We have troubling news to share. Please read this carefully.

Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT)Last week, POLITICO reported that Senate Republicans “lashed” conservatives Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) in a private meeting for their efforts to stop Obamacare funding and for supporting the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF).

These unnamed Republicans attacked SCF and our grassroots supporters across the country because we ran TV and radio ads calling on them to join the fight to defund Obamacare.

They’re mad because you’re holding them accountable.

Thankfully, you have some true friends in Washington. When pressed by their colleagues to disavow you, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee refused. In fact, POLITICO reported that Cruz defiantly shot back, “I will not.”

Now that’s what courage looks like.

We wish the story ended here, but it does not.

Yesterday, Glenn Beck revealed the identity of the Republican senator who led the attack against conservatives and said that anyone who supports the Senate Conservatives Fund is a traitor and should be treated like an enemy.

That senator was Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the Republican Leader.

Mitch McConnell (R-KY)Mitch McConnell thinks you’re a traitor, but he’s the one who quietly worked with Harry Reid (D-NV) and President Obama to raise the debt limit, increase taxes, and fund Obamacare. He’s the one who betrayed the voters in his own party and abandoned our nation’s founding principles.

Unfortunately, Mitch McConnell wasn’t just speaking for himself. His hostility toward conservatives is shared by many other Republicans who don’t want to fight for our values.

This is a major problem and it’s up to us — the grassroots — to solve it.

We must rise up and put these people out of business. If we work together, we can elect strong leaders who will turn this country around.

The Senate Conservatives Fund will suggest steps to take in the coming days, but for now please pray for our country. These are troubling times and our nation needs wisdom and courage to choose the right way forward.

Thank you for your continued support.

Best regards,

Matt Hoskins
Executive Director
