ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Senator Lindsey Graham in South Carolina

For Immediate Release: June 4, 2020

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Senator Lindsey Graham for reelection in South Carolina.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Since our founding in 2009, Tea Party Express has been at the forefront to support AND elect conservative candidates that will fight to return America to the ‘shining city on a hill’ that President Reagan envisioned. Whether it has been the key economic issues of cutting excessive taxes or a robust defense policy, Senator Lindsey Graham most assuredly fits that description.

Senator Graham’s record of supporting Tea Party principles and advancing President Trump’s agenda is quite clear and has proven time and again that he can get results in Washington for the people of South Carolina. “Lindsey Graham has dedicated his life to serving his country. After completing law school, he joined the U.S. Air Force as a member of the Judge Advocate General Corps, serving a total of 33 years including six on active duty.

Throughout his twenty-five years of service in the House and Senate, Graham has consistently fought to curb out-of-control federal spending, cut taxes, and reduce the size and intrusiveness of the federal government. His staunch support for President Trump’s conservative agenda has been critical to the Senate passing tax and regulatory reform, confirming the President’s judicial and cabinet nominees, and keeping the nation safe and secure. “It is critical for conservatives to maintain, and even expand, our Senate majority in November.

Despite the vigorous challenge from Democrats, Graham is poised for another strong re-election if conservatives rally and support him. More than one Supreme Court seat may become vacant in the next few years, not to mention numerous lower court judgeships, and Senator Graham will play a crucial role as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

President Trump will need a strong Senate majority and an effective Chairman Graham of the Judiciary Committee to confirm his nominees and replace liberal activist judges with ones who understand and honor the Constitution. The Senate must continue to be a bulwark against the radical left’s dangerous agenda, and Lindsey Graham has spent his entire career doing just that. Tea Party Express believes it is critical that we send him back to the Senate,” Russo concluded.
