For Immediate Release: June 7, 2022

Sacramento, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Alex Mooney in West Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District.

U.S. Rep. to West Virginia, Alex Mooney

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Alex Mooney is a proven conservative leader who is not afraid to challenge the status-quo politicians destroying our nation. President Trump has enthusiastically endorsed his campaign, and local West Virginia leaders have rallied and unified behind Alex Mooney to ensure West Virginia continues to have a fierce advocate for coal miners and their families. We have strongly supported Alex since he began his first campaign in 2014, and he has lived up to his reputation as a conscientious conservative who will stand up for the people of West Virginia.

“While Biden wants to arm radical environmentalists with more power and control over businesses in West Virginia, Congressman Mooney has fought back against the job killing agenda of the EPA. Because of Alex Mooney’s fierce leadership in fighting back both the Obama and Biden Administrations’ efforts to destroy coal mining, he’s preserved coal industry operations and saved countless jobs by stopping oppressive regulations from destroying West Virginia’s economy.

“With surging fuel prices at the pump and Biden’s push for Americans to depend on hostile countries to meet our energy needs, now more than ever we need bold conservatives like Alex Mooney who are committed to energy independence to make America self-reliant once again. With the expansion of the natural gas industry in the state, West Virginia can be part of America’s energy solutions if Washington can be stopped from over burdening these crucial industries.

“As the son of a Cuban refuge, Alex Mooney learned at a young age how important it is to fight to preserve the cherished freedoms Americans hold dear – where personal liberty can flourish and oppressive liberal regimes can be stopped by the power of the American voters. His own mother was thrown into prison for protesting against the Communist regime in Cuba so he knows first-hand the importance of standing up for the principles of freedom.

Congressman Mooney has demonstrated he has what it takes to get things done without compromising on his conservative principles. I’m confident he’ll continue to champion our Tea Party principles of reducing government intervention, reining in out-of-control spending, and restoring American prosperity, and we are thrilled to again offer our endorsement to Alex Mooney for re-election to Congress,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

“As the Representative of West Virginia’s Second Congressional District, Congressman Mooney has a 100% Pro- Life voting Record. He voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born Alive Abortions Survivors Protection Act. He voted against using your tax dollars to pay for abortions, and voter to defund

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. He opposes Obamacare and voted to repeal it. Most recently, he voted against the Build Back Better Act. We commend Alex Mooney for his commitment to the pro- life cause.” – Carter M. Heller, PAC WV

“WVCDL proudly endorses Congressman Alex Mooney. His voting record on the right to keep and bear arms is stellar and he is passionate on the issue. – Ian Masters, WV Citizens Defense League President

“Congressman Alex Mooney, has done a great job representing West Virginia and is someone I respect and can support wholeheartedly. Alex Mooney is a true constitutional conservative who stands on principle. He has a conservative voting record, is staunchly pro-life, stands for border security, stands up for our gun rights and stands against federal overreach. When it comes to fiscal issues, he votes to reign in government spending, votes against legislation that adds to our runaway federal debt disaster and is a proponent of sound money. West Virginia needs to send Alex Mooney back to Washington to represent us. He is a true conservative and a true patriot.” – Patricia Rucker, WV State Senator 16th District
