Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Endorses Roy Moore for U.S. Senate
ATLANTA, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin today released the following statement, announcing that the Super PAC associated with the nation’s largest Tea Party group has endorsed Roy Moore for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in the upcoming Alabama special election runoff.
“In the special election runoff for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate pitting Constitutional conservative Roy Moore against former D.C. lobbyist/current Swamp Denizen Luther Strange, there is no contest – Roy Moore wins, hands down.
“Roy Moore is a strong conservative who will put the values and principles of the people of Alabama first when deciding how to cast his vote in the Senate. He supports term limits for Members of Congress, will work to fully repeal ObamaCare and overturn Congress’ illegal special exemption from the law, will not vote to raise the debt limit, demands stronger border security and tougher enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws, and will work for tax reform that cuts taxes for middle class families and helps generate new job growth.
“Judge Moore has been on the receiving end of millions of dollars worth of attack ads paid for by Mitch McConnell’s allies in the Washington Swamp. But we know the people of Alabama can see through that junk, and we’re confident that in the end, all those negative ads will backfire on McConnell and his allies – all those ads do is make it clear to the voters of Alabama who is the candidate of the Washington special interests, and who is the candidate fighting for the good people of Alabama.
“When I asked Becky Gerritson, President of the Wetumpka Tea Party (the largest and most active Tea Party in Alabama) for her thoughts on an endorsement, she wrote back, ‘I wholeheartedly support Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund’s endorsement of Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. Judge Roy Moore is a man of principle and integrity. His experience as an Alabama Supreme Court Judge and Chief Justice and his knowledge and understanding of the U.S. Constitution are valuable assets he will bring to the Senate. I have no doubt that he will work to represent the people of Alabama and uphold the values that have and will continue to make this country great.’
“Consequently, on behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, I am pleased to endorse Roy Moore for the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, and I urge all voters in Alabama to make a plan to be a voter for him in the September 26 special runoff election.”
