We the undersigned independent Iowa Tea Party, 912 Groups, and Patriot Leaders decline the invitation to attend Christine O’Donnell’s event  in Des Moines, Iowa , on December 3rd, and hereby express deep concern regarding the event and Ms. O’Donnell’s stated intent to influence and solicit an endorsement of a candidate for the Republican nomination to the Presidency from Tea Party Supporters.

Specifically of concern:

  • Ms. O’Donnell’s statements that Tea Partiers should unite regardless of which candidate wins.
  • Statements expressing her personal leanings to be 70% in support of Mitt Romney.
  • Statements regarding her personal donations to his campaign.

Further we reject her statement that “Indirectly my endorsement represents all of us”. It does not represent us at all.  Such actions and statements show disregard for our caucus process and our independence.

We do not understand precisely why she has chosen to come to Iowa under such pretenses, but our official stance is and has always been that the Tea Party should not endorse candidates. The Tea Party exists to educate, motivate and activate independent Patriots. We encourage everyone to participate in the electoral process and respect the rights of our members in supporting the candidates of their own choosing.
