Tea Party Express Endorses Debbie Lesko for U.S. Congress in Arizona

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Congresswoman Debbie Lesko in Arizona’s Eighth Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We are excited to support conservative champion and new House Freedom Caucus member Debbie Lesko. When we decide whether to support a candidate, we look at their record of commitment to the Tea Party principles of limited government, lower taxes, and economic freedom. Debbie Lesko has proven herself to be a principled conservative leader who truly embodies those principles.

“While serving in the State Senate, Debbie successfully fought to reform Arizona’s public safety worker pension plan and ultimately saved it from insolvency. She also worked tirelessly to reform the state’s sales tax system and to expand its Empowerment Scholarship Account program, which has allowed thousands of Arizona students to escape failing public schools. Her experience and record of tackling the critical issues facing hardworking taxpayers are immense assets as she stands with other conservatives in Congress to balance the federal budget, rein in out-of-control spending, and further simplify the tax code.

“The upcoming midterm elections are a choice between the successful policies of President Trump and conservatives in Congress versus the failed liberal policies of yesteryear. Under conservative leadership, economic growth is skyrocketing, working families are keeping more of their hard-earned money, and entrepreneurs are investing in America again. Voters can choose to either continue along the path of prosperity and limited government by electing more conservatives like Debbie Lesko or return to the days of economic stagnation and high taxes that we suffered through under Barack Obama and the Democrats. The choice could not be easier,” Russo concluded.
