The Club For Growth

Few rivalries in politics have lasted as long, or run as deep, as the one pitting Mike Huckabee against the Club for Growth. For 15 years, the anti-tax, anti-spending group has opposed Huckabee's candidates and Huckabee himself. The former Arkansas governor has called it the "Club for Greed," has accused it of weakening the party with an economic message that alienates less-rich Americans, has dived into races seemingly just to oppose its favorites.

As reported this morning by the New York Times's Maggie Haberman, Club for Growth Action will welcome Huckabee into the 2016 presidential race with $100,000 of spending on a 60-second ad, to warn Iowa and South Carolina voters about Huckabee's tax record.
