Tea Party Express Endorses Dan Donovan for U.S. Congress in New York

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Dan Donovan for Congress in New York’s Eleventh Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Today, we are pleased to join President Trump in endorsing Congressman Dan Donovan. We need him in Congress fighting for real reforms that put Americans back to work, rein in the out-of-control national debt, and reduce the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government. Throughout his career in public service, primarily as a prosecutor, Congressman Donovan has demonstrated an impeccable commitment to solving problems and serving his community.

“A native Staten Islander who grew up in a blue-collar household, Dan Donovan understands the struggles that hardworking American families face every day, and he knows the value of hard work. He put himself through both college and law school before beginning his career in the New York County District Attorney’s office. In 2003, he was elected District Attorney of Richmond County, and during his three terms in office, he helped make Staten Island one of the safest communities in America. In Congress, Dan successfully fought Barack Obama’s efforts to cut homeland security funding, ensuring that New York City has the resources it needs to protect itself from the threat of terrorism and 9/11 first responders get the healthcare they deserve.

“The Eleventh District deserves a member of Congress who fights for the things that matter most to them, not the agenda of the radical liberal elites who are prepared to spend millions of dollars to try and defeat Dan Donovan. The Democrats’ hatred of President Trump has so blinded them to the concerns of the everyday people they claim to represent that they are disguising themselves as moderates just to win back Congressional seats and stop the President’s successful conservative agenda. It is critical that we stand behind members of Congress like Dan Donovan who are a bulwark against the radical Left’s desire to take us back to the stagnation and failed economic policies of the Obama era,” Russo concluded.
