Tea Party Express Endorses Dave Brat

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, proudly endorses Dave Brat in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District.

 Tea Party Express’ Executive Director Taylor Budowich said, “Dave Brat’s primary victory will be remembered as one of the biggest grassroots Tea Party-fueled upsets ever. Through a bold vision built on conservative ideas, Dave Brat has galvanized voters to believe in his message of limited government and fiscal responsibility.

 “Every second, America sets a new record for national debt,” Budowich said. “We need leaders like Dave Brat to go to Washington, D.C. and rein in the reckless spending and grow our economy. It’s time for America to kick these failed Keynesian ideas of “spending our way to prosperity” to the curb and support pro-growth policies to restore economic prosperity.

 “Dave Brat has proven through his career as a sought-after economist that he understands the economy and how to manage a federal budget. He is committed to getting our fiscal house in order, and will fight to reduce erroneous regulations and red tape that is strangling our economy. We are proud to endorse Dave Brat and encourage voters of Virginia’s 7th Congressional District to get out and cast their ballot on his behalf,” Budowich concluded.

 Comments for local Tea Party leaders:

 “As a small business owner in VA, I put my full support behind David Brat. I have heard him speak on several interviews on XM radio, and feel he holds the view of the people of Virginia in high regard. His answers to questions concerning current political and social actions being forced on the people seem to fall along the Constitution and not with the current administration.  I believe he will bring a fresh face to the Republican Party and hope to help him to win the office.”

“Dave Brat is our candidate for conservative values in Virginia. Once Dave is in office, he will work to defund the Obamacare law and replace it with free-market solutions, lowering costs while improving quality and increasing access to care for patients of all economic backgrounds. As a financial expert with insights into America’s and Virginia’s current economic issues, Dave supports a balanced budget amendment, in essence to force Congress to rein in out-of-control federal spending. Dave Brat has well earned our endorsement as the best candidate for our 7th District and statewide elections.”

“On June 10th of this year Dave Brat’s primary victory shocked our nation as principle and faith defeated money and power. We have a great opportunity before us to make national news again with a resounding Dave Brat victory on November 4th!”

Dewey McConnell, Activist, Virginia


“Dave Brat is the kind of leader that our country needs to preserve our freedom and to restore us to being a nation of prosperity. He will help to once again make America a great nation and a “City On A Hill.”
