Senator Rand Paul to Deliver Tea Party Response to SOTU

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest tea party political action committee, will host the Tea Party response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address directly following the Republican response by Senator Marco Rubio. Senator Rand Paul will deliver the Tea Party response at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Date: Tuesday February 12th, 2013
Time: Directly following the Republican response by Senator Rubio
Speaker: Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky
Location: The National Press Club – 529 14th St. NW, 13th Floor, Washington, DC 20045
Room: Lisagor Room

Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer said, “We are excited to have Senator Paul deliver the 3rd Tea Party State of the Union response next week. Americans are fed up with Washington politics that fail to address America’s fiscal woes. Tea Party Express has called for reducing the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government, and we have stood strongly for pro-growth policies to get the economy growing and job creation increased.

“Since the President has been re-elected, the debt has continued to skyrocket and unemployment has ticked up, but he has offered no solutions and has shown no leadership. In contrast, Senator Rand Paul has put forth solutions that would spur economic growth and rein in Washington’s out-of-control spending. We are excited that Senator Paul, a conservative leader and strong voice for the Tea Party movement, will be offering our perspective on the state of the union.

“We are happy to see that the Republicans have selected Tea Party conservative Senator Marco Rubio to deliver their response. Both Senator Rubio and Senator Paul will articulate pro-growth messages that will resonate with the American people” Kremer concluded.

Tea Party Express hosted the first ever Tea Party State of the Union response in 2011 with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, and Herman Cain delivered last year’s.
