Tea Party Express Endorses Michael Cloud for U.S. Congress in Texas

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Michael Cloud for U.S. House in Texas’ Twenty Seventh Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “When the voters sent Donald Trump to the White House, they made it clear that they were fed up with the Washington establishment and wanted an outsider to tackle the problems they refuse to solve. That’s why Tea Party Express is excited to endorse Michael Cloud, a courageous conservative outsider who will join with President Trump and Tea Party conservatives in Congress to take on the political insiders and entrenched special interests. He has been able to rally conservatives throughout the district to his campaign, and we are proud to join in supporting this strong conservative.

“Michael Cloud is a fighter who has spent more than a decade in the trenches fighting for conservative values. As Chair of the Victoria County Republican Party, he led the successful fight to turn the county red and helped elect conservatives to local offices. In Congress, Michael will be a powerful voice for slashing wasteful spending, reducing our mounting debt, simplifying the tax code, and restoring power to the state and local levels where it belongs.

“Although President Trump and Congressional conservatives in the House have made considerable progress in lowering taxes and slashing burdensome federal regulations, the fact remains that the federal government is too large, is too intrusive, and consumes far too much of our hard-earned money. The Washington establishment is more interested in cruising the D.C. cocktail circuit and placating special interest lobbyists than pursuing meaningful fiscal reforms. It will take principled leadership from outsiders like Michael Cloud to break the culture of corruption and restore the limited, constitutional government that our Founding Fathers bequeathed to us,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

“I fully support Michael Cloud. He is a true grassroots conservative candidate. Michael worked hard as a volunteer and political activist in many organizations from Young Republicans to the Tea Party and many others. Michael is a hard worker and upholds the Constitution. He is the best candidate to represent the people in the 27th district.” – Suzanne Guggenheim, Tea Party Organizer, Grassroots Political Activist, GOP Precinct Chair

“Michael Cloud has my full endorsement and support for Congress in Texas CD27. All of Mr. Cloud’s involvement in politics has been at the grassroots and volunteer level. He started the Young Republicans of Victoria, became County Chair, and turned the county red. Michael Cloud is a man of integrity who will uphold conservative values and his oath to the Constitution.” – Carmen Calderone, Grassroots Political Activist and GOP County Chair

“During Hurricane Harvey, Michael Cloud was in the community helping those in need. Handing out water, helping evacuate, helping recovery. That’s what he does, that’s who he is. A man of the people. A pillar of a grassroots community leader. Michael Cloud will represent the people of the 27th district, and he has my full support.” – David Weller, Grassroots Activist and Bastrop County Precinct Chair

“President Trump needs our help in his efforts to ‘drain the swamp.’ And, we can help by voting for Michael Cloud to represent Congressional District 27! He is a true conservative that will bring fresh ideas to Congress while supporting President Trump’s efforts to ‘Make American Great Again.’ Michael Cloud is an individual that possess those leadership attributes needed in Washington today. He’s a man of principle and a man of integrity – one who understands the needs of our community and one that will take action as appropriate. Michael Cloud has my support and my vote.” – James E. Freytag, B/Gen, USAF (Ret.)
