Tea Party Express Endorses Tom Emmer for U.S. Congress in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is proud to announce its endorsement of Tom Emmer for the 6th Congressional district in Minnesota.

Tea Party Express Executive Director Taylor Budowich said, “Tom Emmer is exactly the type of constitutional conservative we need in Washington, D.C. He’s a hard charging conservative who will never waver. We are confident that Tom will carry on the legacy of tea party stalwart, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, and continue her fight to reign in the Obama administration’s big government liberal agenda.

“Tom has made it clear that his guiding light is the Constitution, and he will do everything in his power to preserve, defend and protect it. Tom will always stand strong on principle and will be the last person to back down in the face of pressure from the establishment in both parties. His knees will never buckle in the fight to end reckless spending and restore economic growth.

“If we want to change the policies coming out of Congress, then it’s crucial that we elect politicians that will buck the go-along-to-get-along culture, and Tom Emmer is someone we can count on to represent “We The People” in Congress. Tea Party Express is proud to endorse Tom Emmer for Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District,” Budowich concluded.

Comments from local Grassroots leaders:

“I’ve been a supporter of Tom’s since 2010 and was excited to support him again. His views on major issues that affect the 6th District, Minnesota and the United States are spot on. And he hasn’t changed those views throughout any of these races. That is why others support him- he has stuck with his message of economic freedom and opportunity for all.”- Lawrence Johnson of the Central MN Tea Party

“When others didn’t care about the Tea Party, Tom was there for us and I know he will continue to be there for us in Congress. The task ahead is honoring the constitution and representing the people, while not getting pulled in to the D.C. machine. Tom is up to that task.”- Jack Rogers of the North Metro Tea Party

“Tea Party Patriots believe in personal freedom and economic freedom, and a debt free future. We want people to pursue their American dream. Tea party people support Tom because he also holds those beliefs.”- Mary Amlaw of the Liberty Tea Party Patriots

“Having been politically active since 2009 I have encountered lots of people running for office. There have been a few I have been 100% confident would hold the same values I hold as a tea party activist. Tom Emmer is one of those few. So often we find ourselves holding our nose and voting for the lesser of two evils. With Tom Emmer, that is not the case. I am looking forward to voting for Tom in November.” -Walter Hudson, local Tea Party activist
