Sacramento, CA: Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is pleased to announce its endorsement of Nick Freitas for Congress in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District.
Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Nick Freitas is a staunch Tea Party conservative who understands that individual liberty and constitutional principles are the foundation of the United States. We are proud to stand with Tea Party Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul and Tea Party Congressman Dan Crenshaw in endorsing Nick to defeat liberal Abigail Spanberger in November.
“Leadership, public service, and patriotism distinguish Nick Freitas. Joining the U.S. Army immediately after graduating from high school, he retired after 11 years of service, including 2 tours of duty in Iraq as a Green Beret. At home, he has been involved in the community as a volunteer and as Chair of the Culpepper County Republican Committee. Nick is currently serving his third term in the Virginia House of Delegates, where he has fought Gov. Northam’s far left agenda and pushed for lower taxes and responsible state spending. He is exactly the conservative leader needed in Congress to fight the liberals’ calls for bigger and more expensive government. Instead, he will support the policies to get the economy moving again.
“When she was elected to Congress in 2018, Abigail Spanberger promised that she would be a moderate, but in reality, she votes almost in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi. The voters of the 7th District, which Donald Trump won in 2016, deserve better than her liberal hypocrisy. They deserve both honest leadership and the conservative solutions for which they supported President Trump. Nick Freitas won’t vote to send the nation further into debt with pork barrel spending like Spanberger has. He’ll cut out-of-control spending, push to make the Trump tax cuts permanent, and get the federal government out of the way. Then entrepreneurs and consumers can drive our economic recovery to make prosperity and opportunity a reality for all Americans,” Russo concluded.
