Tea Party Express endorses Neumann


One of the national Tea Party groups has endorsed Mark Neumann in the Republican U.S. Senate primary.

The Tea Party Express says it’s backing former Congressman Neumann, and will soon air a TV ad for the candidate. The Tea Party says it will also bring a bus to Wisconsin to use at community rallies and as a phone bank. Chairwoman Amy Kremer says Neumann is a true conservative who will protect constitutional freedoms, and as a home builder, Neumann is a businessman who knows how to create jobs. Kremer also says Neumann isn’t afraid of attacking spending in Washington.

Kremer won’t say if she considers Senate candidate and former Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson as part of that good old boy network.

Senate candidate Eric Hovde points to his backing from another Tea Party group. Thompson and Hovde have led most polls for the Republican Senate primary, but there appears to be a large number of people undecided, so all four Republican Senate contenders say they’ll be out campaigning this weekend and all the way to the August 14 election.
