The Senate Conservatives Fund, founded by former South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint, has endorsed Bryan Smith in his campaign to upset eight-term incumbent Mike Simpson in May’s Republican primary.
The fund adds to Smith’s list of endorsements, which so far includes the hard-right Club for Growth, The Madison Project, FreedomWorks, Citizens United, the National Association of Gun Rights and Young Americans for Liberty.
Simpson’s endorsements include some heavyweights, such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Rifle Association.

ALEXANDRIA, VA – Today, the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) endorsed Bryan Smith (R-ID) for the U.S. House of Representatives as part of its new House Conservatives Project. Bryan Smith is seeking the Republican nomination in Idaho’s 2nd Congressional District.
“Bryan Smith is a principled conservative who will fight to stop the massive spending and debt in Washington that are bankrupting our country,” said SCF Executive Director Matt Hoskins. “We’re very proud to support Bryan Smith for Congress and we’re excited to do our part to help him get his message out.”
SCF launched a new website today where its members can donate directly to Bryan Smith’s campaign. SCF pays all processing fees so Smith will receive 100% of the funds contributed to his campaign.
ABOUT BRYAN SMITH
Bryan Smith is challenging Congressman Mike Simpson (R-ID), an incumbent Republican who has voted for bailouts, higher spending, and more debt.
This race has become ground zero for the Washington establishment’s fight to protect the status quo. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is already on the air with deceptive TV ads smearing Bryan Smith because they know his election will threaten crony capitalism in Washington.
Bryan Smith is a strong believer in limited government, free enterprise, and individual liberty. He believes that our country’s departure from these principles have created an overreaching federal government that now dictates nearly every aspect of our lives, from the type of light bulbs we buy to the amount of water we use in the shower. He is running for Congress to bring these common sense values to Washington.
Bryan and his wife, Sharon, live in Idaho Falls, ID and have five children.
The Senate Conservatives Fund is a national, grassroots organization that helps elect true conservative leaders to the U.S. Senate. SCF recently launched a new initiative called the House Conservatives Project to support promising candidates for the U.S. House.
