Tea Party Express Endorses Owen Hill for U.S. Congress in Colorado

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of State Senator Owen Hill for U.S. House in Colorado’s Fifth Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We are excited to endorse State Senator, Air Force veteran, and small business owner Owen Hill, whose conservative values and record of defending liberty will be a welcome addition to the House of Representatives. We are also proud to stand with our Tea Party Senator Rand Paul who, in endorsing Hill, appropriately calls him ‘a true constitutional conservative.’

As a State Senator, Owen has led the fight against unnecessary new laws, regulations, and red tape as well as championed pro-freedom initiatives to return power back to the hands of Coloradans where it belongs. He understands that unleashing the power of individuals and free markets by limiting government’s size and power is the surest way to promote economic growth and safeguard liberty. Whether it is a simplified tax code, free market healthcare solutions, or local control over education, Owen will fight to expand opportunity and freedom for Coloradans and, indeed, all Americans.

“Too many Republicans in Washington would rather ‘go along to get along’ with the Democrats than enact the bold conservative agenda that the voters who elected them demand. We cannot hope to maintain, much less grow, our conservative majority in the House unless we get behind candidates who offer a dynamic conservative message and are willing to stand up to the establishment. The Democrats are counting on a ‘blue wave’ this November, but what they cannot counter are staunch Tea Party candidates like Owen Hill who stand in sharp contrast to their big government, anti-freedom agenda, and can generate grassroots enthusiasm,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

“Senator Owen Hill is committed to draining the swamp in D.C. He has a servant’s heart and cares about our community. He is the conservative leader we need, and I know he is the right man for the job. – Sarie Joubert, Grassroots Tea Party Activist

“I believe Owen Hill is the best choice to be our next congressman. As a State Senator, he has shown the courage to take the tough stands in defense of the taxpayer. When some compromise in votes like on the omnibus, I know Owen has the fortitude to do what’s right.” – Tony Gioia, Colorado Grassroots Tea Party Activist

“Owen Hill is a man of character. He is a family man with deep roots in his community. In an age when our elected officials in D.C. have lost touch with their local communities, the Owen Hill I know is dedicated to his community and his constituents.” – Chelsey Kesson, Grassroots Tea Party Activist

I’ve known Owen for a long time. I support him because he is the best, most conservative candidate. He’s the kind of leader that grassroots conservatives like me are eager to support.” – Isaiah Hess, Grassroots Tea Party Activist

“Owen votes based on his conservative principles rather than trying to curry favor with party leaders. He IS a leader. Coloradans in our area are hungry for real leadership in the House of Representatives, and they’re finding that leader in Owen Hill.” – Joe Woyte, Grassroots Tea Party Activist
