Tea Party Patriots Endorse Trump

This morning, the Tea Party Patriots’ super PAC endorsed Donald J. Trump for president.

Jenny Beth Martin, CEO of the organization, announced the news in a statement and on “Fox and Friends” Thursday morning.

“On the question of whether to support Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund — the super PAC affiliated with the largest Tea Party organization in the country — has made its choice,” Martin said in her statement.

“Hillary Clinton stands opposed to everything the Tea Party stands for, on the policy, political, and personal fronts. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has pledged to fight to uphold our core values. In making a choice between the two of them, there is really no choice at all — we choose Trump.”

The super PAC has plans to get out the vote for the Republican nominee and Republican Senate candidates in four key states: Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, and North Carolina.

Martin also said this in her statement: “The simple fact is this: With a Republican House and a Republican Senate and Donald Trump in the White House, Tea Party members and supporters will be far more likely to see our preferred policy choices enacted into law: We are far likelier to see the future of the Supreme Court protected, the borders secured, terrorism fought effectively, ObamaCare repealed, the national debt reduced, and the tax code reformed in such a way that the economy is energized and job growth soars. Consequently, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund endorses Donald Trump for president.”
