TPX Endorses Josh Mandel

Tea Party Express Proudly Endorses Ohio U.S. Senate Candidate Josh Mandel

“The perfect candidate to replace Sherrod Brown, Washington’s most liberal senator”

Cincinnati, OH – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest tea party political action committee, proudly endorses Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel for U.S. Senate, This is the organization’s fourth Senate endorsement this election cycle.

Chairman of the Tea Party Express, Amy Kremer, said, “It is the focus of the Tea Party Express to take conservative control of the U.S. Senate, and we are proud to announce our endorsement of Treasurer Josh Mandel in Ohio’s U.S. Senate race. Josh is the perfect candidate to replace Sherrod Brown, Washington’s most liberal senator according to National Journal.

“Sherrod Brown is grossly out of touch with the citizens of Ohio and Americans across the nation. Brown has consistently voted for more spending like ObamaCare and the failed $800 billion stimulus while ignoring the nation’s $15 trillion debt and growing budget deficit. We need conservative legislators in Washington who understand the dire fiscal situation of our nation and who are willing and able to fix it. As State Treasurer, Josh Mandel was recognized for successfully implementing conservative investment strategies and sharp management of the state’s finances. While our nation under Obama’s leadership was receiving a credit downgrade, Ohio received a credit upgrade thanks to Mandel!

“However, on top of getting our fiscal house in order, we must implement policies that encourage economic growth. Mandel not only campaigns as a conservative, he has the courage to legislate as one. As a city councilmember, Mandel successfully led the charge for one of the state’s only property tax rollbacks ever. He has been a proponent of oil and gas exploration in Ohio that could create up to 200,000 new jobs and has shown commitment to improving the business climate by cutting taxes and letting taxpayers keep more of their hard-earned money,” Kremer concluded.

Mandel is added to a distinguished list of Senate endorsements from the Tea Party Express for the 2012 election, including Attorney General Jon Bruning in Nebraska, Treasurer Richard Mourdock in Indiana, and former Solicitor General Ted Cruz in Texas

Tea Party Shifts to Stealth Mode for 2012 Elections

WASHINGTON -- The days of the Tea Party rallies seem to have given way to another movement.

Recently, the Occupy Wall Street crowd took the bulk of the ink in the national media.

So what happened to the Tea Party? They've shifted into stealth mode, working behind the scenes rather than in front of the camera.

"What we've seen is that people are working on a local and state level," said Amy Kremer, chairman of the Tea Party Express, a California-based group founded in 2009 to support the Tea Party movement.

"And it's not sensational journalism or sexy journalism and it's not the visual that you get when somebody is sitting behind their desk. But it's OK because people are engaged," Kremer said.

"They're affecting change on the state and local level, and we're going to come back together and we're going to have sweeping victories in 2012," she explained.

The grass roots goal now includes electing members to school boards, county commissions, and city councils.

In Pennsylvania, the York County Tea Party targets school waste. In Wisconsin, they're fighting against the recall of Tea Party Gov. Scott Walker. And in Florida, Tea Party groups took on a costly lightrail project.

Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., is a Tea Party favorite who believes the movement is here to stay.

"It's not going anywhere because it's rooted in the fundamental principles and values of what makes us exceptional and unique as a constitutional republic," he said.

That doesn't mean the rallies are gone for good. The Tea Party can manifest in different ways.

"Just because you don't see it does not mean that it does not exist," West explained.

"It's kind of like the old Steve McQueen movie, "The Blob." It can show up wherever it wants. It can generate energy, momentum, and then it can dissipate as quickly as it appeared," he said.

That blob could be coming to a Republican primary near you. Yes, Republican, because once again the Tea Party is targeting U.S. Senate incumbents who they believe are too moderate.

LOL@The Blob reference. An old, old movie!

Met Josh Mandel last fall.... He is diametrically opposite (is that redundant?) Sherrod Brown on issues and would make an awesome senator.

He looks like a 15 year old kid, he’ll be one of those people who look very young when they are old!
