Club for Growth takes aim at impeachment backers Cheney, Anthony Gonzalez
The conservative organization is no stranger to taking on GOP incumbents in primaries.

A prominent conservative group is buttressing Donald Trump’s quest to exact revenge on his GOP critics, targeting two Republicans who backed the former president’s impeachment.

The anti-tax Club for Growth is endorsing Max Miller, a former Trump White House aide running to unseat Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, who was one of 10 House Republicans to vote for Trump’s impeachment. The conservative organization is also this week dispatching an official to Wyoming to meet with prospective challengers to GOP Rep. Liz Cheney, another impeachment backer.

Club for Growth President David McIntosh, a Trump ally who’s been in contact with the former president, argued the two members were natural targets because they had strayed ideologically on economic issues and their impeachment votes had made them politically vulnerable.

“This is part of a strategy we’ve got this cycle. Where we see incumbents who are not good on the economic issues … when they stumble and become vulnerable, and there’s a good strong economic conservative on the other side, we’re going to look at that race and get involved in the primaries,” said McIntosh, a former Indiana congressman.
