Tea Party Express Endorses Ted Cruz for US Senate

Dallas, TX – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest tea party political action committee, is proud to announce its endorsement of Ted Cruz in his campaign for the U.S. Senate.

The Chairman of the Tea Party Express Amy Kremer said, “One of Tea Party Express’ top priorities in 2012 is to elect a conservative majority to the U.S. Senate, and thanks to patriots like Ted Cruz, we are well on our way to doing just that.

“We were careful in our endorsement selection. When all is considered, Ted Cruz’s knowledge of the Constitution and focus on limiting the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government make him not only the strongest candidate in the race, but one of the strongest Tea Party candidates in the nation.

“We need representatives that are willing to pursue an agenda that tackles America’s out-of-control debt. Mr. Cruz’s steadfast commitment to repealing Obamacare, passing a balanced budget amendment, and cutting spending show his dedication to conservative principles that force Washington to live within it’s means.

The Tea Party Express has already endorsed Senate candidates Jon Bruning in Nebraska and Richard Mourdock in Indiana and plans to continue a series of endorsements over the next few months.
