With Rep. Paul Ryan deciding to forgo running for the senate seat being vacated by Herb Kohl, former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson became the most talked about likely GOP candidate.

But the powerful fiscally conservative Club for Growth sees things differently.

From a statement:

“Tommy Thompson raised taxes as Governor, supported ObamaCare, and now he wants to run for the United States Senate? April Fools was weeks ago,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Wisconsin Republicans should recruit a pro-growth conservative to run, not recall some big-government pro-tax Republican whose time has come and gone. Club members are watching Wisconsin’s Senate race closely.”
