ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Steve Chabot for Re-Election to Congress in Ohio

For Immediate Release: July 7, 2022

Sacramento, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Steve Chabot for re-election to Congress in Ohio’s First Congressional District.

U.S. Representative Steve Chabot

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Steve Chabot is a rock-solid conservative who has spent his entire career in public service working to cut frivolous spending and reduce excessive tax burdens on Ohioans.  He has been a leader in Congress in protecting small business from the burdensome and unnecessary regulations and taxes that the federal government is intent on inflicting on our economy.

“He faithfully served his local community as a Cincinnati City Councilman and Hamilton County Commissioner before he was elected to Congress in the “Republican Revolution” of 1994.  For more than two decades, Steve has been a strong advocate for fiscal responsibility and a fierce fighter for small business owners, working to ease the burdensome regulations and oppressive mandates that are taking jobs away from hard-working Ohioans.

“In fact, because of Steve’s continued work to stop wasteful spending and out-of-control tax hikes, Citizens Against Government Waste, the Concord Coalition, and the National Taxpayers Union continue to rate him as one of the most ‘taxpayer friendly’ members in all of Congress.  He has joined with Tea Party Express to promote a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as the only way to stop the politicians in Washington, D.C. from spending far more money than they receive in taxes from the American people.

“With Joe Biden and his Democrat pals continuing to spend our nation into oblivion through radical tax hikes and runaway spending bills, we need a proven fiscal conservative like Steve to stop the train wreck before it’s too late. It is no surprise that his opponent is a former staff member to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and subscribes to the big-government intrusion that has derailed our economy and plunged us to the brink of a recession. 

Steve’s decades of service to his community and demonstrated record of being a friend to taxpayers and small businesses makes him a solid candidate.  I’m confident when re-elected, Steve will continue to champion our Tea Party principles of curbing runaway spending and reducing the size and scope of government, and we are pleased to give him our full endorsement yet again,” Russo concluded. 

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

Congressman Chabot has a long track record of being a strong conservative voice in Congress. He’s been a tireless advocate for our area and a strong opponent to Joe Biden’s disastrous agenda.” – Jason Sponaugle, President of University of Cincinnati College Republicans.

“Congressman Chabot is committed to programs that help navigate entrepreneurs through the various stages of their business growth. We need strong members of Congress representing our communities by putting our priorities on the forefront of their policy agendas. We believe Congressman Chabot is truly an advocate for preserving history, revitalization of our Historic City, and demonstrates consistent support of business owners. We are proud to stand behind him in his re-election.” – Maryan Harrison, Vice Mayor City of South Lebanon

“Due to Steve’s long tenure in the House of Representatives he exerts considerable sway on important fiscal matters that come before Congress. Voters in our district should appreciate that he always follows strong conservative principles!” – Jim Berns, President of Republicans for a Greater Cincinnati
