Tea Party Express Endorses Phil Berger, Jr. for Congress

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is proud to endorse Phil Berger, Jr. for North Carolina’s Sixth Congressional District. The GOP Primary run-off will be held on July 15.

Tea Party Express Executive Director Taylor Budowich said, “The spending and debt racked up by politicians in Washington, D.C. is sickening. That’s why it’s critical to elect conservatives that have a proven ability to stand up for taxpayers. In North Carolina’s 6th Congressional District, Phil Berger, Jr. is that kind of conservative. He understands that taxes cripple our economy, and that’s why he signed the taxpayer protection pledge

“We need conservatives in Washington who are not afraid to tackle tough problems. As a District Attorney, Phil has woken up every morning ready to fight for North Carolina citizens by prosecuting criminals to the fullest extent of the law. He will bring that fighting spirit to Washington where doing nothing has become the rule.

“As a signer to the Repeal Obamacare Pledge, Phil is also a strong opponent to Obamacare, which is responsible for skyrocketing premiums in North Carolina. We believe Phil’s service to his community, conservative beliefs and willingness to fight for what’s right will make him a bold leader in Congress. We encourage voters throughout the district to vote for Phil Berger, Jr. on July 15th!” Budowich concluded.

Comments from local Tea Party leaders:

“I want you to know I fully support Phil Berger Jr. for Congress. He and his family have been critical to the rise of the conservative revival in North Carolina. His solid conservative record at District Attorney and his involvement in helping restore the justice for the worst murders in our state show his true capacity for leadership.

As one of North Carolinas movement conservatives and a leader in the conservative movement, I feel confident in saying I know Phil will govern as a tea party leader, questioning the status quo, questioning the leadership and never forgetting where he came from. North Carolina needs Phil Berger Jr. America needs Phil Berger Jr. in Congress.”

-Dallas Woodhouse, President of Carolina Rising, a conservative statewide grassroots organization

“I’ve been a part of many successful campaigns and Phil Berger is the clear leader in this race. He’s the most conservative candidate and truly connects with the voters on all the important issues.”

-Keith Tatum, Tea Party Leader and Conservative Activist

“We’ve known Phil for years, and we know Phil is a strong conservative who will be a friend to us. Phil is a proven conservative and we’re glad he’s running to be our Congressman. We fully support Phil Berger.”

-Wayne McKinney and Sam Hill Stokes County Tea Party Activists

Tom Kern is a North Carolina tea party activist, who had this to say of Berger’s candidacy: “I have talked to Phil and I believe him when he says he will uphold the principles we believe in. On Obamacare, he supports repeal. On immigration, he is against amnesty. He is believer in the constitution and I’m proud to endorse him for Congress.”

”We believe Phil is the true conservative in the race for Congress. As long time tea party activists concerned about our country, we trust Phil to be our voice in Washington to fight the Obama administration.”
