ELECTION ALERT: Endorses Jeremy Hunt for Congress in Georgia

For Immediate Release June 15, 2022

Sacramento, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Jeremy Hunt in Georgia’s Second Congressional District.  

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We are thrilled to support Jeremy Hunt for Congress because he is a conservative fighter who isn’t afraid to stand up to the Washington, D.C. political elites who are determined to destroy our country.  This district is one of the poorest in the nation, and Jeremy’s goal is to help make things more affordable for the people. Control inflation, stop spending taxpayer money foolishly and encourage more free market solutions are his priorities in order to end economic hardship.

Jeremy Hunt has the necessary leadership skills and principled character needed to restore American prosperity. After graduating from West Point, Jeremy went on to serve as a U.S. Army Captain where he defended our American values both at home and abroad.  His unwavering commitment to protect and preserve our cherished freedoms has earned him endorsements from key President Trump appointees, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former U.S. Secretary of the of Interior Ryan Zinke

Jeremy Hunt is committed to working on behalf of all Georgians to provide relief against the burdensome government regulations and skyrocketing inflation rates stifling profits and crushing small businesses.  He knows how important agriculture is to Georgia’s economy, creating jobs and economic growth, and has pledged to fight for farmers to restore economic prosperity back to Georgia. 

“Given his demonstrated commitment to his country and community and his desire to preserve the American dream for future generations, I’m confident he will be a strong advocate for our Tea Party principles in Washington, D.C.  Jeremy Hunt is a solid conservative who will bring honor and integrity to Congress, and we are pleased to give him our full endorsement,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

“Jeremy Hunt is the strongest leader, motivator, and captivating candidate I have met in my 20+ years in both local and federal politics.  I have worked with mayoral campaigns as well as Presidential campaigns, and I have never been so impressed with a candidate.  Jeremy’s strong family ties to Georgia as a 6th generation Georgian, exceptional academic and military achievements having graduated from West Point (serving at Ft Benning and Ukraine), and his devotion to his family are the reasons I give Jeremy the highest possible endorsement.” –Jennings Palmer Chester – Columbus, GA

“The first time I met Jeremy, someone asked him why they should vote for him.  He said, “Because I can beat Sanford Bishop!” The way he said it intrigued me so I started doing research on my own. I found out he graduated West Point with Honors.  As a child growing up in military life, I knew what JUST getting into West Point meant…, and that he graduated with Honors pretty much hooked me.  But to find out he had been to the Ukraine and watch how well the Ukrainians were doing in real time against the Russians was poignant for me. I like the fighter in him. He and Ky are working so hard traveling and meeting voters.  I don’t know how he keeps up that pace. He’ll work hard for us. You can tell he’s worked hard his whole life.” –  Brenda Jolly – Cairo, GA

“Jeremy sees the agricultural needs, infrastructure needs, and most importantly the core family values that are needed to advance our district.  He has the knowledge to make decisions that will move us forward.” – Marlys Fewell – Bainbridge, GA
