Club For Growth Back on TV for Justin Amash

The Club for Growth’s independent expenditure arm has started airing television spots again on behalf of Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., according to Federal Election Commission records.

The move could be indicative that Amash is in some political jeopardy just days ahead of the August 5 primary.

Amash is fending off a primary challenge from former East Grand Rapids School Trustee Brian Ellis, a self-funding candidate with endorsements from a slew of business-friendly groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The club is one of several tea party groups and members of Congress who are circling their wagons around the libertarian-minded Amash.

The club made two major expenditures involving television ad production and airtime purchases, each worth about $70,000, according to online records. One expenditure is in favor of Amash and the other is in opposition to Ellis.

The move comes about a week after it was reported the Michigan Chamber of Commerce started making six-figure television buys on behalf of Ellis.
