ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Senator Thom Tillis in North Carolina

For Immediate Release: September 24, 2020

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Senator Thom Tillis for reelection in North Carolina.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “With North Carolina poised to determine who controls the White House, Senate, and Supreme Court, the stakes could not be higher in this election. Senator Tillis has been a staunch advocate for lower taxes, smaller government, and economic freedom in both Raleigh and Washington, and he is a key vote to confirm President Trump’s nominee to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“Senator Tillis’ life is a testament to the power of the American Dream. Through hard work and faith, he worked his way from an impoverished childhood to a successful career in business. Throughout his time in public service, both as a North Carolina State Representative and a U.S. Senator, he has worked to remove government-imposed barriers to the kind of success he has enjoyed. As Speaker of the State House of Representatives, he led successful efforts to reduce state income and gas taxes and abolish the estate tax. And in the Senate, he joined with fellow conservatives to pass President Trump’s historic tax relief for families and entrepreneurs and eliminate job-killing regulations. That’s the sort of leadership that will bring jobs back to North Carolina and bring federal government spending under control.

“During his time in public service, Senator Tillis has demonstrated his keen business skills of getting things done. He is an extraordinarily effective legislator who has played a key role while serving in Raleigh and in Washington, DC in getting things accomplished. Conservatives have been buoyed by his strong leadership, and he is a vital part of what Republicans are accomplishing.

“Senator Tillis has pledged to fulfill his constitutional duty to swiftly confirm President Trump’s nominee to replace Justice Ginsburg. Senate Democrats are pulling every dirty trick out of their bag to block the Senate from considering the President’s nominee, and some are even threatening to pack the Court with activist liberal justices if they take control of the Senate. Such a move would empower the far left to fundamentally alter our country for generations and erase the progress President Trump and Republicans have made in restoring American greatness. For the sake of America’s future, we must unite behind conservatives like Senator Tillis to hold the Senate in November,” Russo concluded.
