Over 100 Member Tea Party Coalition Endorses Corey Stewart for Governor


Woodbridge, VA - Republican gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart today announced he received the endorsement of over one hundred members and leaders in the Tea Party movement.

"Corey's strong stand on vital issues like law and order, abortion, illegal immigration and constitutional government demonstrate he is not part of the establishment and he is a true conservative," said Charlie Hargis, Chairman of the Southwest Virginia Tea Party Patriots.

"Stewart's record shows that he stands up for what he believes and gets things done, " said Hargis, who worked as a trainer for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for the National Federation of Independent Business.

"Corey Stewart is fighting for the same conservative ideals I have been fighting for throughout my adult life,” said Dale Taylor, a founding member of Patrick Henry Tea Party in Hanover County. “Corey’s plan to cut taxes, cut spending, and reduce excessive government regulations -- especially on small business owners -- will provide greater opportunities to start and grow new businesses and boost the economy in every corner of Virginia.

“I am supporting Corey Stewart for governor because he will cut taxes and because southwest Virginia needs a governor who supports the coalfields parkway," said Don Waterman, vice chairman of the Southwest Virginia Tea Party Patriots. "Corey understands Virginia doesn't end at Roanoke, and it's clear he'll help us through the devastation of the Obama and McAuliffe years brought to southwest Virginia."

“The Tea Party fights for liberty and limited government so I am proud to have the endorsement of so many members of Tea Party groups across Virginia,” said Stewart. “The patriots in Virginia's Tea Party groups are in this fight for the most honorable of reasons -- they want to take their state back from the liberals in Richmond and D.C. who have taken us down such a dangerous path. It is an honor to fight alongside them, and I'm confident we will take back Virginia together.

Stewart has also been endorsed by Tea Party Nation, a prominent national tea party group.
