Tea Party Excited by Potential DeSantis Candidacy

Washington, D.C. – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, released the following statement from the organization’s Executive Director, Taylor Budowich, regarding the potential candidacy of Congressman Ron DeSantis for the U.S. Senate seat in Florida being vacated by Senator Marco Rubio:

“When we first endorsed Ron DeSantis for Congress in 2012, it was because he promised to challenge the status quo with bold, conservative leadership. He has done just that. Senator Rubio will be greatly missed, but a DeSantis candidacy would give Tea Partiers throughout Florida a competitve, conservative choice to replace him. Not only is DeSantis solid on the key economic issues, he also is a hard-working candidate who can be elected statewide in Florida. We are excited and encouraged by this exciting development.”
