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 Jen Kiggans in Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District.  

Jen Kiggans, Congressional Candidate

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Jen Kiggans is an accomplished Virginia State Senator and American patriot who has served our country both at home and abroad, and she’s committed to continuing the fight in the halls of Congress to advocate for a strong national defense and turn around our declining economy.

“During her time in the U.S. Navy, Jen deployed twice to the Persian Gulf as a helicopter pilot.  With only 91 members of Congress having ever served in the military, it’s crucial we elect veterans like Jen who can advocate for the needs of our brave men and women who have served our nation with honor and understand a strong military has strategic benefits in the defense of our nation.

“In addition to her current career as a geriatric nurse practitioner, Jen represents Virginia as a State Senator where she has fought tirelessly against the wasteful spending bills flooding out of Richmond.  She has the experience to hit the ground running in Congress.

“And now Jen is ready to push back against the job-killing agenda being rammed through by liberals like Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  While Jen’s liberal opponent Elaine Luria votes with President Joe Biden and Pelosi nearly 100 percent of the time, Jen is committed to cut wasteful spending and reduce regulations so small businesses can thrive and create jobs.

“Democrats have targeted the 2nd District of Virginia and hope to continue pushing through their radical agenda and keep control of the House, but the voters in the Commonwealth are tired of the failed promises of Washington, D.C. politicians that only hurt Virginia families.  Luria has become part of the problem in Washington, and Jen Kiggans is part of the solution.

“With skyrocketing prices at the pump and record-high inflation, it’s clear politicians in Washington, D.C. aren’t doing their job, and it’s time to send in a new leader from the 2nd District who will fight back against the tax-and-spend policies that are bankrupting our nation. 

“I’m confident Jen Kiggans will champion our Tea Party principles to reduce massive tax increases, limit the size of government, and rein in reckless spending, and we are pleased to endorse her campaign,” Russo concluded.
