Tea Party Express Endorsing Jon Bruning for Senate at Press Conference Today

The Tea Party Express will hold a press conference today to endorse Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning for Senate, in the group’s first endorsement for 2012.

The Tea Party Express announced months ago that liberal Senator Ben Nelson was a top target for defeat, citing his removal as a critical first step in taking back the U.S. Senate for conservatives.

“We at the Tea Party Express have been watching and waiting for the right candidate to send Ben Nelson home to retirement. Jon Bruning is a true conservative who will fight to uphold the tea party core values of fiscal responsibility, and finally give Nebraskans the quality of representation they deserve. We are thrilled to endorse Jon Bruning, and are confident he will be the next senator of Nebraska.” said Amy Kremer, Chair of Tea Party Express.

Members of the media and tea party supporters are welcome to attend the press conference, where Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning will be available for comments and interviews.

WHEN: Wednesday May 11th, 9AM
WHERE: National Press Club, Washington DC
