For Immediate Release
August 7, 2012
The South Florida Tea Party has endorsed Gineen Bresso for Congress. The following is a statement from the South Florida Tea Party concerning this endorsement.
“There is little doubt that Gineen Bresso is the most qualified candidate among a wide field of entries. Her CV screams lifelong Republican having been nationally recognized as a “Young Republican” and worked under various Republican administrations in every branch of government in both state and federal governments serving as a Senior Policy Advisor for Maryland Gov. Robert Ehrlich, as Chief Counsel and Director of Legislative Affairs for the House Administration Committee, and most recently as President George W. Bush’s Commissioner to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC). In her role as commissioner, she earned recognition as a fiscal hawk by slashing expensive junkets and reigning in expanding budgets going so far as to become a “whistleblower” by denouncing her own agency and testifying before Congress “spilling the beans” on a budget that went mostly to pay for administrative, bureaucratic overhead, rather than the EAC’s actual mission – helping make our elections better.
We should all demand that our congressional candidates have such a conservative pedigree like Bresso has prior to running for office.”
The Republican primary election to choose a nominee for Congress is on Tuesday, August 14th.
