola said: “Career politician Mike Simpson is one of the most liberal, anti-taxpayer Republicans serving in Congress today, which is exactly why it’s so critical that Idaho voters replace him with a constitutional conservative like Bryan Smith.”

The TV ads are now running on broadcast and cable throughout the district.
