Tea Party Express Praises Michele Bachmann for Her Leadership

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, praises Congresswoman Michele Bachmann for her conservative leadership in Congress.

Tea Party Express’ Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We have been proud of Congresswoman Bachmann’s leadership in fighting for Tea Party values in Washington. She has served as a strong advocate for fiscal responsibility and limited government. She played a crucial role in turning the Tea Party protest movement into a political action force that brought stunning change across America in 2010. Without her standing up for the Tea Party movement at the earliest time, we would not have enjoyed such a successful political effort.

“As a presidential candidate, Bachmann raised the Tea Party profile to new heights, and her contributions to the movement will be long standing. It is with great disappointment we learn she will not seek reelection to Congress in 2014. However, we know that her fight for liberty and free markets will not stop at the end of her term. We look forward to working with her as she continues her journey as an influential conservative leader,” Russo concluded.
