Tea Party Express Endorses Rep. Steve Southerland for Congress in FL-2

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, proudly endorses Rep. Steve Southerland for Congress in Florida’s 2nd Congressional District.

Tea Party Express’ Executive Director Taylor Budowich said, “Since Congressman Southerland was first elected in 2010, he’s proven to be a bold conservative leader. That’s exactly what we want and need in Congress- strong leadership standing against D.C. power grabs.

“Southerland led the charge against EPA overreach in Florida. Just this year, he introduced the Regulatory Overreach Protection Act, which drew a hard line in the Florida sand against the EPA. Steve has also consistently fought to protect manufacturing in his state to secure jobs for hardworking families. He even earned a prestigious award for his legislative excellence in manufacturing from the nation’s largest industrial trade association.

“Steve stands for his state and fights for his country. We believe he will continue to protect jobs, create economic growth and rail against government intrusion. We are proud to stand with Rep. Southerland and support his continued efforts,” Budowich concluded.
