Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Eli Crane is a true American patriot who has bravely served our nation by deploying five times to hostile countries during war – including three times to the Middle East with SEAL Team 3.  He’s committed to protecting the American values we hold near and dear both at home and abroad, and we are pleased to endorse his campaign. 

“With currently only 91 Members of Congress having ever served in the military, we need the experience and leadership of patriots like Eli Crane who understand the serious threats we face around the globe and who will advocate for our veterans who dedicated their lives to serve our country.

“As a combat veteran, Eli has never forgotten the sacrifices fellow servicemembers have made to protect the sovereignty of our nation.  He even started a small business that employs and gives back to veterans across the country. 

“In fact, as a small business owner, Eli knows firsthand the challenges business owners face as they are forced to navigate through burdensome regulations and crushing tax increases just to make ends meet.  And thanks to liberals like President Joe Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, our national debt continues to soar while tax-and-spend liberals keep kicking the can down the road to future generations, saddling them with a debt they won’t be able to repay without damaging the economy.  

“The truth is, in addition to our exploding national debt, America is experiencing record-high inflation and surging prices at the gas pump, at the grocery store, and throughout the economy, and we need to elect fiscal conservatives like Eli Crane to hold Washington, D.C. politicians accountable and force them to stop recklessly spending taxpayers’ dollars on their frivolous pet projects.

Eli knows the importance of true fiscal reform, which includes cutting taxes and advocating for pro-growth policies.  I’m confident Eli Crane will champion our Tea Party principles of slashing taxes, reducing the size of government, and restoring America back to its founding principles, and we are pleased to give him our full endorsement,” Russo concluded.
