ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Amanda Adkins for Congress in Kansas

For Immediate Release: October 13, 2020

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Amanda Adkins for Congress in Kansas’ Third Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Amanda Adkins is exactly the sort of pragmatic conservative leader we need in Congress fighting to protect freedom and opportunity from the radical left. We proudly stand with Tea Party Senator Ted Cruz who said Amanda’s conservative agenda is ‘what the nation needs right now.’ Early voting begins tomorrow in Kansas, and with this race likely to come down to the wire, it is critical for conservatives to mobilize and help Amanda capture this seat from the extreme liberal incumbent.

“A working mom with an impressive record of success in both business and politics, Amanda has the knowledge and experience needed to clean up the mess in Washington and get Kansans working again. She climbed her way up the ladder at a major healthcare company, where she worked to reduce healthcare costs and improve patient care, demonstrating how free market innovation can address the problems in our healthcare system far more efficiently than government. This is in stark contrast to the incumbent who has campaigned for a government-run healthcare system that will destroy the best healthcare system in the world.

“As the former chairwoman of the Kansas Republican Party, Amanda’s leadership helped conservatives expand their majorities in state government. She has worked to elect conservatives who have practical ideas to make our economy strong and provide our citizens the opportunity to improve their own lives. She will fight in Congress to get America back on the path to prosperity through lower taxes, less intrusive government, and free market solutions that empower individuals, not government.

“Our economy is driven by the hard work and entrepreneurial spirit of working families and small businesses, not politicians or government bureaucrats. But Sharice Davids has other ideas. From opposing the successful tax cuts that put more money in Kansans’ pockets to embracing socialist programs like the Green New Deal and Medicare for All, she has supported government control over individual liberty and economic prosperity at every turn. That radical agenda would make Sharice right at home in California, but it certainly has no place in Kansas. To restore our economy and protect the Kansas way of life from the Democrats’ dangerous socialist agenda, voters must elect Amanda Adkins on November 3 and send Sharice Davids packing,” Russo concluded.
