Tea Party Express Endorses Bruce Poliquin for U.S. Congress in Maine

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Rep. Bruce Poliquin for Congress in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Since his election to a seat held by Democrats for twenty years, Rep. Bruce Poliquin has fought to enact common sense policies that enable businesses to thrive and create jobs for the people of Maine. We wholeheartedly endorse his reelection bid and commend his efforts to balance the budget, lower taxes, and reduce red tape that hampers our economy and job growth.

“Growing up in a working-class family in Central Maine, Bruce learned about the meaning of hard work. Having spent years working in the private sector, he understands the challenges facing entrepreneurs and knows that government too often erects barriers to job creation and economic growth through taxation and overregulation. During Bruce’s tenure as Maine State Treasurer, he successfully fought to eliminate $1.7 billion in public pension debt and helped bring about the largest tax cut in state history. In 2014, he carried that record of conservative leadership with him to Washington, where he has supported bills like the Trump tax cuts and the repeal and replacement of Obamacare that restore our economy and enable the American people to keep more of their hard-earned money.

“Democrats are spending millions of dollars to defeat Bruce Poliquin precisely because he has advocated for those successful policies and proven their big government solutions are wrong. While Bruce and other conservatives in Congress have been busy fighting for limited government and economic freedom, liberals have been engaging in partisan, personal attacks and attempting to obstruct conservatives’ efforts at reform. Their goal is strikingly obvious: to bring the Trump conservative agenda to a grinding halt and return America to the economic stagnation and failed big government programs of the Obama years. If we are to continue restoring American greatness, we must defeat the Democrats at every turn and return conservative leaders like Bruce Poliquin to Congress,” Russo concluded.
