Citizens Fund Endorses Ted Budd for Congress in NC-13


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 Ted Budd for Congress in North Carolina’s 13th congressional district:

“In North Carolina’s 13th congressional district, the choice for conservatives is clear – Ted Budd for Congress.

“Since coming to the Congress in 2017, Ted has distinguished himself as a solid constitutional conservative. He scored a strong 94 percent on the Conservative Review scorecard, ranking second only to House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows in the North Carolina delegation. He scored an even stronger 95 percent on the Club for Growth scorecard, and, as a gun shop owner, he is an avid defender of the Second Amendment.

“Just as importantly, he has shown he has the strength to stand up to his party’s leadership when necessary. He recently demonstrated that strength when he voted against the budget-busting omnibus spending bill.

“Consequently, on behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, I am pleased to endorse Ted Budd 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.”


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
