For Immediate Release: August 5, 2022

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

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Tyler Kistner was born and raised in Minnesota, and after bravely serving his country in the United States Marine Corps for nine years, he returned to Minnesota to put down roots and raise his family.

Tyler came close to winning this seat in the last election, but he was foiled by the incumbent Democrat who paraded as a moderate, but then ended up voting the straight liberal line in Washington, D.C. in favor of the failed policies of President Joe Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi. 


“While his opponent turned a blind eye, Tyler witnessed the left’s commitment to ‘woke’ leftist ideas and the chaos they brought to our classrooms, along with the disrespect to our faithful police officers who put their lives on the line every day. He has listened to small business owners and farmers in the district who believe they can enhance economic growth if the politicians stop imposing more taxes and burdensome regulations.

“During his time of active service in the Marine Corps, Tyler served the majority of his tour in the elite Marine Special Operations forces known as the Marine Raiders.  He served four overseas tours and managed programs with more than $100 million in budget and assets.

“With only 91 current Members of Congress having served in the military during some point in their lives, having seasoned Marines like Tyler will be an asset to Congress, as his experience in counterterrorism will help Washington, D.C. politicians set policies that will keep America safe from those who wish to do us harm. 

“Like most Minnesotans, Tyler has had enough of the failed policies of liberals in Washington, D.C. who steal from future generations to push through their radical tax-and-spend bills.  Tyler is committed to fighting on behalf of all Minnesotans, including future generations, so they too can enjoy the freedoms we cherish today instead of being saddled down with financial debt they can never repay. 

“I’m confident Tyler is the right choice to champion our Tea Party principles in Congress to stop massive tax hikes, restore fiscal sanity, and champion the personal freedoms of all Minnesotans, and we are pleased to give Tyler Kistner our endorsement,” Russo concluded.
