Tea Party Express Backs Mary Thomas to Challenge Gwen Graham
Tallahassee attorney Mary Thomas reeled in the support of the Tea Party Express as she continues her bid for the Republican nomination to challenge U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham, D-Fla., in November.
Tea Party Express Executive Director Taylor Budowich made the endorsement on Tuesday morning.
“It’s with great pleasure that I am announcing Tea Party Express’ endorsement of Mary Thomas for Congress," Budowich said. “Voters of Florida’s newly formed 2nd Congressional District deserve a strong, conservative voice in Washington, D.C., and that’s just what Mary will provide.
“Mary Thomas has an impressive background of service to the state of Florida and voters throughout North Florida,” Budowich added. “During her time serving as legal counsel in Governor Rick Scott’s administration, Mary represented Florida during the negotiations that followed the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. Mary also worked to resolve issues affecting military installations within Florida’s panhandle.
“But on top of her professional background, voters will be pleased to learn about Mary Thomas’ passion for limited-government and pro-growth policies. Mary supports a complete overhaul of the tax code, which includes eliminating the IRS. She also wants to bring some of Florida to D.C. by completely removing wasteful and ineffective government agencies, just like Governor Scott has done,” Budowich continued. “We are glad to be joined by conservatives throughout Florida’s 2nd Congressional District in supporting Mary Thomas.”
