ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Victoria Spartz for Congress in Indiana

For Immediate Release: August 19, 2020

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of State Senator Victoria Spartz for Congress in the race to replace retiring Congresswoman Susan Brooks in Indiana’s Fifth Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “During her tenure in the Indiana State Senate, Victoria Spartz developed a reputation as one of the state’s most conservative legislators. Her Tea Party message of limited government and economic freedom is just what we need as the nation’s economy begins to recover.

“Born and raised under communist rule in Ukraine, Victoria understands the dangers of socialism and why it must never be allowed to take root here in the United States. Through hard work and the opportunities provided by our free society, she built several successful businesses from the ground up, something she never could have done under a communist regime. Victoria knows that liberty and big government are opposing forces, which is why she fought in the State Senate to repeal unnecessary regulations, get government out of mismanaging healthcare, and protect our individual liberties. As the left increasingly embraces socialist ideas, we need more conservatives like Victoria in Congress to protect our liberties and secure a prosperous future for our children and grandchildren.

“This election presents voters with a choice between economic prosperity and individual liberty or the Democrats’ radical socialist agenda. A Biden-Harris administration and a Democrat-controlled Congress would undo all the progress President Trump and conservatives have made in cutting government waste and reducing onerous taxes and regulations while implementing wasteful and ineffective social programs that saddle us with debt and stifle our economic freedom. They will enable the violent leftist thugs roaming the street destroying businesses, attacking law enforcement, and tearing down our history. Victoria Spartz is committed to not letting America devolve into the oppressive state she lived under in Ukraine. It is imperative that we elect solid conservative leaders like her to stop the leftist attack on our freedom,” Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

“Since I have known Victoria, she has shown herself to be a true conservative, a real patriot who loves this country, believes in American Values, and stands firm in her beliefs. As a legal immigrant myself, I see the same love and respect for all this country has to offer in Victoria. She proved herself to be an advocate for conservatism as our State Senator and I know she will do the same in D.C.” – Melba Kiser, President – Hamilton County Grassroots Conservatives

“I support Victoria Spartz because she is intelligent, conservative and is strong in her love for her adopted country – the United States. Having grown up in the soviet dominated Ukraine she experienced life under communist –socialist rule. She knows the perils and dangers associated with Socialist governments. She does not want our country to move in that direction. Victoria’s experience as a citizen legislator in Indiana has taught her that government exists to serve the people and not the other way around. She will take her experience to Washington and provide Hoosiers in the 5th district with excellent representation.” – Jack Dearth, Former Legislative Liaison – Convention of States

“I have known Victoria Spartz for 10 years and consider her a refreshing and honest voice in the public discussion. Growing up in Communist Ukraine has given her a love and respect for freedom and the free enterprise system that must be preserved for our children against the current Democratic and Christina Hale rush to Socialism.” – Don Bauder, Former President – Hamilton County Grassroots Conservatives

“I’ve known Victoria Spartz since the conception of the Tea Party movement and have watched her continue to stand for the conservative principles of the Republican party. As a State Senator she was not afraid to do that and has steadfastly worked for party principles and correcting the course of the Republican party back to its roots. That is why my husband Dwight and I support Victoria for 5th District Congress.” – Sue Lile – Coordinator-Coalition of Central Indiana Tea Parties
