Tea Party Express Endorses Matt Rosendale for U.S. Senate

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Montana State Auditor Matt Rosendale in the race for United States Senate in Montana.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “The big government agenda being pushed by Washington insiders is hurting the hard-working people of Montana. Matt Rosendale is exactly the candidate who will stand up for Montanans to take control of their own lives and get Washington off their backs.

“Liberal Democrats like incumbent Senator Jon Tester continue to block President Trump’s Make America Great Again agenda. While he tries to sound like a Montana populist at home, he consistently votes for the liberal agenda in Washington. Voters will not continue to be fooled by Tester, and Matt Rosendale is the kind of candidate to expose Tester’s liberal record.

“In last year’s campaign, the American people were promised tax reform, the repeal of Obamacare, and improved infrastructure. They are sick and tired of these promises being broken by unprincipled insiders more concerned with politics than governing by conservative principles. Senate conservatives need reinforcements, and Matt Rosendale will be just the help they need to break through the obstructionism.

“Matt’s successful track record of cutting spending as a member of the Montana House of Representatives and slashing regulations as State Auditor is the breath of fresh air needed in the Senate. A successful small businessman and rancher, Matt understands how government bureaucracy is stifling economic growth and hurting working people. It will take principled conservative outsiders like Matt Rosendale to drain the swamp and get Washington working for the American people again,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

“Matt Rosendale is comfortable in the business world or out on the ranch mending fences. I’ve never known him to do anything but be willing to fight to get things done. Matt is by far the strongest candidate in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate. He has demonstrated his ability to win a state wide race and has a grassroots network built up across the entire state. No other candidate can say the same. Matt Rosedale is a good man and has proven to be a true conservative leader who will go to D.C. and fight the status quo and help pass any ‘America First’ agenda items of President Trump.”
-Lonnie Bergstrom, Lewistown Tea Party and Montana Grassroots Activist

“I have known Matt Rosendale for a number of years, and when he was Senate Majority Leader in Helena, I found him to be one of the few politicians that moved forward on the things he campaigned on. If a bill went before the Legislature that went against the U.S. Constitution or Montana Constitution, Matt always voted ‘no.’ Matt believes in President Trump and what he is trying to accomplish for America. Another thing I really like about Matt Rosendale is that he will stand his ground and he will not be intimidated or swayed. Matt will always stand firm on his principles.”
-Joan Carroll, Montana Grassroots and Tea Party Activist

“Matt is a good man, and I served with him for several years in the state legislature. He is a straight shooter, and he will do us right in D.C. Matt has my full support to be the next Senator from Montana.”
-Champ Edmunds, former Montana State Legislator

“Matt Rosendale is the solid conservative needed in Montana to make a difference for the people who would benefit from solid conservative leadership.”
