Tea Party Express Endorses Dino Rossi for U.S. Congress in Washington
Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of State Senator Dino Rossi to replace retiring Congressman Dave Reichert in Washington’s Eighth Congressional District.
Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “For far too long, the political establishment inside the Beltway has strangled the political process and obstructed meaningful attempts to reduce the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government. President Trump and conservatives in Congress have achieved several big victories, but much more work is needed to beat back the entrenched special interests and make Washington, DC work for the American people again. That’s why we are excited to endorse Dino Rossi, a conservative leader with a proven record of bringing people together to solve the difficult problems.
“Dino Rossi is a third generation Washingtonian who understands the values of hard work, fiscal responsibility, and public service. He worked his way through college in various jobs, including in construction and as a janitor and graduated from Seattle University with a degree in Business. He went on to a successful career in commercial real estate and was later elected to the Washington State Senate. As Chairman of the Senate’s Ways and Means Committee, Dino brought Republicans and Democrats together to enact a balanced budget that erased the state’s massive deficit without raising taxes. He is also very active in the community and under his chairmanship of the board of Special Olympics Washington, the city of Seattle was awarded the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games.
“In Congress, Dino will work to make the middle-class tax cuts permanent, enact a budget that reduces the deficit, and create policies that produce well-paying American jobs. He is exactly the kind of leader we need standing with our Tea Party members of Congress as they fight the intransigent political establishment to fulfill the vision of limited government that our Founding Fathers envisioned,” Russo concluded.
The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:
“Dino Rossi has my full support in his run for Congress. He will represent well the constituents of the 8th District. He is a family man who understands the issues of the community and as a State Senator showed his ability and willingness to work on both fiscal issues as well as social issues.”

“Dino will be a great addition to Congress and will work hard to keep the economy growing. He has proven he is a fiscally responsible conservative and will stand firm on his desire to curve government spending and balance the budget. Dino is a caring, compassionate man of the people who will serve with integrity and stand strong for the people of his district in D.C.”
