“The Capitalist Evangelist,” Wayne Allyn Root, To Deliver Tea Party Response to President’s State of the Union

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, announced today that Wayne Allyn Root will deliver the Tea Party response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “2016 has become the year of the outsider as the public continues to show strong support in the presidential contest for candidates that eschew connections with the Washington establish. So it is appropriate for the Tea Party Express to select a Washington ‘outsider’ who has had a remarkable career as a candidate, author, commentator and businessman while arguing persuasively for a more limited federal government.

“Wayne has appeared at Tea Party Express rallies and continues to support the importance of reducing the size, cost and intrusiveness of the federal government. As a frequent commentator on national television and radio, as well as a best-selling author and popular syndicated columnist, Wayne has been proudly referred to as ‘The Capitalist Evangelist.’

“I have known Wayne Root for dozens of years, and he has always stood forthrightly for the Reagan vision for America. He is a perfect representative of the Tea Party and is always an articulate spokesperson for a positive agenda for our country’s future,” Russo concluded.

Root graduated from Columbia University in 1983, as a classmate of President Barack Obama. He resides near Las Vegas, NV. In addition to his successful career as an author and spokesperson, he has had a successful business career in gaming, sports and television production.
