Ellmers target of free-market PAC again

A national free-enterprise political action committee that has hammered away at U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers for months is out with a new salvo.

Club for Growth Action, the political arm of Club for Growth, begins a 30-second broadcast and cable TV and ad that will hit markets in Raleigh and Greensboro on Tuesday, and includes digital advertising.

That ad will run for about two weeks and cost about $400,000, according to the group.

Club for Growth has endorsed her opponent in the Republican primary: Jim Duncan.

The organization claims she has not been conservative enough, and is “way too liberal for North Carolina,” despite being swept into office on a Tea Party wave.
