Tea Party Express Endorses Karen Handel for Congress in GA-06

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is proud to endorse Karen Handel for Congress in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District.

Tea Party Express’ Executive Director Taylor Budowich said, “It is clear by Karen Handel’s commanding victory over her Republican opponents that the primary process worked and the strongest candidate has emerged. That’s why Tea Party Express is proud to support her campaign and we call on conservatives throughout Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, along with grassroots activists from across the country to join us in uniting behind her campaign!

“Tea Party Express previously had endorsed Karen for her U.S. Senate campaign in 2014. We were convinced then, as we are now, that she will bring experienced, conservative leadership to Washington, D.C. When Karen was elected as the Chairman of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, she faced a budget deficit of $100 million. She not only balanced the budget, but she did so with thoughtful spending cuts – not the lazy D.C. approach of raising taxes, which shrink the economy. Karen brought that same conservative approach to her tenure as Secretary of State, where she reduced her department’s budget by 20%, increased transparency and improved service

“However, even with the Democrat’s failed referendum on President Trump last night, it’s clear they will continue this shadow campaign to prop up a clearly unqualified candidate. Jon Ossoff and the dark money being funnelled his way is exactly the kind of Clinton-esque politics voters in Georgia’s 6th District rejected in 2016. And like we did to Secretary Clinton last year, it’s time to pull back the curtain and reveal Ossoff for the out-of-touch liberal that he is,” Budowich concluded.
