Tea Party Express Endorses Wayne King for Congress in North Carolina.
For Immediate Release: January 3, 2020
SACRAMENTO, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Wayne King in the race to replace retiring Rep. Mark Meadows in North Carolina’s Eleventh Congressional District.
Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Congressman Mark Meadows has been a stalwart fighter for conservative principles from day one. As chairman of the Freedom Caucus, he stood up to the Washington establishment and fought to restore the principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility that have made America the ‘shining city on a hill’ that Ronald Reagan spoke of. While we are sad to see him leave Congress, we thank him for his dedication to the conservative movement and wish him the best in his future endeavors.
“We cannot think of a better person to succeed Congressman Meadows than his Deputy Chief of Staff, Wayne King. Wayne has served alongside the congressman since the day he was elected, leading his efforts to support the overwhelmingly successful Trump tax cuts, dismantle the Obamacare disaster, and eliminate wasteful government spending. The former Vice Chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party, Wayne has been an active advocate for the people of North Carolina for his entire career. Voters in the eleventh district will be served well by Wayne’s dedication and commitment to the conservative principles that have made America great.
“Liberals are hoping 2020 will be a referendum on the Trump presidency. We can only hope that is the case. Under the president’s leadership, America’s economy has roared back to life, onerous government regulations have been rolled back, and the American people are keeping more of their hard-earned money in their pockets. President Trump’s record speaks for itself, and Americans of all stripes will have this in mind when they step into the ballot box in November. Wayne King will be a staunch supporter of the president’s Tea Party agenda in his second term,” Russo concluded.
Andy Surabian, former Special Assistant to President Trump, said the following: “I can’t think of a better person to carry on the conservative legacy of Rep. Meadows in the House than Wayne King. Wayne is MAGA to the core and an unabashed fighter for conservative principles and the President’s America First agenda. Supporters of both the President and Rep. Meadows should immediately unify behind his candidacy, he’s the real deal.”
