ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Rep. Chip Roy for Congress in Texas

For Immediate Release: October 15, 2020

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Rep. Chip Roy for Congress in Texas’ 21st Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “In this important election that will determine our country’s direction for years to come, it is crucial to send committed Tea Party conservatives like Chip Roy back to Congress. In addition to Chip’s experience as a federal prosecutor, he has served in key capacities for the some of the strongest conservative leaders in Texas, including Governor Rick Perry and Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, for whom he served as chief of staff. He has earned the trust and confidence of Texas leaders throughout his career.

“We have worked with Chip in some crucial battles in Washington to bring the federal government back under control. That’s why leading Tea Party Members of Congress have come out strongly in support of Chip’s re- election; Tea Party Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul have endorsed Chip because of his stellar record of standing up for limited constitutional government and individual liberty. Early voting begins tomorrow in Texas, and we encourage voters to get out and vote for Chip Roy.

“Chip understands that limited government leads to more freedom and opportunity for the American people. Whether it is getting Washington out of our healthcare decisions, simplifying our onerous tax code, or empowering businesses to create jobs by slashing regulations, he has been a consistent voice for economic liberty and a staunch defender of our God-given freedoms. Sometimes that has meant standing up to his own party when it has failed to challenge the broken system in Washington, which is more concerned with power and money than fulfilling its duties to the Constitution and the American people. To get our economy roaring again and the federal government off the backs of working families and entrepreneurs, we need conservative leaders like Chip Roy in Congress.

“The Democrats are dumping millions upon millions of dollars into seats that President Trump won in 2016, including the 21st District, to increase their majority in the House. They are counting on voters forgetting about all the progress the President and conservatives in Congress have made over the past four years and voting for radical leftists like Wendy Davis, who wants to kill our economic recovery through excessive taxes, bloated social programs, and bureaucrats controlling your personal choices and healthcare decisions. Texans wisely rejected Davis’ losing campaign for Governor, and now have another chance to reject the liberal policies that Davis likes to espouse. We know Texas has a proud history of individual responsibility and personal liberty that simply doesn’t fit with Davis’ radical ideas. Chip Roy will fight to restore the values and principles both America and Texas were founded upon,” Russo concluded.
