Tea Party Express's Steelman Endorsement Angers Local Groups

March 23, 2012

There are shades of Nebraska in Missouri, where the Tea Party Express's endorsement of former Treasurer Sarah Steelman has angered local conservative activists. The St. Louis Beacon:

But a number of Missouri tea party groups disagree and have issued a statement disavowing the Tea Party Express' action.

"The endorsement of Sarah Steelman for U.S. Senate by the Tea Party Express does not represent the consensus of tea party groups and conservative grassroots organizations that exist in Missouri, neither does the Tea Party Express represent the positions of tea party groups as a whole," the 18 groups said in a joint release.

...

Later, two other area tea party-aligned groups -- the Missouri Conservative Coalition and the Gateway Grassroots Initiative -- issued similar statements disparaging the Tea Party Express' action.

Last May, I wrote about something similar in Nebraska, where the TPE endorsed Attorney General Jon Bruning, ticking off local tea party activists who felt left out of the loop.
