ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Bill Hagerty for U.S. Senate in Tennessee

For Immediate Release: September 29, 2020

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Bill Hagerty for U.S. Senate in Tennessee.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “In his long and successful career in business and public service, Bill Hagerty has established himself as a proven leader with a record of fighting to strengthen our economy and bring jobs to Tennessee. With the Democrats fighting to retake the Senate and stop all the progress President Trump and conservatives have made in the last four years, we need Tea Party conservatives like him in Washington fighting to rein in out-of-control government, grow our economy, and protect American values.

“Bill is a successful entrepreneur and business leader who knows what it takes to stimulate the economy and create jobs. After building a successful career in the private sector, Governor Bill Haslam appointed him Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, where he enacted policies that attracted companies to the Volunteer State and created thousands of middle-class jobs. As the Trump-appointed U.S. Ambassador to Japan, Bill helped strengthen the U.S. partnership with Japan to combat the rising threats posed by China and North Korea. He worked for a new trade deal with Japan that removed tariffs on agricultural products, boosting American jobs and prosperity. Bill understands that a strong economy depends on limited government and individual liberty, and in the Senate, he will fight to get government out of the way of job creators and working families.

“The very future of our country is at stake in this election, and it is imperative that conservatives retain our Senate majority. The radical left is hoping that they can seize control of the White House and Congress by distorting President Trump’s record of success and capitalizing on the Coronavirus hysteria. That disastrous scenario would mean bankrupting our economy with socialist schemes like the Green New Deal and Medicare for All. American prosperity and freedom depend on limited government and a robust private sector, not divisive socialist schemes and failed big government programs. Our country needs a conservative Senate majority led by dedicated leaders like Bill Hagerty,” Russo concluded.
