The usual suspects (teabaggers, Astroturf front groups) are lining up behind the most reactionary Nebraska senate candidate they can find, who this year happens to be Ben Sasse. Now the Washington Post is reporting that  the Club For Growth is backing him too.

This is what the Club for Growth said last June:
“Now that the House has defeated the Farm Bill, we should finally discuss real reform,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “The time for reform is now. We need to put farm subsidies on a path to elimination and we need to devolve food stamps to the state level where they belong.
From Wikipedia:
In 2008 and 2009, the Club for Growth opposed the $787 billion stimulus bill, Cash for Clunkers, cap and trade legislation, the Wall Street bailout, the auto bailout, the Affordable Care Act and the bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
     In 2003, the original Club for Growth strongly opposed the Medicare prescription drug benefit proposal.
From Sasse's website:
I understand the bill [Affordable Care Act], I can explain the bill, and I know how to rip it apart...
     This week I was honored to be endorsed by the group Senator Jim DeMint started, Senate Conservatives Fund.
Here's a conservative saying 'good riddance' to Jim DeMint on the occasion of his retirement from congress. And here's Sasse's hero on NBC's Meet The Press, trashing gay families and getting some pushback from Rachel Maddow:
