Someone once said that when the tea party and progressives are in agreement on an issue, the American people better wake up and pay attention. That time is now. Most Americans agree that TPA should be fast tracked only to the trash heap.
Louisville, KY – Amy Kremer announced today her resignation as Chairman of the Tea Party Express, effective immediately:
“This has been a really difficult decision for me, but the time has come for me to leave Tea Party Express. I’ve wanted to move in a different direction for a while, but also wanted to make sure that any change I make was also a positive change for the conservative movement.
There are candidates right now under the Republican establishment’s nose that would attract the very voters even the experts agree the GOP desperately needs. You would think Republicans and the broader conservative movement would be eager to spotlight examples of young people, singles, women and minorities who are running as Republicans. You would think right-leaning journalists would be falling all over themselves to cover a conservative candidate who has been fearlessly taking on the GOP establishment and challenging a 17-year incumbent and staunch ally of House Speaker John Boehner.
You would think that a young, conservative, black single mother who made a name for herself by fighting to elect Ted Cruz to the U.S. Senate would be a cause celeb for conservatives.
You would think that the conservative media would want to profile her or give her some kind of coverage, just as BET (Black Entertainment Television) has.
You’d think, but you’d be wrong.
