ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Michelle Fischbach for Congress in Minnesota

For Immediate Release: July 28, 2020

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of State Senator and former Lieutenant Governor Michelle Fischbach for Congress in Minnesota’s Seventh Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We are excited to endorse proven conservative leader Michelle Fischbach in this must-win Congressional seat. Her commitment to the Tea Party principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility is unmatched, and she has an extensive record of standing up for western Minnesota values at the State Capitol in St. Paul.

Michelle Fischbach has spent decades fighting on behalf of working families and entrepreneurs, beginning with her election to the Paynesville City Council in 1994. In more than twenty years in the Minnesota State Senate, she has consistently fought for smaller government and lower taxes in a Democrat-dominated legislature. When Republicans gained control of the Senate in 2011 for the first time in a generation, Michelle’s conservative leadership led her to be elected Senate President, the first woman in state history to hold that position. President Trump needs Tea Party conservatives like Michelle in Congress as he fights to get Americans back to work, further reduce onerous taxes and regulations, and beat back the corrupt Washington establishment.

“The Seventh District is a lynchpin in conservative efforts to regain control of Congress and rip the gavel out of Nancy Pelosi’s hands. Colin Peterson has lost touch with western Minnesota in his three decades in Congress. Although he represents a district that President Trump won by thirty points and continues to cast himself as a Blue Dog Democrat, he enthusiastically supported Nancy Pelosi for Speaker and continues to stand idly by while his party embraces the radical socialist agenda of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. The time has come to send Colin Peterson packing and replace him with staunch conservative leader Michelle Fischbach,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

Michelle Fischbach is a woman of integrity, traditional American values and strength of will. She is full of hope for the future of this country. We know that she will vote to uphold these ideals and advance the cause of freedom in Congress.” – Curtis and Jan DePuy, Redwood Falls, MN (Curtis is a retired pastor and farmer, and Jan is a teacher.)

“I firmly stand in support, along with our great President Trump, of Michelle Fischbach‘s campaign for US House representing MN District 7. She has the experience and backbone to defeat Collin and stand up against the likes of Pelosi, AOC, and Ilhan Omar. Her platform and moral fortitude are truly inspirational to me.” – Terri Olson, Thief River Falls, MN (Terri is a Registered Nurse, BSN.)

“I’ve known Michelle Fischbach for many years and know her to be an unswerving, effective defender of true conservative principles and values. She will make a superlative congresswoman.” – Karen Urdahl, Grove City, MN (Co-founder & Co-Chair, Central MN Freedom Rally)

“As the founder of Tea Party Patriots of Browerville, I support Michelle Fischbach because she has fought for limited government and fiscal responsibility in the Minnesota Senate. She has the experience and the strength to win and continue fighting big government in Washington, DC.” – Nancy Judd, Cushing, MN (Retired Customer Service and Sales)
