Tea Party Express Endorses Bunni Pounds for U.S. Congress in Texas

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Bunni Pounds for U.S. House in Texas’ Fifth Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We are enthusiastic in our support for Bunni Pounds because she has been a long-time stalwart conservative activist who is committed to bringing principled conservative ideas to Washington. She is in tune with our economic message of reducing government spending and enacting pro-growth tax and regulatory measures.

“We are also proud to stand with current conservative Congressman Jeb Hensarling’s strong endorsement as well as House Freedom Caucus Chairman, Congressman Mark Meadows’ powerful support of Pounds. They understand the need for conservative reinforcements in Washington, and Pounds is the one to deliver it.

“A small business owner who has spent years in the trenches fighting for conservative principles, we are certain Bunni will be a fantastic ally in the fight to reign in the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government. She understands the effects of high taxes, onerous regulations, and disastrous programs like Obamacare on ordinary Texans, and she’ll fight to get the federal government off their backs.

“President Trump and the Republican majority have delivered several wins for conservatives, including tax cuts, regulatory reform, and a roaring economy. However, as evidenced by the recent omnibus spending bill, much more work is needed to beat back the big government establishment that is so addicted to overspending. We need the leadership of staunch conservatives like Bunni Pounds more than ever to fight for the limited constitutional government the American people demanded when they elected their president and Congressional representatives,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

I wholeheartedly support Bunni Pounds. She is definitely the conservative in this race. I was even an opponent in this race and give my full endorsement to Bunni. I know the grassroots of Texas, and they give their support to Bunni Pounds.
– Jason Wright, Former Congressional Candidate Texas 5 and Grassroots Tea Party Activist

Bunni is the best conservative candidate in this race. Her conservative values are good, and she could very well possibly be the first woman to join the Freedom Caucus. Her caliber is right there with Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and others. Bunni has my full support.
– Doc Collins, Van Zandt County Tea Party Leader

I absolutely throw my full support behind Bunni Pounds. I know her to be a person of character and a strong conservative. She will represent my conservative values along with the conservative values of my fellow Texans.
