Tea Party Express Endorses Julia Letlow in Louisiana District 5 Special Election

For Immediate Release: March 19, 2021

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Julia Letlow for Congress in Saturday’s special election in Louisiana’s Fifth Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “After the unfortunate passing of her husband, Congressman-elect Luke Letlow, Julia Letlow courageously took up his commitment to limited government, economic freedom, and Louisiana values. The far left is relentlessly attacking all that makes America great, but Julia will stand alongside conservatives in Congress to safeguard our freedoms and work to get our economy moving again.

“With a successful career in higher education, both as an instructor and an administrator, Julia is a proven leader with an impressive record of fiscal responsibility and strategic planning. We can count on her to stop excessive spending and take seriously the need to address our skyrocketing national debt. It is unfair to burden our children and grandchildren with debt while politicians in Washington overspend to curry favor with special interests and political elites. Julia will work to enact policies that reduce the size and cost of the federal government, get Washington out of the way of entrepreneurs and hardworking families, and bring jobs back to Louisiana.

“President Biden and the Democrats have only been in charge for a few months, but they have already rammed through a massive expansion of the welfare state and put the federal government trillions further into debt. They have reversed many of President Trump’s regulatory reforms that had helped grow our economy and put Americans back to work. With only a handful of seats separating conservatives from control of the House, it is critically important to hold onto every red seat and keep the pressure on the liberals to stop excessive spending. We need committed conservatives like Julia Letlow in Congress fighting the Democrats’ rollback of conservative accomplishments and ultimately to rip the gavel out of Nancy Pelosi’s hand once and for all in 2022,” Russo concluded.
