Tea Party Express Endorses Incumbents Rod Blum, Steve King, and David Young for U.S. Congress in Iowa
Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest grassroots Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of the three outstanding conservative Congressmen in Iowa: Rod Blum in the 1st District, David Young in the 3rd District, and Steve King in the 4th District.
Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “We are enthusiastic in our support of Congressmen Rod Blum, David Young, and Steve King, three courageous conservatives who have consistently stood up for Tea Party principles and pushed back against the Washington swamp. Each of them have the experience, knowledge, and fighting spirit to stand up to the elites and get the federal government off the backs of the American people.
1st District: “House Freedom Caucus Member Rod Blum achieved the American Dream by working his way through college and building a successful software business from nothing. Along the way, he saw firsthand how government too often works against individuals in their pursuit of that dream through bureaucracy and regulatory burdens. Ever committed to cleaning up Washington, Rod introduced legislation to cut Congressional pay when the budget is not balanced and protect whistleblowers from retaliation when exposing waste, fraud, and abuse within the federal government. His keen sense of protecting Americans’ liberty has earned him bi-partisan support in Iowa and in Washington.
3rd District: “Sixth generation Iowan David Young has intimate knowledge of the needs and concerns of the Third District. He understands that the federal government causes more problems than it solves, and he has proven his dedication and passion for the citizens of Iowa. As former Chief of Staff to Senator Chuck Grassley, David fought to protect Iowa business owners, like the radio station owner who was being bullied by the FCC. David knows how to cut through the red tape and allow our economy to grow, which is why he supported President Trump’s historic tax cuts and efforts to roll back job-killing regulations.
4th District: “Tea Party Congressman Steve King is an outspoken conservative whose consistent advocacy for upholding the rule of law and defending the Constitution has distinguished him among other members of Congress. Instilled with a strong work ethic by his parents, he built his successful construction business from the ground up. His frustration with high taxes and government overreach led him to run for the Iowa State Senate, where he served for six years before being elected to Congress. He has been an outspoken leader in efforts to cut taxes and regulations, fully repeal Obamacare, and dramatically decrease the size and cost of the federal government.
“The liberal elite politicians who claim the Tea Party is dead clearly haven’t been paying attention. Under the leadership of our Tea Party Congress and Tea Party-backed president, the economy has roared back to life, hardworking people have more money in their paychecks, oppressive big government regulations are being slashed across the board, and unemployment is the lowest it has been since the year 2000. If anything, the Tea Party is more alive in Congress than ever, and it has been a key driver of the conservative agenda that has brought America back from the stagnation and decay of the Obama era. The people of Iowa can keep that momentum going by reelecting Congressmen Blum, Young, and King in November,” Russo concluded.
