ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Nancy Mace for Congress in South Carolina

For Immediate Release: June 2, 2020

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Nancy Mace in South Carolina’s First Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Lowcountry voters are hungry for real representation in Congress after nearly two long years of liberal Joe Cunningham. Tea Party Express is proud to stand with Tea Party Senator Mike Lee, who calls Nancy Mace ‘the independent conservative who can win back this seat.’  For conservatives to regain the House of Representatives and replace Nancy Pelosi as Speaker, this is an essential seat to win. Nancy has the skills, energy, philosophy and experience to bring a conservative victory where it is badly needed.

Nancy Mace has never wavered in the face of challenges. In 1999, she became the first female cadet to graduate from the Citadel’s Corps of Cadets, earning a degree in business administration and later writing a book about her experience. A small business owner, she has experienced firsthand the challenges entrepreneurs face each day in the form of crushing regulatory and tax burdens. Nancy understands that free markets and personal liberty enable the American Dream, not federal government intervention and intrusion. That is why she supports lowering taxes, balancing the federal budget, and tackling out mounting federal debt.

When Joe Cunningham ran for Congress two years ago, he told Lowcountry voters that he would be an independent, bipartisan voice in Washington. But once he was elected, he turned around and voted in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi at virtually every opportunity. He ignored his pledge of pursuing policies that make a difference to families and small businesses struggling under the weight of an overreaching federal government. Pelosi’s far-left California values have no place in South Carolina. Nancy Mace will restore commonsense representation to the First District and be a voice in Congress for the Tea Party principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, and economic freedom,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots:

I am proud to support Nancy Mace for Congress. Nancy is a fiscal conservative who has a record of getting good things done for the people of South Carolina. She won’t be a swamp-dweller; she will put the interest of the American taxpayer first…ALWAYS!
