Maddow: The far-right Club For Growth has launched the "Primary My Congressman!" initiative,
in which the group highlights Republican members of Congress who are insufficiently conservative by the group's standards. "Big government liberals inhabit the Democratic Party, but they are far too common within the Republican Party as well," Chris Chocola, Club For Growth's president, said in a statement.
Club For Growth hunts for “RINO” challengers
Looks like the Club for Growth will restrict its support to conservative congressional districts where any republican will probably win. (Quite a few of their senate candidates imploded last year, so perhaps they don't want to go there again any time soon.)
It's hard to imagine that there are any 'moderate' republican congressmen in such districts to begin with. To the extent there are, I suppose they will act more conservative now in fear of a primary challenge from the right. That would be bad for the country but even worse for the future of the republican party since most voters think it is out of touch already.

1. If the repukes don't act teabaggery insane enough, they'll be primaried
That's why they're acting as stupid as they are. They want to keep their jobs so be prepared for more hostage taking, shutdown threatening, and obstruction.
