(CNN) - The powerful conservative group Club for Growth appears to have chosen their candidate to replace Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl: Rep. Jeff Flake.
From a statement released today:
"Run, Jeff, run!" said Club President Chris Chocola.
"Jon Kyl has been one of the strongest pro-growth leaders in the Senate for more than a decade, and on behalf of all Club members, I thank him for his vision and leadership," Chocola added. "Jeff Flake has a 100 percent lifetime score on the Club for Growth's Congressional Score Card, and is one of America's most vocal champions for limited government and economic liberty. He is the perfect successor to Jon Kyl in the Senate, and Club for Growth PAC strongly encourages him to run for the seat."
