Walker Victory Shows Tea Party’s Strength

Waukesha, WI – Tea Party Express congratulates Governor Scott Walker and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch on an outstanding victory in Wisconsin’s historic Gubernatorial recall election.

Amy Kremer, Chairman of Tea Party Express said, “The victories just keep rolling in, and the victory tonight over these frivolous recalls emphasize the Tea Party tidal wave that is sweeping across our nation. Governor Walker’s and Lieutenant Governor Kleefisch’s policies embody the foundational principles of the tea party.

“This victory tonight truly speaks to the strength of the Tea Party movement. Since entering the recall battle last summer, Tea Party Express has served as the aggregate voice of millions of tea partiers across the country. Our nearly year-long campaign has included 2 statewide bus tours, 15 rallies, state and national advertising campaigns, and over 20 million emails sent nationwide in the past month alone.

“This recall garnered national attention because of the similarities to the Presidential election – it was a battle between conservatives policies that successfully balanced the budget and encouraged economic growth, and the big government policies found under the Obama administration. Tonight we sent a message that should shake Obama’s Chicago headquarters: tea party momentum is going to be coming strong and mercilessly in November,” Kremer concluded.
