ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Mike Flood and Don Bacon for Congress in Nebraska

For Immediate Release: July 22, 2022

Sacramento, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Mike Flood in Nebraska’s First Congressional District and Don Bacon in Nebraska’s Second Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We are pleased to support Mike Flood and Don Bacon for re-election to Congress because they are both principled conservatives who will put America first.

Mike Flood, Nebraska’s First Congressional District.  “Mike Flood is a strong conservative who is determined to shield Nebraskans from the job-killing of the Pelosi-Biden agenda.

Mike served the people of Nebraska in the State Legislature where he helped execute the largest tax relief bill in Nebraska history, putting more money back into the pockets of hard-working Nebraskans.  After winning a special election this summer, Mike now continues to serve Nebraskans as a U.S. Congressman, and I’m confident he will continue to bring his unwavering conservative principles into the halls of Congress to stop liberals from destroying our country.

“While Biden and his environmentalist friends seeks to endanger American sovereignty with their anti-drilling and anti-pipeline policies, Mike Flood supports energy exploration on American soil and strongly opposes the Green New Deal.  In fact, during Mike’s time in the Nebraska Legislature, Mike defeated radical environmentalists and helped pave the way for state approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, protecting America’s sovereignty and future security.

Mike’s dedication to conservative principles is desperately needed in Washington, D.C., especially as our nation faces sky-high taxes and record-high inflation.  We are proud to endorse Mike Flood and are confident he will continue to advocate for our Tea Party principles to slash burdensome regulations, reduce taxes, and promote long-lasting economic freedom and prosperity,” Russo concluded. 

Don Bacon, Nebraska’s Second Congressional District.  “Congressman Don Bacon is a true American patriot who has dedicated his entire life to serving our great nation.  His common-sense approach and leadership style have earned him the respect of not only his constituents, but fellow members of Congress on both sides of the aisle.

Don Bacon served the American people for almost 30 years in the United States Air Force and earned the rank of Brigadier General.  He is dedicated to an America-first agenda and continues to advocate for our military and veterans.  With only 91 members of Congress having served in the military, we need decorated veterans like Don Bacon who understand the complex issues our military and veterans face each day. Congressman Bacon’s national security background and combat experience are invaluable to guide the direction of our nation and keep America safe from those who wish to do us harm.

“Liberals have fought hard to win this seat, but when the “blue wave” swept our nation, Don Bacon won his election and continued to do so each election cycle, showing liberals their out-of-touch tax-and spend policies aren’t wanted in Nebraska. 

“Since his time in Congress, Don Bacon has continued to work across party lines to bring jobs and economic growth to Nebraska.  He’s a fierce fighter for the agriculture community, knowing that over 90% of Nebraska’s land hosts a farm or ranch.  Congressman Bacon firmly supports free-market and pro-growth principles and knows the best way for Nebraskans to succeed is to get the government out of the way.

“We are honored to give Don Bacon our endorsement yet again and are confident he’ll continue to fight for Nebraskans and champion our Tea party principles to rein in out-of-control spending and restore American prosperity,” Russo concluded.
