Tea Party Express Endorses Burgess Owens for Congress in Utah
For Immediate Release: June 25, 2020
SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Burgess Owens for Congress in Utah’s Fourth Congressional District.
Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “The Fourth Congressional District is one of several Democrat-held seats that President Trump won in 2016. Conservatives must win this seat in order to take back control of the House and rip the gavel out of Nancy Pelosi’s hands. Patriot and Tea Party conservative Burgess Owens is just the candidate for the job.
“A Super Bowl champion, entrepreneur, and corporate executive, Burgess Owens has lived the American Dream by embracing the values of faith, hard work, and individual liberty. He understands that the federal government has a responsibility to reinforce these values instead of crushing them with confiscatory taxes and burdensome regulations. He will join with other conservatives in Congress to address our unsustainable national debt, eliminate wasteful spending, and get government out of the way of innovation and investment so Americans can get back to work.
“The radical left has shown that it will stop at nothing to destroy President Trump and bring his successful conservative agenda to an abrupt halt. Now that their impeachment witch hunt has failed, they have turned to stoking division and hatred among the American people during these challenging times. Utahns deserve to be represented in Congress by someone who will fight for commonsense solutions, not a Congressman like Ben McAdams who plays get-along with the liberal Democrat majority instead of sticking up for Utah values that have made America great. Burgess Owens will bring honor and integrity to Congress and stand strong against the Democrats’ socialist schemes,” Russo concluded.
The following are statements from local grassroots leaders:
“Burgess Owens will be a breath of fresh air in Washington. His honesty, integrity and passion for helping our youth represent Utah values perfectly” – Dave Monson, Former Utah Lt. Governor and U.S. Congressman
“Burgess Owens has been a tireless champion for second chances for children and is a true patriot. I have no doubt he will be a strong advocate as a U.S. Congressman” – Tim Ballard, Founder of Operation Underground Railroad
“Burgess is a humble man with a passion for helping at-risk youth. We need his championship values, experiences and principles to represent Utah in an at-risk Congress” – Derrin Owens, Utah State Representative
“Burgess Owens undeniably has the wisdom, insight, and clear vision needed to function as an influential advocate for freedom in the U.S. House of Representatives.” – Robert C. Oaks, Retired Four-Star General in the USAF
