The congressman told the conservative media outlet that the PAC "defends conservative Republicans from the attacks that come from the mainstream," lamenting that in some races, "we've had leadership come and play and there was no counterbalance. So I'm going to do something about it."

"There's a war against the tea party. There's a war against conservatives, we're told," he added. "If somebody declares war on me I'm not just going to lie down and take it. I’m going to fight."
