For Immediate Release: October 11, 2022

Sacramento, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Brian Fitzpatrick for re-election in Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District and Lisa Scheller in Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District.  

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We are pleased to support Brian Fitzpatrick and Lisa Scheller for Congress because they are both committed to championing our Tea Party principles of limited government, lower taxes, and fiscal responsibility.

Brian Fitzpatrick, Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District.  “Congressman Fitzpatrick is a commonsense leader who isn’t afraid to reach across the aisle to get things done.  Unlike most politicians who are focused on advancing their own political agenda, Brian has fought tirelessly against government corruption and for the people of his district to ensure every Pennsylvanian has the chance to achieve success.  

“During his career as an FBI agent, Brian dedicated himself to fighting against political corruption while supporting counterterrorism efforts.  And due to his hard work as a Special Assistant United States Attorney, Brian was named ‘Investigator of the Year’ by the Federal Law Enforcement Foundation.

“The big-government policies from liberals in Congress like Speaker Nancy Pelosi have destroyed the American way of life, but Brian Fitzpatrick is determined to reverse the course.  He’s committed to working hard and finding solutions like supporting a Balanced Budget Amendment and fighting against the Pelosi-style politics which continue to bankrupt current and future generations.

“To fix the dysfunction in Washington, D.C., we need to re-elect commonsense leaders like Brian Fitzpatrick to Congress.  I’m confident Congressman Fitzpatrick will continue to champion our Tea Party principles to rein in reckless spending, stop massive tax increases, and reduce the size of government, and we are pleased to endorse his campaign.

Lisa Scheller, Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District. “Lisa Scheller is a bold leader who is committed to making sure the people of Pennsylvania are represented by someone who will fight on their behalf against the disastrous policies in Washington destroying the Keystone State.  

Republican Lisa Scheller, a businesswoman and former Lehigh County commissioner, announces announces congressional bid.

“While supporting excessive federal spending that has unleashed inflation, Congresswoman Susan Wild has the audacity to blame the entire economic disaster on Vladimir Putin.  Wild won’t take responsibility for her own actions that have created economic havoc in Pennsylvania.

“As the granddaughter of immigrants and a successful CEO of a manufacturing company, Lisa is living the American Dream and wants to make sure future generations will have the opportunity and freedom to pursue their dreams too. 

“Unlike her opponent who votes with President Joe Biden 100 percent of the time, Lisa Scheller will be a fresh voice of new leadership and will advocate for the people in the 7th District instead of being yet another vote in the pocket of Speaker Nancy Pelosi. 

Lisa has pledged to fight against massive tax increases and vowed to rein in government spending, and she believes Americans are best served when the government gets out of the way and lets individuals make their own decisions.  And as a successful business leader, Lisa understands the free market creates jobs and strengthens the economy, and she is committed to fight against oppressive regulations that kill jobs and destroy future opportunities for individuals.  

“Pennsylvanians deserve a leader like Lisa who will remain loyal to the Keystone State and not the elitist politicians in Washington, D.C.  I have no doubt Lisa will fiercely advocate for our Tea Party principles to cut taxes, stop runaway spending, and restore American prosperity, and we are pleased to endorse her campaign,” Russo concluded.
