Congresswoman Bachmann Garners Strong Tea Party Support

Let Voters Decide on the Best Candidate

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, said today that Congresswoman Bachmann garners broad support within the tea party movement. The organization also came out opposing any efforts to push her or any other candidates out of the race before the Iowa caucuses on January 3rd.

Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer said, “While the Tea Party Express has not endorsed a presidential candidate at this time, Michele Bachmann garners strong Tea Party support because of her work and commitment to restoring fiscal responsibility to Washington, D.C. We have been pleased with Congresswoman Bachmann’s contributions to this Presidential race and to the Tea Party movement by focusing attention on the need to end the out-of-control government spending and skyrocketing national debt. She is a champion of Tea Party values, as she campaigns for fiscal responsibility and the principles of a limited federal government laid out in the U.S. Constitution.

“The Tea Party Express is committed to finding and endorsing the strongest conservative candidate to take on President Barack Obama next year. In order to develop the best candidate, we must allow for a competitive process in Iowa and the early primary and other caucus states. Let’s let the voters in Iowa choose the leading candidates to go forward from the many excellent candidates we have,” Kremer concluded.

In August the Tea Party Express launched a 31-stop Reclaiming America Presidential Bus Tour in advance of the CNN/Tea Party Express Presidential Debate on September 12th. Bachmann spoke at one of the tour’s four rallies held in Iowa.
