Tea Party Endorsed Candidates Dominate Election 2014

11.05.2014

Tea Party leaders are celebrating their victories at the polls. An examination of the results of the 2014 general elections by the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights reveals that Tea Party endorsed candidates continued to outperform at the ballot box this year. National Tea Party groups, most notably FreedomWorks and Tea Party Patriots, endorsed 80 candidates for federal office in yesterday’s general election. Tea Party endorsed candidates ended up winning 58 of those races—a 73% winning percentage.

The House

Despite all the talk of the “establishment” successfully beating back Tea Party challenges earlier in the year, Tea Party endorsed candidates for the House of Representatives won 41 and lost just 18 races during the primaries—a 69% winning percentage. While it received scant attention this year, Tea Party victories in the primaries gave them a significant footing heading into November.

In the general election, of the 59 Tea Party endorsed candidates in 30 different states, 48 won while only eleven lost – an 81% success rate. Of the eleven that lost, several lost to fellow Republicans. For instance, Tea Party favorite Clint Didier in Washington State’s 4th Congressional District race who was defeated by Republican Tom Newhouse.

    You sure do not hear this much! This article needs to be sent to every single rep in both parties, definitely Boehner and crew…how about our Governor? Do not listen to whiny “patriots” who do not feel this election was just not good enough. This was not about party, except for the obvious criminals. I am impressed with hyper awareness and attention to voter fraud, paper ballots, etc. And those we did not want (St.Louis) need to have a heavy leash attached!
    I am impressed and blessed. Be prepared.
