Club For Growth spends $1.16M supporting Rosendale and attacking Fagg in GOP primary

HELENA – Another outside group is making significant ad buys in Montana’s U.S. Senate Republican primary – this time to support state Auditor Matt Rosendale and go after one of his opponents, former state District Judge Russell Fagg of Billings.

Club for Growth Action, whose affiliated political action committee has endorsed Rosendale in the four-way Republican U.S. Senate primary, reported spending $632,000 on production and air time for the ad attacking Fagg. It began running on TV and online last week.

That spending came on top of $530,000 that Club for Growth Action spent on TV and digital ads supporting Rosendale earlier this month.
