Tea Party Express Endorses Rep. Karen Handel for Congress in Georgia

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Rep. Karen Handel for U.S. Congress in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Today, we are excited to endorse Tea Party Congresswoman Karen Handel for reelection. Immediately after her election to Congress last year, Karen Handel set to work fighting for the conservative principles of limited government, economic freedom, and the rule of law. We are not at all surprised, as Karen has a proven record of principled leadership through her years as Chairman of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners and as Secretary of State.

“As a member of Congress, Karen has helped pass bills to repeal the effects of Obamacare, voted to give patients access to lower premium plans and lower costs on prescription medicine, and voted to continue the expansion of health savings accounts. She supports building the wall and has voted for stronger border security. She supports our law enforcement and helped pass the Protect and Serve Act of 2018, making intentional crime against our law enforcement officers hate crimes punishable by ten additional years of prison time. She also supported President Trump’s successful tax cuts, which are putting more money into Georgians’ pockets and stimulating job creation.

“Karen has the distinction of being one of only five women ever elected to statewide office in Georgia, the first woman ever to serve as Secretary of State, and the first Republican woman ever elected to Congress in Georgia. The liberals and their cohorts in the media love to highlight the number of Democratic women running for office and proclaim 2018 the ‘Year of the Woman.’ Yet they conveniently ignore successful Republican women like Karen Handel and prop up the false narrative that to be a successful female candidate, one must be a Democrat. This may be the ‘Year of the Woman,’ but principled conservatives like Karen Handel will make it the ‘Year of the Conservative Woman,'” Russo concluded.
