ELECTION ALERT: Tea Party Express Endorses Dr. Rich McCormick for Congress in Georgia

For Immediate Release: May 26, 2020

SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Dr. Rich McCormick to replace retiring Rep. Rob Woodall in Georgia’s Seventh Congressional District.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Today we are excited to endorse patriot and conservative champion Dr. Rich McCormick to represent the constituents of Georgia’s Seventh District. We thank Rep. Woodall for his decade of service in Congress and commend his record of fighting for fiscal conservatism and economic freedom. We are confident that Dr. McCormick will be an effective and principled replacement.

With twenty years of service to the United States Marine Corps and Navy and a successful career as an emergency room physician, Dr. McCormick has dedicated his life to serving others. That selfless commitment to the greater good is precisely what is missing in Washington, DC, where the politics of opportunism too often prevail over the values and principles that make America great. Whether it’s combatting the COVID-19 pandemic, working for free market solutions to improve healthcare access and affordability, or getting government out of the way so our economy can rebuild, Dr. McCormick will not waver in his defense of American greatness and his commitment to conservative values. 

While the American people are suffering from unemployment and financial stress amid the fallout from COVID-19, Nancy Pelosi and her liberal friends in Congress are using the situation as an opportunity to advance a dangerous socialist agenda rather than working to combat the virus and get the economy moving again. This is precisely the sort of naked opportunism that has taken the place of principled leadership in Washington. We need committed conservative leaders like Rich McCormick in Congress to combat the march toward socialism and put the American people first as the nation opens for business once again, Russo concluded.

The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:

I’ve worked in politics for forty-eight years and I’ve seen every candidate at every level, Dr. Rich McCormick is the best congressional candidate I have ever encountered, by far and away. A total patriot who totally believes what he says, lives by his words, and has distinguished himself by his service. An emergency room doctor, Rich has been on the front line of the Covid-19 pandemic working tireless hours to stay involved in issues and concerns of the constituents of Georgia. I have never met anyone like him. He is absolutely the real deal. Always interested in business he earned an MBA in business and understands the concerns of small businesses during this unprecedented time. I cannot emphasis enough, Rich is the best candidate I’ve ever seen at this level. A Retired Decorated Marine, Retired Commander of the U.S. Navy, and a graduate of Morehouse School of Medicine, Rich is a man of integrity and honor. He is a rising star and the sky is the limit.

Rich is a super star who will be a super taxpayer champion, and small business champion, and a super leader. Rich is a wonderful man who will be a super star for the taxpayers when he gets to Washington. He has my full support for Congress.

  • Joe McCutchen, Taxpayer Champion, Ellijay, GA

I met Rich McCormick as a physician working in the ER. He is a good doctor, and overall good guy, and has a great history. A helicopter pilot in the Marines, and a Commander in the Navy, he is retired military. As a single dad raising his kids, Rich met and married Debra, a wonderful supportive wife, who is also a doctor of oncology, and together they are raising seven children. Rich is a man of great character and very conservative. Having been a staunch conservative all my life, no other candidate can represent my values better than Rich. He is a fiscal conservative and a hawk when he needs to be. At 37 he went to medical school, then followed that up with an MBA in business. He is hard working, and the people of Georgia can trust him to represent we the people. I’ve worked with Rich under very stressful situations and he never loses his composure or his focus. Without any hesitation I give my full support to Dr. Rich McCormick as the next Congressman from Georgia.

  • Dr. Marc Unterman, Member of Grassroots Steering Committee, Atlanta, GA

We love Dr. Rich McCormick. He is a wonderful emergency room doctor with a wonderful family. He is a man of integrity that puts his money where his mouth is. He will make an outstanding congressman, and will represent the values and concerns of the people of our district, as well as the whole of Georgia. He is a man of distinguished service and will serve the American people with honor.
