Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Senator Grassley is a fiscal hawk committed to reining in our out-of-control government spending. He’s earned the respect of his colleagues as a commonsense Conservative with the moral courage to stand up to wasteful spending policies liberals try to jam down our throats. His track record and commitment to preserving our constitutional liberties has earned him the endorsement of fellow conservatives like President Trump and Sean Hannity.

“As a life-long Iowan, Senator Grassley still lives on his Iowa family farm and knows firsthand how our record- high inflation and disrupted supply chains are crushing small business and farmers in Iowa. Growing up towards the end of the Great Depression, Senator Grassley’s conservative principles were ingrained in the core of who he is and have given him the conviction to fight to restore fiscal responsibility in Washington, D.C.

“Not only has his leadership in the Senate helped stop wasteful spending, but as Chairman and a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Grassley helped lead the charge to ensure we had solid conservative justices on the Supreme Court like Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett – securing the future of a conservative majority on the Supreme Court for decades to come.

Tea Party Express applauds his proven record of consistent fiscal conservatism through the years and his unwavering commitment to the people of Iowa. We are delighted to offer our endorsement to Senator Grassley for re-election to the United States Senate,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

“Chuck Grassley is as frugal with taxpayer money as he is with his own. He works to root out waste, fraud and abuse in government.” – Renea Anderson, Dunlap, Iowa

“There’s no better taxpayer watchdog than Iowa’s Chuck Grassley. I support him because he never quits working for our conservative values.” – Steve Kruse, Ogden, Iowa

“The Democrats have created a crisis at our southern border and record high inflation. We need Chuck Grassley’s commonsense in Washington now more than ever.” – Joni Scotter, Marion, Iowa
