TPPCF Endorses Eric Schmitt for U.S. Senate


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 Eric Schmitt for a seat in the United State Senate:

“Eric Schmitt will be a strong conservative voice in the Senate of the United States.

“Eric is committed to securing our nation’s borders. As Missouri’s Attorney General, he filed a successful lawsuit against the Biden Administration’s decision to terminate President Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy. Then he filed another successful lawsuit against the Biden Administration’s decision to terminate the use of Title 42 authority to protect our nation. In the U.S. Senate, he will continue his work to end illegal immigration.

“Eric opposes President Biden’s immoral scheme to use taxpayer dollars to pay the student loan debt of tens of millions. ‘Why should the truck driver pay for the Ivy League Doctor’s unpaid debt? This shouldn’t be working folks’ burden,’ he said. ‘The Democrats are the party of, by and for the elites.’

“He is committed to ensuring that parents have a say in their children’s education. ‘Parents,’ he said, ‘have every right to play a central role in their children’s education, are entitled to critical information about what is being taught and must have the tools necessary to take action when they feel that the quality and content of how their children are being educated does not align with the values and expectations they expect and deserve.’ As Missouri’s Attorney General, he introduced and promoted a Parents’ Bill of Rights, and later launched the Students First Initiative to increase transparency in schools.

“He has demonstrated his commitment to the Tea Party values of personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future. He wants to reduce taxes and cut regulations to stimulate the kind of economic growth we’re going to need to pay back our massive national debt, and he knows that the only way we’ll get inflation under control is if we stop the reckless spending.

“Consequently, on behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, I am pleased to endorse Eric Schmitt for a seat in the United States Senate, representing Missouri, and I urge all voters in Missouri to make a plan to be a voter for him in the November general election.”
