Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We are excited to support Susan Wright for Congress because she is a principled conservative leader who embodies the Tea Party principles of limited government, lower taxes and economic freedom.

“Susan is a dedicated public servant with extensive experience fighting to hold government accountable to local taxpayers. She knows that lower taxes and smaller government lead to more prosperity, more innovation, and more money in the pockets of hardworking Texans. Like her late husband, the late Congressman Ron Wright, Susan will stand up for Texas values, fight to protect our freedoms, and rein in the debt and overspending that threaten our prosperity. We agree with President Donald Trump and the Texas Republican Party that she will be ‘a terrific congresswoman for the great state of Texas.”

“While the economy is finally opening back up and Americans are getting back to work, President Biden and Democrats in Congress are undermining our economic recovery through reckless spending and massive social programs. Now they are trying to raise taxes so they can fund some of the largest big government expenditures in history under the guise of ‘rebuilding’ America. Make no mistake: the only way to rebuild America on a solid footing is to get government out of the way and let individuals and innovators grow the economy. We can count on Susan Wright to stand with conservatives in Congress and fight for pro-growth, small government policies that put America back to work,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

“I am supporting Susan Wright to replace her husband Ron in this Special Election. I have known Susan as a Grassroots Activist/State Republican Executive Committee member, and District Director for former State Rep. Bill Zedler, and current Rep. David Cook. She has been an active Republican for at least 30 years and having served on various boards and commissions, in addition to the things I already mentioned, has the experience to hit the ground running. She is like Ron was, a true public servant, not running for personal gain but to serve the people of this District. Please join me in supporting Susan Wright for Congress.”

“I have known Ron and Susan Wright for many years. Worked with Ron on various issues in Tarrant County, and know both of them very well. Susan is a conservative to the core. She has been active in the State Republican Executive Committee for many years, and is highly competent to take Ron’s seat. She will be a strong conservative voice in Congress and will represent the conservative values of our District. I am putting my full support behind Susan Wright, and ask others to do the same.”
-Kelly Canon, TX6 Grassroots Activist, VP of Legislative Affairs for the Arlington Republican Club, and Former Precinct Chair
