RedState, Club for Growth Go After the Newest House Republican

Erick Erickson, in a show of serious ideological consistency, labels Rep. Parker Griffith’s party switch a “huge blow to Obama” and quickly puts the heat on the newest Republican member of Congress.

Here are Griffith’s earmark requests. He voted for Pelosi for Speaker. He’s actually been more regularly with Pelosi than Jim Marshall (D-GA). We can pick this guy off and get a real Republican in that seat.

The Club for Growth chimes in:

Griffith’s voting record is far from conservative, too. Granted, he voted against the Big 4 – Obama’s first budget, the Stimulus, Cap and Trade, and ObamaCare.  However, his vote on the budget is slightly deceptive since he originally voted for 9 of the 12 spending bills that make up the budget.  And he voted against all the Stimulus amendments that would reduce its size.
