Tea Party Express Endorses Rep. Andy Barr for Congress in Kentucky

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Rep. Andy Barr for Congress in Kentucky’s Sixth Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “When Andy Barr was running for Congress in 2012, we brought our innovative Mobile Phone Bank to the Sixth District to support him because he supported our Tea Party message of limited government, lower taxes, and economic freedom. We are proud to endorse him again today as he has consistently championed that message in Congress by supporting conservative reforms that are stimulating economic growth and challenging the power of the Washington establishment.

“Throughout his six years in Congress, Andy has consistently voted to reduce the size and scope of the federal government, cut taxes, stop regulatory overreach, and preserve the rights guaranteed to the people in the Constitution. He supported H.R. 3, the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act, which cuts wasteful spending and restores fiscal responsibility, and he voted for the Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

“A native Kentuckian, Andy has demonstrated a tremendous commitment to the citizens of the Sixth District. He has worked to expand economic opportunities by prioritizing Kentucky’s horse racing, coal, bourbon, and auto manufacturing industries, and he spearheaded the Sixth District Drug Abuse Task Force to find solutions to the opioid crisis that is ravaging rural communities. His dedication and experience are the defining points in this race, and we encourage voters in the Sixth District to vote for Andy Barr for Congress on November 6th,” Russo concluded.
