Tea Party Express Set to Endorse Richard Mourdock for US Senate at Press Conference Today
The Tea Party Express, considered one of the most aggressive and influential tea party groups, is in Indianapolis today to make a major announcement: the endorsement of Richard Mourdock for US Senate.
Earlier this year, the Tea Party Express announced Senator Lugar as a top target for electoral defeat, citing a his history of votes for wasteful spending, bailouts, and bigger government, combined with an attitude of disdain for the tea party movement.
Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer and Chief Strategist Sal Russo will give comments at the press conference today, and will discuss further plans to support Mourdock and ensure the defeat of Senator Dick Lugar.
Details of press conference today:
WHEN: Thursday, September 29 at 10AM
WHERE: Mourdock Campaign Headquarters
855-1 N High School Road
Indianapolis, IN 46214
The Tea Party Express has a reputation for unseating establishment Republicans in GOP primaries. The group backed Joe Miller for Senate, who defeated Lisa Murkowski and won the GOP nomination. The group also gave considerable backing to Christine O’Donnell in DE and Mike Lee in UT, who both defeated Republican incumbents for the nomination.
