Tea Party Express Endorses John Gibbs in Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District

For Immediate Release: October 19, 2022

Sacramento, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of John Gibbs in Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District.  

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “John Gibbs supports an America First Agenda and is committed to restoring America to its founding principles, and we are pleased to endorse his campaign.

“A Michigan native and the first in his family to attend college, John firmly believes through hard work and determination every individual has the same opportunity to achieve the American dream.

John’s experience in both the private and public sectors has given him the wisdom and edge needed to address the problems facing everyday Americans.  Having been appointed by President Trump as Acting Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, John was responsible for managing an $8 billion-dollar annual budget.

“And with Democrats like Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Joe Biden stealing the paychecks of hard-working Americans by forcing them to pay for Pelosi’s pet projects, we need bold leaders like John Gibbs to step in and end the economic turmoil spiraling our nation into oblivion.  The Democratic candidate, Hilary Scholten, is a veteran of the Obama Administration and has staked out liberal positions across the board, including supporting soft-on-crime proposals that would lead to violent offenders being released shortly after committing their crimes.

“John has pledged to return America to its greatest days by ending our record-high inflation and investing in America first policies that promote low taxes and energy independence so America isn’t forced to rely on hostile nations to meet transportation and energy needs. 

“I’m confident John Gibbs will champion our Tea Party principles to stop massive increases, reduce the size of government, and restore America to its founding glory, and we are pleased to give him our full endorsement,” Russo concluded.
