Tea Party Express Endorses Brian Fitzpatrick, Scott Perry, and Keith Rothfus for U.S. Congress in Pennsylvania

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of the following conservative Congressmen in Pennsylvania: Brian Fitzpatrick in the 1st District, Scott Perry in the 10th District, and Keith Rothfus in the 17th District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “In 2016, Pennsylvania voters made it clear that they were sick and tired of business as usual in Washington by electing President Trump. The President and conservatives in Congress have made incredible progress toward restoring economic prosperity and reducing the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government. Voters can build on that momentum in November by reelecting Congressmen like Brian Fitzpatrick, Scott Perry, and Keith Rothfus who have made changing the culture in Washington a priority.

1st District: “Levittown native Brian Fitzpatrick is committed to fixing a broken Washington. On his very first day in office, he put forth a bold government reform plan that challenged the career politicians in Washington: term limits for Members of Congress, pass a budget or don’t get paid, and balance the budget. Prior to his election to Congress, Congressman Fitzpatrick had a long and distinguished career in law enforcement in which he served as National Director of the FBI’s Campaign Finance and Election Crimes Enforcement Program and was the Special Assistant U.S. Attorney prosecuting violent gun and drug offenders. He has been nationally recognized for his efforts to uphold the rule of law, fight terrorism, and combat the opioid crisis.

10th District: “Businessman, soldier, and public servant Scott Perry has dedicated his life to serving the people of Pennsylvania. For more than 35 years, he has served in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard in which he served in combat in Iraq and eventually attained the rank of Brigadier General. He is also a successful businessman and the founder of Hydrotech Mechanical Services. In Congress, Congressman Perry has fought to block excessive government regulations that make it harder for small businesses to grow and has supported countless bills to cut federal spending and balance our budget.

17th District: “Keith Rothfus is a political outsider who entered public service because he was tired of standing on the sidelines while politicians in Washington make decisions that punish job creators and entrepreneurs while saddling the nation with trillions of dollars in debt. A longtime corporate attorney, he helped businesses of all sizes expand and create jobs in Western Pennsylvania, giving him intimate knowledge of how government stifles economic growth. As Vice Chair of the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit, Congressman Rothfus has fought for policies that promote economic growth and job creation and supported President Trump’s successful tax cuts and regulatory reform.

“President Trump and conservatives keep winning, but the establishment still doesn’t get it. The voters have demanded an end to out-of-control spending, the repeal of Obamacare, and a reining in of the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government, but the establishment and its liberal allies continue to stand in our way. Our best hope is to send more conservative fighters like Brian Fitzpatrick, Scott Perry, and Keith Rothfus to Washington to continue draining the swamp,” Russo concluded.
