TPPCF Endorses Byron Donalds for 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. Byron Donalds for reelection in the seat representing Florida’s 19th Congressional District:

“Byron Donalds has proven himself a champion of empowering parents and broadening educational opportunity for children of all backgrounds. Even before he entered public service, he made it clear he wanted to make sure all children were given the same opportunities his mother made available to him.

“Even before he entered the state legislature, he and his wife helped establish a charter school in his community. He only stepped away from the school when he entered the legislature.

“He maintained his focus on education as a member of the Florida legislature and maintains it today as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

“Byron has been a strong opponent of teaching Critical Race Theory (CRT) in our elementary and secondary schools. When the Florida state legislature passed, and the governor signed into law, new legislation to prevent the teaching of CRT, Byron made a point of holding a press conference at a local school to call attention to the issue and let school administrators know that he would be monitoring them and working with parents to ensure their children were not taught inappropriately.

“In addition, he’s been champion for school choice. Says Byron, ‘School Choice Week is about celebrating children, empowering parents, and educational freedom. No child is the same, and each of them learns differently – which is why educational options are vital for every child to succeed and have access to a world-class education.’

“He is a strong supporter of securing our southern border and is fighting to reduce illegal immigration. He knows that as long as the border is not secure, the drug cartels will continue to run their human trafficking and drug importation networks, destroying lives on both sides of the border.

“He opposes President Biden’s plan to have federal taxpayers pay off tens of millions of student loans. He knows the Constitution does not give the president the legal authority to just give away taxpayer dollars like that. And he knows it’s just wrong – says Byron, ‘A family making less than $70,000 a year should NOT have to pay for the college debt for a family making over $200,000. This seems like common sense to me.’

“Consequently, on behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, I am pleased to endorse U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds for reelection to the seat representing Florida’s 19th Congressional District, and I urge all voters in Florida’s 19th District to make a plan to be a voter for him in the November general election.”
