Trump has criticized the Washington-based Club for Growth as being bitter because he refused to give them a $1 million contribution
WASHINGTON (AP) – A conservative advocacy group says it will spend at least $1 million on TV ads criticizing Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump in the early primary voting state of Iowa.
The Club for Growth announced its plans on Tuesday. Club president David McIntosh says the billionaire real estate mogul and reality TV star would be “terrible on economic growth.” He calls Trump “the worst kind of politician.”
Trump has criticized the Washington-based Club for Growth as being bitter because he refused to give them a $1 million contribution.
For now, the club appears to be going it alone in paying for Trump attack ads.
Larger conservative advocacy groups and the 15 other major candidates in the Republican primary have no immediate plans for a similar paid television campaign.
