Tea Party Express Announces Network of Debate Co-Sponsors!

Network of Local Tea Party Groups Join as Co-Sponsors for CNN/Tea Party Express Republican Presidential Debate

The Tea Party Express makes a major announcement today regarding the upcoming Tea Party presidential debate, hosted by CNN and Tea Party Express in Tampa, Florida, on September 12th, 2011.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Tea Party Express was teaming up with CNN to host the only national Tea Party debate, which would feature Republican presidential candidates vying for the support of the tea party movement and would focus exclusively on the core tea party issues of fiscal responsibility.

Today, we are excited to announce a broad national network of local tea party groups have joined up as co-sponsors of the Tea Party debate. The initial list of tea party co-sponsors includes more than 100 local tea party, 912, and conservative groups from every state across the nation.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have the power and influence of so many tea party co-sponsors in every state,” said Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer. “Tea party members across the country are more aware and engaged than ever. We are watching the presidential race very carefully, and preparing to support the best candidate that offers real solutions that will help secure the future prosperity of America.”

Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Our expectation is that with the entire tea party movement engaged in this debate, candidates will emerge with strong tea party support and the momentum to win the Republican nomination. The many groups are looking to coalesce behind a constitutional conservative who can articulate clear vision and a way forward for the country.”
