Citizens Fund Endorses Chip Roy for a Second Term in Congress


ATLANTA, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin today released the following statement, announcing that the Super PAC associated with the nation’s largest Tea Party group has endorsed U.S. Rep. Chip Roy for a second term in the House of Representatives:

“Chip Roy has proven himself to be exactly what we hoped he would be – a solid, constitutional conservative with the courage of his convictions and a determination to make positive change in Washington.

“When we endorsed him two years ago, we said he had ‘the experience, the values, and the character to be an outstanding Member of Congress.’ His first term has proven us right – he has shown he has the experience and the values we thought he had, and he has shown himself to be an outstanding Member of Congress.

“Chip’s first term has demonstrated that – contrary to what the Establishment pols, fixers, and assorted hangers-on will tell you – one need not have established seniority to get things done. Even as a freshman member of the minority party in a legislative body whose rules favor the majority, Chip has demonstrated an ability to break through and push issues to the fore.

“Consequently, on behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, I am pleased to endorse Chip Roy for a second term in the Congress, and I urge all voters in Texas’s 21st congressional district to make a plan to be a voter for him in the November general election.”
