#SC4: Josh Kimbrell Set To Receive National Endorsement



Upstate radio host and small businessman Josh Kimbrell is set to receive the endorsement of the national Club for Growth in his bid for South Carolina’s fourth congressional district (map), sources close to his campaign tell this news site.

The national group – which made clear recently that it is not affiliated with the S.C. Club for Growth – was originally intending to stay out of the race, we’re told.

Not anymore …

According to our sources, the group purchased nearly $10,000 of radio advertisements in the district in an attempt to boost Kimbrell’s prospects in this crowded race – which many believe has settled into a two-candidate contest between former state senator Lee Bright of Roebuck, S.C. and current state senator William Timmons of Greenville, S.C.

Those ads – unveiled on Thursday afternoon – target Timmons and state representative Dan Hamilton.

The gist of the ad?  That they don

“President Trump needs allies in Congress,” the group’s president David McIntosh said in a statement.  “Unfortunately, both William Timmons and Dan Hamilton’s previous statements about President Trump demonstrate they will not be reliable advocates to advance President Trump’s policies in Congress.”

Really?  What about Kimbrell’s previous statements about Trump?

Yeah …

“President Trump has fought hard to lower taxes, while William Timmons has voted to increase taxes,” McIntosh continued.  ” President Trump is trying to reduce spending, but Dan Hamilton has voted for millions of dollars in earmarks and wasteful spending.  Furthermore, Dan Hamilton’s biggest financial backers are the Realtors who spent millions of dollars opposing President Trump’s tax reform bill.”
