Tea Party Endorses Senator John McCain for Re-Election

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, has expressed its support for Senator John McCain for re-election as Senator from the State of Arizona.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Senator John McCain is an important voice and leader on issues involving national security and defense, and has been a stalwart conservative fighting to reduce the size and cost of government in Washington.

“Republicans, Conservatives and the Tea Party all need John McCain in the Senate. He has become a leading voice for keeping America strong in the world and following the Reagan philosophy of ‘peace through strength. His foresight in recommending the Iraqi surge was a critical component of our success, a success that President Obama has frittered away.

“I have known John McCain for over 40 years. He has always been a leading advocate for a core Tea Party goal: reducing the size and intrusiveness of the federal government. He has never wavered in his opposition to the out-of-control spending that has pushed our country to an unsustainable national debt. We need this leadership to continue,” Russo concluded.
