Tea Party Express Endorses Bruce Poliquin for Congress in Maine

For Immediate Release: October 12, 2022

Sacramento, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Bruce Poliquin in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We are pleased to support Bruce Poliquin for Congress because he has a strong work ethic and has pledged to bring common sense solutions back to Washington, D.C.   

“Throughout his career in public service, Bruce has earned the reputation of being above reproach and maintaining strict fiscal integrity.  During his time serving as Maine’s State Treasurer, he stopped elected officials from going on luxurious trips with political insiders on the taxpayer’s dime.  Bruce was also instrumental in pushing for the largest tax cut in Maine’s history and is known for his fiscal restraint and prudence. 

“The voters of Maine previously elected Bruce to serve in Congress, and now, he’s running again to continue fighting for the people in Maine’s 2nd District at a crucial time in our nation.  Now more than ever, we need commonsense leaders like Bruce Poliquin to hold politicians in D.C. accountable for their frivolous spending bills. His Democrat opponent Jared Golden parades around in Maine with an occasional conservative vote, but a closer look at his voting record shows he votes with liberal Speaker Nancy Pelosi 84% of the time.  That’s not representing a district that voted for President Trump in both 2016 and 2020.

“Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Joe Biden are determined to continue ramming through their liberal agenda, regardless of the disastrous impact it has on American households.  And with a record-high inflation and soaring prices at the gas pump, Mainers are feeling the impact of Pelosi’s irresponsible tax-and-spend policies.

“I’m confident Bruce Poliquin will fiercely fight for Mainers once elected and champion our Tea Party principles to stop massive tax hikes, maintain fiscal integrity, and reduce the size and scope of government, and we are pleased to endorse his campaign,” Russo concluded.
