Game Changer? Tea Party Express Endorses Christine O’Donnell

First let me start by saying that I’m working the eCampaign for Christine O’Donnell for U.S. Senate and I usually wouldn’t post about a press release here if I didn’t think it was newsworthy or a benefit to the discussion at a site that has been such a big part of my blogging career. Having been a member of this site for almost 5 years (4 years and 10 months) I hope you’ll cut me a little slack… this endorsement my prove to be one of the best things to happen to the conservative movement this cycle, it may prove to be the catalyst to other big endorsements that in turn may kill two birds with one stone — stop a liberal Republican from entering the Senate and stop the lame duck session agenda of Harry Reid. That’s right, this race is a special election and the winner will be seated Nov. 3rd!

Today, the Tea Part Express, announced it’s full endorsement of Christine O’Donnell for U.S. Senate in Delaware.  This powerful and welcome endorsement comes as Christine has experienced a wave of support and outstanding coverage from a number conservative groups, bloggers, media, and grassroots individuals from across the country.

The release stated:

“Christine O’Donnell has established a reputation as a strong voice for conservative constitutionalists principles consistent with the ideals of the tea party movement,” said Amy Kremer, Chairman of the Tea Party Express and one of the founding activists of the modern tea party movement.

and

“We’re so excited to see the strength behind Christine O’Donnell’s campaign,” said Joe Wierzbicki, Coordinator for the Tea Party Express.

“We long ago announced our intention to hold Mike Castle accountable for his failed record in Congress, and now we have an excellent shot to make sure he is defeated by a solid conservative candidate,” Wierzbicki said.

The full release can be seen below or as a web page here

You’ll note that many races this election cycle that have benefited immensely from a Tea Party Express endorsement, most notably, Sahrron Angle’s campaign for the GOP nomination to run against Harry Reid in Nevada. Tea Party Express supported Sharron while she was polling around 5 or 6 percent and were instrumental in her rise and eventual win.

Likewise, this endorsement may prove to be a pivot point in the campaign,  a game changer perhaps,  that will trigger other large organizations to throw their support and endorsements behind a common sense conservative who’s mission is to protect the Constitution for the people of Delaware as well as all freedom loving Americans.

We thank the Tea Party Express for their support and look forward to waging a great primary fight.

TEA PARTY EXPRESS ENDORSES CHRISTINE O’DONNELL

FOR U.S. SENATE – DELAWARE

The Tea Party Express (website: www.TeaPartyExpress.org) is pleased to announce its endorsement of Christine O’Donnell for U.S. Senate in Delaware.

O’Donnell is battling liberal Republican Congressman Mike Castle for the GOP nomination.

“Christine O’Donnell has established a reputation as a strong voice for conservative constitutionalist principles consistent with the ideals of the tea party movement,” said Amy Kremer, Chairman of the Tea Party Express and one of the founding activists of the modern tea party movement.

In contrast, Mike Castle has proven himself to be one of the most liberal establishment Republicans who has repeatedly turned against conservatives and those in the tea party movement.

“We’re so excited to see the strength behind Christine O’Donnell’s campaign,” said Joe Wierzbicki, Coordinator for the Tea Party Express.

“We long ago announced our intention to hold Mike Castle accountable for his failed record in Congress, and now we have an excellent shot to make sure he is defeated by a solid conservative candidate,” Wierzbicki said.

A recent Rasmussen Reports poll shows O’Donnell polling ahead of Democrat candidate, Chris Coons by a 41%-39% margin.

During the Tea Party Express’ first national bus tour, Wierzbicki declared to CNN and other media outlets that Castle was one of the worst-offenders who needed to be defeated by the tea party movement.  The CNN report can be found online here:  http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/09/08/tea-party-express-takes-aim-at-lawmakers/?fbid=iwlPMpEotVu

The Tea Party Express has been one of the leading tea party organizations impacting the 2010 elections.  The Tea Party Express helped propel Sharron Angle to the Republican nomination against Harry Reid (spending over $550,000 and providing her a massive boost in the polls).  The Tea Party Express similarly supported Utah Senate Republican primary victor, Mike Lee, as well as Massachusetts Republican Senator, Scott Brown – with over $350,000 spent in that race alone.

The Tea Party Express also launched a $250,000 “Defeat Bart Stupak” campaign and tea party rallies in Congressman Bart Stupak’s district immediately prior to his decision to resign from Congress.

Additionally the Tea Party Express supported Kentucky Republican Senate nominee, Rand Paul, and worked to defeat Pennsylvania Senate candidate Arlen Specter (first as a Republican and then as a Democrat) as well as working to defeat West Virginia Democrat Alan Mollohan.
