ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Cynthia Lummis for U.S. Senate in Wyoming

For Immediate Release: August 4, 2020

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of former Rep. Cynthia Lummis to replace retiring U.S. Senator Mike Enzi in Wyoming.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Without a doubt, the most qualified and conservative candidate in this race is Cynthia Lummis. Cynthia has the experience and record of achievement to get things done on day one as a new Senator, where she will be a bulwark against the radical left’s assault on our values and our Constitution. She is a fitting choice to continue the work of Senator Mike Enzi, whose more than 40 years of public service has left a tremendous impact on Wyoming. We thank him for his service and commend his dedication to the conservative cause.

Cynthia Lummis is a fourth generation Wyoming cattle rancher, lifelong public servant, and champion of conservative values. In her years of service in both the Wyoming Legislature and the U.S. Congress, she has stood up against radical environmentalists and coastal liberals to protect Wyoming’s natural and mineral resources and preserve its rural way of life. A founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, Cynthia fought to rein in out-of-control spending, reduce onerous taxes and regulations, and balance the federal budget. She will continue to fight for those Tea Party values as a U.S. Senator, and we could not be more pleased to endorse her today.

“With conservative control of the Senate hanging in the balance, it is critical to elect principled individuals who have already proven to be effective legislators. If Chuck Schumer and the far left take control of the Senate, the results will be disastrous. New Supreme Court vacancies will be filled by activist liberals, left wing pet projects like the Green New Deal and Medicare for all will be one step closer to reality, and tax and regulatory reform that stimulates the economy will go by the wayside. In short, the Great American Recovery will be over before it really gets going again. Hard working American families and entrepreneurs cannot afford for that to happen. Conservatives must turn out on election day to hold the Senate majority and elect staunch conservative leaders like Cynthia Lummis,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements of support from conservative leaders:

“I served in the Wyoming House of Representatives with Cynthia Lummis. She was effective. I served in the Wyoming Senate with her. She was a leader and a successful legislator. When I came to the U.S. Senate, she became a world-renowned State Treasurer, another area of expertise. Then she successfully ran for our lone seat in Congress. She was a formidable campaigner. She did a spectacular job for eight years and founded the Western Caucus that gave us the clout to preserve Wyoming’s Abandoned Mine Land money and much more. She is the uniter we need. Cynthia will put Wyoming first and be a force to be reckoned with in Washington. That’s why I am proud to wholeheartedly endorse Cynthia in the race for U.S. Senate. Diana and I look forward to doing all that we can to support her election.” – Senator Mike Enzi

“Now, more than ever, Wyoming needs a gritty champion for our conservative values. Filling Mike’s shoes is no small task, and taking on Washington’s big spenders and bigger government will require someone that has proven they can do it and win. Bobbi and I support Cynthia because she is all these things. I know Cynthia will stand side by side with me in support of President Trump and for policies that are right for Wyoming. I will work for her, vote for her, and fight alongside her.” — Senator John Barrasso

Gun Owners of America is proud to endorse Cynthia Lummis to represent Wyoming in the United States Senate. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for eight years, Cynthia was a strong Second Amendment advocate—even willing to buck moderate Republican leadership to protect Wyoming’s interests. Strong pro-Second Amendment advocates value the Constitution and its principles more than party loyalty or personal gain.”-Tim Macy, Chairman, Gun Owners of America

Cynthia Lummis is a strong leader. As a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus she fought to reduce wasteful Washington spending, adhere to the Constitution and defend the conservative values we hold dear. She made Wyoming proud in the House of Representatives and she will do the same in the Senate. I am proud to endorse her for the United States Senate.” – Senator Ted Cruz

“Cynthia is simply the best choice for the U.S. Senate in Wyoming. She is an experienced principled Statesman. Her voting record is evidence that shows this. She has a backbone to stand up to the Party Bosses when they are not right. She is just one of a few that has the record and experience to prove she will honor her Oath of Office to Support and Defend the U.S. Constitution. She will listen and learn about the problems facing Wyoming residents face at the Federal Level. And her record shows she will work with Wyoming residents to develop positive Constitutional solutions. She is Wyoming through and through. Her pro-limited government, pro-business, pro-Second Amendment, pro-liberty values are exactly what the people of Wyoming are looking for in their next U.S. Senator. In the House of Representatives, Cynthia walked-her-talk in voting to reduce spending, uphold the Constitution, and protect the unborn. Again, Cynthia is the best choice for Wyoming in the U.S. Senate.” – Rick Martin, Washakie County
