ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Matt Jacobs in California’s 26th Congressional District

For Immediate Release: September 30, 2022

Sacramento, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Matt Jacobs in California’s 26th Congressional District.  

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We are pleased to support Matt Jacobs for Congress as he is passionate about helping make the American dream a reality for those who wish to achieve it.

“As the grandson of two Holocaust survivors who came to America as refugees, Matt’s roots have allowed him to appreciate the freedom we experience as Americans and to never take it for granted.

“A lifelong Californian raised in Ventura County, Matt’s commitment to hard work led him to graduate in the top 1 percent of his class at UCLA. Upon graduation, he went on to earn a master’s degree from Princeton and a law degree from NYU.

Matt then became a federal prosecutor where he helped lock up America’s most dangerous criminals, including gang leaders, human traffickers, and even al-Qaeda terrorists.  Thanks to Matt’s dedication to getting America’s worst enemies off the streets, national law enforcement organizations named him ‘Prosecutor of the Year’ and gave him the ‘True American Hero’ award. 

“Unlike liberals in Congress like Speaker Nancy Pelosi who believe in taxing Americans to death, Matt knows the true path to prosperity is achieved through lower taxes and reduced regulations.  He’s committed to keeping government in its proper role so every American has the same opportunity to achieve the American dream, just like his grandparents.

“Ventura County will be well-served to have Matt Jacobs represent their interests in Washington, D.C.  I’m confident Matt will champion our Tea Party principles to reduce the size of government, rein in runaway spending, and restore American prosperity, and we are proud to give Matt Jacobs our endorsement,” Russo concluded.
