Tea Party Express Celebrates Another Victory

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, congratulates newly elected Jason Smith on his victory in Missouri’s 8th Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer said, “As Speaker Pro-Tem, Smith has exhibited impressive leadership and principled values. His commitment to the Tea Party movement and our shared goal to reduce the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government are much needed in Washington, D.C.

“The Tea Party movement is now able to celebrate back-to-back Congressional victories – first in South Carolina and now in Missouri with Jason Smith. While the media insists on casting a negative light on the departure of some Tea Party leaders from Congress, they ignore the movement’s significant number of electoral victories in 2012 and the considerable momentum building toward 2014. We are excited for what Mr. Smith will bring to Washington and wish him the very best,” Kremer concluded.
