Club for Growth will help Murkowski donors seek refunds

As it did earlier against Sen. Arlen Specter, the Club for Growth will be sending mailers to Lisa Murkowski’s donors helping them to seek refunds of their donations. From the Club:

As in a similar effort that cost Sen. Arlen Specter more than $800,000, Club for Growth PAC will contact more than 1,500 of Murkowski’s donors via mail.

“Lisa Murkowski received this money running as a Republican, and now she’s running against the Republican,” said Club President Chris Chocola.  “She promised to support the winner of the Republican Primary, then broke her word…”

The mailing will include a letter explaining Murkowski’s broken promise to support the Republican Party nominee, and a letter addressed to the Murkowski campaign that donors can use to ask for their money back.
