Citizens Fund Endorses Mark Harris for Congress in NC-09


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 Harris for Congress in North Carolina’s 9th congressional district:

“In North Carolina’s 9th congressional district, Mark Harris is the conservative choice for Congress.

“Mark is a strong constitutional conservative, determined to go to Washington to help drain the swamp. He supports term limits for Members of Congress, and a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget with spending limitations. He is determined to repeal ObamaCare and ObamaCare’s special exemption for Members of Congress. He wants to build a wall on the southern border, end chain migration, implement E-Verify, and end the visa lottery. He opposes Common Core, and supports school choice. And he will defend the Second Amendment against all comers.

“Mark’s opponent, incumbent Republican Robert Pittenger, by contrast, is no conservative. He voted for the budget-busting omnibus spending bill, and scored an ‘F’ from Conservative Review, which rated him as the second most-liberal Republican of 10 in the North Carolina delegation. Mr. Pittenger votes as if he represents New Jersey, not North Carolina.

“Consequently, on behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, I am pleased to endorse Mark Harris for Congress, and I urge all voters in North Carolina’s 9th congressional district to make a plan to be a voter for him in the May 8 primary election and the November general election.”
