ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Scott Franklin for Congress in Florida

For Immediate Release: October 20, 2020

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Lakeland City Commissioner Scott Franklin for Congress in Florida’s 15th Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “The 15th District is a crucial seat that Democrats are fighting to steal from conservatives in their quest to implement their far-left agenda. A veteran, small businessman, and local government leader, Scott Franklin is an experienced conservative outsider who will restore principled Congressional representation to the 15th District and fight the left’s plans for more big government, higher taxes, and lawlessness in the streets.

“Scott has dedicated his entire life to serving his country. A graduate of the United States Naval Academy, he served as a Naval Aviator for 26 years and defended our country in combat all over the world. He saw firsthand how oppressive government destroys freedom and opportunity, and he is determined to never let it happen here at home. As a small businessman, Scott understands the importance of getting government out of the way of entrepreneurs and job creators by lowering taxes, eliminating excessive regulations, and slashing wasteful spending. He has fought for these principles as a Lakeland City Commissioner, and he will continue fighting for them in Congress.

“Election Day is exactly two weeks away, and with control of the White House and Congress at stake, it is critical for conservatives to mobilize and get to the polls. A Biden/Harris administration and a Democrat- controlled Congress would undo all the progress President Trump and conservatives have made in cleaning up the mess in Washington and impose a radical socialist agenda that would come close to bankrupting the federal government and destroy the economy. We need effective conservative leaders like Scott Franklin in Congress to fight the far left, get our struggling economy moving again, and reduce the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government. Early voting begins this weekend, and we encourage 15th District voters to head to the polls and elect Scott as their next Congressman,” Russo concluded.
