Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Attorney General Eric Schmitt is a conservative powerhouse who has been on the front lines fighting the battle for freedom on behalf of all Missourians, and we are thrilled to endorse his campaign. 

“During the Trump Administration, Eric Schmitt supported Trump’s agenda and led the charge to be a strong voice for conservative values.  Whether it was fighting for election integrity or holding China accountable, Eric Schmitt has proven time and time again he’s not afraid to fight when our personal liberties are under attack.

“With Biden in the White House, Eric has doubled-down even harder and fought back against Biden’s radical job-killing environmental policies like canceling the Keystone XL Pipeline.  Working with Attorneys General across the country, he has been a national leader in preventing the Biden Administration from further hurting our economy and making life miserable for the hard-working citizens of Missouri.

“His commitment to push back against the overreaching mandates and regulations of the liberal elite has earned him the endorsements of conservative legends like U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, Former Trump Attorney General Matt Whitaker, and Former Trump White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.  Other conservative organizations have also rallied around Eric because this is such a crucial U.S. Senate seat to win, including the National Association for Gun Rights, Americans for Prosperity, Senate Conservatives Fund, and so many more. 

Attorney General Eric Schmitt is a true American patriot who understands our Constitution and the rights and freedoms it guarantees every American.  While the radical left stomps all over the freedoms Missourians hold dear, Eric continues to take the fight all the way to the top in an effort to restore America to the ‘shining city on a hill’ it once was.

Eric has vowed to hold politicians accountable, and Missouri needs a proven and battle-tested leader like Eric Schmitt to take his boldness to the halls of Congress and push back on those who disregard the Constitution.  I’m confident Eric will continue to advocate for justice and champion our Tea Party principles to reduce the size and scope of government, bring back fiscal responsibility, and restore American prosperity.  

“We are pleased to offer our full endorsement to Attorney General Eric Schmitt for election to the United States Senate, and look forward to him continuing to fight for liberty in Washington, D.C.,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

Eric Schmitt will not only be an unwavering force against the insanity of the establishment swamp in Washington D.C., but a strong defender of our nation’s constitutional foundation and Mideast family values.” – Vinnie Clubb, Missouri Farm Bureau PAC Vice Chair, Wayne County, Piedmont, Southeast MO

Eric Schmitt is the strongest conservative fighter!” – Mary Hill, Clay Country Conservatives

“It is my honor and personal privilege to serve as chair of the Women’s Coalition for Attorney General Eric Schmitt in his bid for U.S. Senator from Missouri. I am equally honored to serve with a group of outstanding co-chairs, women from around the state who are actively involved in electing and supporting conservative candidates at all levels of government. As a group, we know that there are other qualified and worthy candidates in this race. It was not, however, a difficult decision for us—the decision as to who we support for our next United States Senator. Thus, we asked ourselves these questions. Who is that person who will best lead Missouri through the troubled waters ahead for our country? Who is the person best equipped to fight brutal challenges to our country’s democracy and to our personal freedoms? Who can help protect us and future generations best? We believe it is Eric Schmitt, and I am happy to give him my full endorsement.” – Kay Hoflander, former Missouri Republican Party Chair, Lafayette County

“There is only one candidate in this race with the experience and conservative values needed to take our country back from Joe Biden, and that is Eric Schmitt. Eric Schmitt blocked Biden’s forced vaccine mandate at the Supreme Court, exposed Critical Race Theory in our schools, ended abortion in the state of Missouri, and so much more. This is the winning record that Missouri conservatives need, and I know that in the U.S. Senate, Eric Schmitt will be relentless in fighting for our Republican values.”  – Rene Artman, St. Louis County Chair & Activist
