ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Anna Paulina Luna in Florida’s 13th Congressional District

For Immediate Release: September 16, 2022

Sacramento, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Anna Paulina Luna in Florida’s 13th Congressional District.  

Tea Party Express National Grassroots Director, Kay Rivoli, Anna Paulina Luna, Congressional Candidate, and Tea Party Express Chief Strategist, Sal Russo

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Now that the primary has concluded and Florida voters have spoken, it’s crucial we rally and unify behind Anna Paulina Luna to help elect her as the next Congresswoman from Florida.  Not only does Anna have a strong grassroots base, she’s earned the coveted endorsement of former President Donald Trump, along with a host of other conservative leaders. 

“If Democrats get their way, Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s reign of fiscal terror will continue, and the harmful tax-and-spend policies being forced upon Florida taxpayers by liberals in Congress will continue to crush the economic freedom Floridians have long enjoyed.  Not only have these liberals never found a tax they didn’t like, they support every burdensome regulation that slows down our economy and the job creation we need.

Anna’s greatest quality is her grit. Having been raised by a single mother, she learned at an early age the hard work needed to break free from the shackles of government control.  Having grown up in poverty in a crime-ridden area, Anna was determined to do whatever it took to get out, and she decided to serve her country by joining the United States Air Force.

“It was in the Air Force her passion and talent to help others was sharpened, and she went on to continue to advocate for veterans and speak out on behalf of victims of human and child trafficking to help stop the crisis that continues to get worse thanks to our open southern border.  Her servant leadership approach will be an asset to Congress in helping shape fiscal policies that will give Americans the opportunity to obtain the American dream without government control. 

“Democrats think they own Florida and the Hispanic vote with their liberal open border policies, but Anna Paulina Luna has proved them wrong.  She’s committed to stop illegal immigration and wants to ensure those who wish to embrace our American principles do so the legal way.  She intends to hold politicians in Washington, D.C. accountable for their destructive border policies as well as their out-of-control spending.

“I’m confident Anna Paulina Luna will hold true to her conservative values and fight for the people of Florida.  Tea Party Express is proud to offer our endorsement to Anna Paulina Luna, and we are confident she’ll champion our Tea Party principles to reduce the size of government, stop fiscal irresponsibility, and promote American prosperity,” Russo concluded.  

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

“I am writing this letter to express my strongest possible acknowledgement, recommendation, and endorsement for Anna Paulina Luna, who is the current leading candidate for U.S. House Rep., Congressional District 13, Florida, where I reside. Anna represents the best of the best Conservative values and character, in all areas. Her integrity, commitment, and strength are beyond reproach. She stands head and shoulders above any other candidate in this race. I have known Anna and her husband Andy, for 5 years. They are both Air Force Veterans and both represent extensive military backgrounds and extensive support for the military, especially regarding their support for Special Operations, although also their strong support for all military. Anna has additionally acquired more Conservative endorsements than probably even Ronald Reagan could get, all from those of whom I have the highest respect. Her endorsements include, the House Freedom Caucus, Jim Jordan, Gun Owners of America, and many others, not to mention Pres. Trump. I have been Assistant Organizer in our local Tea Party organization and in multiple other local Conservative organizations since the inception of the Tea Party and before. Anna absolutely supports those values and policies without question, and more importantly, she will vote in Congress for those policies, even when facing opposition. I strongly encourage all to endorse and vote for Anna Paulina Luna for U.S. House Rep. Congressional District 13, Florida.” – Pete M. Franco, U.S. Army Officer (retired)

“Government is infringing on our liberties like never before. That’s why we need strong leaders like Anna Paulina Luna who will fight back against corruption, stand on principle and defend our Constitutional rights. That is why we proudly endorse Anna Paulina Luna for Congress in FL-13.” – The Republican Liberty Caucus 

“President Trump vetted and then endorsed Anna Paulina Luna” said Happe.  “Since she passed vetting by the best president in recent history, and since President Trump wants Anna Paulina Luna in congress, she has our full support. I’ve seen her fight here locally when the cameras were off for our kids, our values, and our personal sovereignty.  She’s pro God, pro guns, pro-life, and pro America.  She’ll be a member of the Republican Freedom Caucus when she gets to Washington DC, and more importantly she’s a fierce advocate for kids, and against human trafficking.  She shares the values of Tidings Media and she’s the best candidate for the job.” – David Happe, Editor of Tidings Media
