The Tea Party-affiliated group is endorsing three senators and nine congressmen, all conservatives and many of whom have sparred with GOP leadership.

All are from safely Republican territory and don't face threats from Democrats, and none appear to have much to worry about in their primaries, so it's unclear how much the endorsements matter.

"FreedomWorks PAC is working hard to bring fresh talent to the table, but it’s also critical to protect the new generation of leadership that has begun repopulating the Republican Party," FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe said.
