ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Yesli Vega in Virginia’s Seventh Congressional District

For Immediate Release: September 22, 2022

Sacramento, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Yesli Vega in Virginia’s Seventh Congressional District.  

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Yesli Vega is a rock-solid conservative with deeply ingrained values that allow her to advocate for conservative principles such as fiscal responsibility and a limited government with boldness and confidence. 

“The daughter of two Salvadoran immigrants who fled during their civil war, Yesli grew up knowing firsthand the opportunities and freedoms available in America to those in pursuit of the American dream.  Her commitment to maintaining liberty in the United States was further strengthened while she accompanied her husband on his U.S. Army deployment to Korea, where she saw the vast contrast between the freedom in the South and the horrendous conditions in communist North Korea.

“As a law enforcement officer, Yesli Vega has dedicated her career to protecting her local community from harm.  She started off as a street officer and moved up to be a certified hostage negotiator.  She currently still serves as an Auxiliary Deputy in the Prince William Sheriff’s Office.

“In addition to her career in law enforcement, Yesli was elected to serve on the Prince William County Board of Supervisors where she advocated for lower property taxes and increased government transparency and efficiency.  She was elected in an upset election in a Democratic seat because of her strong support for law enforcement and her connection with the blue-collar voters, much the same as the Seventh Congressional District.

“And now, Yesli is running for Congress to restore fiscal sanity and fight back against the ever-increasing government overreach into the personal lives of Virginians by out-of-touch political bureaucrats. Her strong commitment to maintaining freedom and liberty for all Americans will make her a substantial improvement over the current incumbent who talks like a moderate but votes like a liberal.

“Her opponent has voted with Joe Biden nearly 100 percent of the time, and she promotes a radical tax-and-spend agenda Virginians don’t want.  While Democrats hope to clear the path to victory through the Seventh District of Virginia, the recent red wave in Virginia proves just how much the people in the Commonwealth are fed up with tax hikes and the radical spending sprees of Democrats. 

“The voters in the Seventh Congressional District of the Commonwealth will be well-served by Yesli Vega, and I have no doubt she’ll be a fierce fighter to reduce the size and scope of government, stop massive tax hikes, bring back fiscal sanity, and restore American prosperity, and we are thrilled to endorse her campaign,” Russo concluded.
