ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Matt Rosendale for Congress in Montana

For Immediate Release: May 21, 2020

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Montana State Auditor Matt Rosendale in the race to replace retiring Rep. Greg Gianforte in Montana’s at-large Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “The big government agenda being pushed by liberal Democrats in Congress is hurting the hard-working people of Montana. Matt Rosendale is exactly the candidate who will stand up for Montanans to take control of their own lives and get Washington off their backs. 

Matt’s successful track record of cutting spending as a member of the Montana House of Representatives and slashing regulations as State Auditor is the breath of fresh air needed in Congress. A successful small businessman, Matt understands how government bureaucracy stifles economic growth and hurts working people. It will take principled conservative outsiders like Matt Rosendale to get Washington working for the American people again instead of standing in the way of job creators and entrepreneurs. 

“We have become well acquainted with Matt’s dedication to the principles of freedom and liberty against an ever-intruding federal government. We only have to look at over-taxed and over-regulated states like New York and California to know that we don’t want that kind of government in Washington foisted on the people of Montana.  Matt will be a strong voice for Montana citizens who want the opportunity to achieve their own success without an overbearing federal government.

While the American people have been suffering through lockdowns and job losses, Nancy Pelosi and her liberal cronies in Congress have been using the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to push for more overbearing big government and wasteful social programs. This approach undermines economic progress and leads to more unsustainable federal debt. Our economic recovery depends on limited government, low taxes, and the ingenuity of the American people. That is why it is critical that we knock Pelosi out of power by taking back Congress and keeping critical seats like Montana’s in conservative hands,” Russo concluded.

Support from Montana’s Republican Legislators:

Matt Rosendale understands that Montana businesses create jobs—not government. He has spent his career fighting to loosen the government stranglehold on our job creators and has won some important battles.” Senator Jason Ellsworth, SD 43

Matt Rosendale moved from a thriving business career to a successful and conservative public servant who has constantly focused on lowering taxes while increasing efficiencies. The people of Montana need Matt’s sharp mind, energy, and work ethic in Congress.” – Senator Mike Cuffe, SD 1
