ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Rand Paul for Senate in Kentucky
For Immediate Release: June 28, 2022
Sacramento, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Senator Rand Paul for re-election to the United States Senate from the State of Kentucky.
Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “As a United States Senator, Rand Paul has been a consistent defender of our Constitution and a fierce deficit hawk against the fiscal irresponsibility and massive spending bills flooding out of Congress. At the same time, he has been one of the most attentive Senators to his home state by spending frequent time in Kentucky and being responsive to the needs of his constituents.
“Rand Paul was part of the initial Tea Party tidal wave that shook Washington, D.C. to its core and forever changed the way politics operates. While establishment politicians in both parties were used to ‘politics as usual’ and enjoyed the comfort of playing political games to preserve the status quo, Rand was the conservative outsider who reversed the course and brought to light the political shenanigans taking place behind closed doors. He exposed the truth about the severity of our spending crisis and the destruction it has inflicted on our nation.
“As politicians in both parties continue to vote for tax hikes and gleefully go on spending sprees with taxpayer funds, Rand has been one of the few voices voting no. While politicians hope they can continue to sneak through their personal pet projects hidden deep inside bloated spending bills, Rand isn’t afraid to expose their backroom deals and make public the irresponsible and often frivolous items buried deep within legislation.
“Rand also has been particularly effective in Committees by putting federal government bureaucrats in the hot seat when they try to hide the facts from the American people. His constant vigilance on the federal government’s changing story on COVID-19 has been especially effective in forcing them to admit the evidence they often are clearly trying to obscure.
“A fierce defender of our constitutional liberties, Rand Paul has tirelessly fought to restore government to its limited role, as he knows we can never trade our liberties for ‘security.’ Each time the government overreaches its authority, we can count on Senator Paul to expose their abuse of power and point them back to the Constitution, which outlines their intended purpose and holds them accountable to the American people.
“Rand Paul knows the dire financial state of our economy due to reckless spending legislation, and he understands that the failure to create and manage a federal budget is a danger to our American sovereignty. To combat the out-of-control spending crisis in Congress, Rand has repeatedly introduced a plan to balance the federal budget, knowing that a weakened economy saddled with debt hurts future generations and robs Americans of their financial security.
“Rand Paul has been a consistent and reliable voice for our Tea Party values of limited government, lower taxes, and reining in irresponsible government spending. He’s demonstrated a commitment to fighting for conservative principles to bring back fiscal sanity, even if he has to stand alone. We are honored to offer our strong endorsement to Senator Rand Paul for re-election to the United States Senate, and look forward to his continued leadership in the Senate to help restore America to its founding principles,” Russo concluded.
