Tea Party Express Endorses Andrew Grant for U.S. Congress in California

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Andrew Grant for Congress in California’s Seventh Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “When the voters elected an outsider like Donald Trump to the White House, they made it clear that they were sick and tired of politics as usual in Washington. They wanted an outsider to take on the political establishment. To continue the needed reforms, like tax and regulatory policies that have stimulated economic growth, voters have an excellent choice of a political outsider who will put the interests of the people first. Andrew Grant is a Marine Corps veteran and business leader who will stand with conservatives in Congress with that needed outsider spirit to continue changing the culture of ‘do nothing’ inside the Beltway and focus on the serious problems America faces.

“A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and a Marine Corps intelligence officer, Andrew Grant learned the values of courage, integrity, and leadership while serving our country. He led numerous combat intelligence teams in Afghanistan, the Middle East, and elsewhere around the globe, and he served as an analyst in the Defense Intelligence Agency’s North Korea analysis group. Upon completing his military service, Andrew returned to Northern California and became active in business as both an entrepreneur and executive. As CEO of the Northern California World Trade Center, he helped California businesses expand their international trade opportunities that create good paying jobs. With his military and business experience, Andrew is well prepared to tackle some of the most critical issues facing the United States, including international trade, national defense, and regulatory and tax reform.

“Ami Bera likes to present himself as a moderate, but his voting record tells a different story. At practically every turn, Bera has embraced the obstructionist, big government agenda pushed by liberals like Nancy Pelosi. The voters of the Seventh District deserve better than empty promises from politicians who say one thing at home and do another thing when they are with their cronies in Washington. Andrew Grant will bring character, integrity, and principled leadership to Congress, and we encourage voters to cast their ballots for him in November,” Russo concluded.
