Citizens Fund Endorses Vitter for Louisiana Governor

Kenner, Louisiana – Jenny Beth Martin, Chairman of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF), speaking at rallies in Kenner, Covington, and Denham Springs, Louisiana, today endorsed David Vitter in Louisiana’s gubernatorial race.

“David Vitter is a conservative champion who has stood up for us on a broad range of issues, and now it’s our turn to stand up for him,” Martin said. “When he asked for our support, I told him I had just one question – when was the next flight to Louisiana?

“David has long been a thorn in the side of the Establishment and the special interests. When he was first elected to the Louisiana legislature, he introduced a bill establishing term limits on legislators; within a few years, term limits became state law. In the U.S. House and U.S. Senate, he continued fighting for the people against the special interests – so much so that when President Obama colluded with congressional leaders to provide an unlawful special exemption from ObamaCare for Members of Congress and their staffs, David Vitter was the first one to stand up and say that was wrong. Since then, he’s led the fight to repeal Congress’ special exemption from ObamaCare. He fought against bailing out Wall Street, and he fought against raising the debt limit, because he knows America cannot borrow its way to prosperity. And let’s not forget his fight to stop illegal immigration – he’s stood up against the special interests in his own party when necessary to stand for American workers, many of whose wages are dropping because of rampant illegal immigration. Is it any wonder the Establishment doesn’t like him?

“Louisiana deserves to have a conservative fighter as governor,” Martin continued. “David Vitter has proven his commitment to limited, transparent, and accountable government in the Senate; he’s proven his dedication to the principles of personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future; and he’s proven his faithfulness to the oath of office he swore. I urge the voters of Louisiana to vote for him to be their next governor, and I urge all Tea Party supporters in the state to talk to their friends, neighbors, and coworkers this week in the all-important effort to help get out the vote in this crucial election.”
