The U.S. Senate Conservatives Fund is asking Conservative Americans to back these five candidates as the republicans try to regain control of the senate this year. Obviously there are other Conservatives who need your support as well, but the Fund wants you to consider helping these five.
Ben Sasse (R-NE) is the president of Midland University in Fremont, Nebraska. He’s an expert on health care policy and will help conservatives repeal Obamacare.
Sasse was recently on the cover of National Review for a profile story that highlights his determination to stop Obamacare. He calls it an example of “what government can’t do well, wasn’t built to do, and inevitably fails at.”
Sasse also demonstrated why he’s the best candidate in this race when he went head to head with the liberals on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. He effectively explained why Obamacare is destroying our health care system and how free-market reforms will empower Americans with high-quality, affordable care.
Primary: May 13
|Matt Bevin (R-KY) is a Louisville businessman who understands we can’t spend money we don’t have. He will stand up to the big spenders in both parties.Bevin recently gave a major policy speech highlighting the core themes of his campaign.“This election is a choice,” he said. “Will we continue to give more power to this little intellectual elite or will we start down a new path — a path that empowers people to make decisions in their own lives?”|
Bevin raised $900,000 in the last three months of 2013 — a massive amount that shows the growing momentum of his campaign. It’s the biggest single fundraising quarter of any of our endorsed candidates so far.
Bevin has been endorsed by the Senate Conservatives Fund, FreedomWorks, Madison Project, Gun Owners of America and leading conservative voices like Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, and Erick Erickson.

|Chris McDaniel (R-MS) is a state senator who has consistently earned high conservative ratings and an attorney who fought Obamacare in the courts.McDaniel recently spoke out against the 1,500-page, $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill, which busts the budget, funds Obamacare, and includes a number of liberal policy riders. However, McDaniel’s primary opponent, incumbent Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS), voted with the Democrats to help pass the bill.|
State Senator Michael Watson wrote a powerful op-ed in the Jackson Clarion-Ledger explaining why people should vote for McDaniel. Watson said, “It is rare to find a political candidate sufficiently firm in his principles that he will not be swayed by threats or peer pressure. The voters of Mississippi are lucky to have such a candidate — my close friend and colleague Chris McDaniel.”
McDaniel has also attracted support from top conservative groups. He has been endorsed by the Senate Conservatives Fund, Club for Growth, Madison Project, FreedomWorks, and Tea Party Express and is the only candidate who has won the support of all five.

Wolf also announced PatientCare, a 17-page plan to replace Obamacare. Wolf’s plan would create a patient-centered, market-driven health care system that offers Americans high-quality, affordable care.
