Tea Party Express Endorses Mike Braun for U.S. Senate in Indiana

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Mike Braun for U.S. Senate in Indiana.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Mike Braun is a successful businessman and effective public servant committed to defending Hoosier values. He is a staunch proponent of the Tea Party principles of limited government, lower taxes, and economic freedom, and we are excited to endorse his candidacy for U.S. Senate.

“As the founder and CEO of Meyer Distributing and owner of Meyer Logistics, Mike Braun has employed thousands of Americans across the United States, including many Hoosiers. He knows better than anyone how government too often hinders economic growth by saddling entrepreneurs with burdensome taxes and excessive regulations. In addition to his successful business career, Mike has been an effective public servant, having served for ten years as a member of the Jasper School Board and three years as State Representative for the 63rd District, during which the Indiana General Assembly was ranked the most conservative legislative body in the country. We need his leadership and experience more than ever in the Senate to help President Trump and our Tea Party Congress continue draining the swamp and bringing back American prosperity.

“Joe Donnelly claims to represent Hoosier values, yet he has spent the past six years promoting the big government liberalism of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi that has produced nothing but economic stagnation. Donnelly is a consistent vote against conservative policies that are helping Indiana, including the successful Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, healthcare reform, and the slashing of onerous bureaucratic regulations. He fooled Indiana voters once, but now has exposed himself as the liberal that he is. Next week, Hoosiers can send a message that they want the Senate to continue passing legislation that will help grow the economy, reduce the size and intrusiveness of the federal government, and confirm conservative judges to the federal courts. The best way they can do that is by electing Mike Braun to replace liberal Joe Donnelly,” Russo concluded.
