Citizens Fund Endorses Mark Sanford in SC-01

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 Mark Sanford for Congress in South Carolina’s 1st congressional district:

“In South Carolina’s 1st congressional district, the choice for conservatives is clear – Mark Sanford.

“Mark has been a strong constitutional conservative ever since he first came to Congress. He is determined to stop spending money we don’t have, and has worked to reduce the size and scope of government. He supports reducing taxes to leave more money in the hands of those who earn it, and to spur the economic growth necessary to create better and better-paying jobs.

“Mark is determined to repeal ObamaCare, and is one of only four incumbent Republicans to sign on as cosponsors to a bill repealing Congress’ illegal special exemption from ObamaCare. Our members and supporters, who strongly oppose both ObamaCare and Congress’ illegal special exemption from it, especially appreciate his strong stand.

“Most importantly, he’s been endorsed by our grassroots supporters in South Carolina’s 1st congressional district.

“Consequently, on behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, I am pleased to endorse Mark Sanford for Congress, and I urge all voters in South Carolina’s 1st congressional district to make a plan to be a voter for him in the June 12 primary and the November general election.”

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund is committed to equipping grassroots activists at the state and local level with the tools and resources needed to hold elected officials and government accountable and elect new and qualified candidates.  For more information, visit
