TEA PARTY EXPRESS VISITS LISA MURKOWSKI'S KETCHIKAN OFFICE

"Please Stop Calling Tea Partiers Racist" Group Pleads

The Tea Party Express (website: www.TeaPartyExpress.org) paid a visit to Senator Lisa Murkowski's office in Ketchikan today as part of a campaign swing through Alaska for Murkowski's opponent in the U.S. Senate race, Conservative Republican Joe Miller.

The delegation led by Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer, included Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee (mother of the first U.S. Navy SEAL killed in Iraq), Navy SEAL Benjamin Smith, Tea Party Express Coordinator, Joe Wierzbicki, Tea Party Express Political Director, Bryan Shroyer and Tea Party Express Coalitions Director, Dustin Stockton.

The group expressed concern over Senator Murkowski's denouncement of the Tea Party Express as a "racist" organization - smearing over 400,000 Tea Party Express members (including over 1,000 here in Alaska) in the process.

Additionally, the delegation explained why the Tea Party Express has come out against Murkowski's re-election and is instead supporting Conservative Republican Joe Miller in the U.S. Senate race. Those issues cited included Murkowski's support for the bank bailouts, her Co-Sponsorship of Cap & Trade, her support for amnesty for illegal aliens, her support for Barack Obama's secondary stimulus and her support for taxpayer-funded abortions.

Senator Murkowski's office was represented by Staff Assistant Sherrie Slick, a veteran of the Republican political establishment. To her credit, Sherrie Slick was professional, gracious and courteous.

The Tea Party Express explained to Sherrie Slick that no matter who wins the race for U.S. Senate we cannot continue the out-of-control federal spending and erosion of our Constitution by the federal government.

"We were grateful for the courtesy extended by Sherrie Slick on behalf of Senator Murkowski, but make no mistake, the sins of Senator Murkowski are numerous, and we plan to hold her accountable in the upcoming August 24th election for U.S. Senate. It's time that Alaskans had a U.S. Senator who represented them better than Senator Murkowski has. Alaska deserves better," said Bryan J. Shroyer, Political Director for the Tea Party Express.
