Tea Party Express Turns Eyes to Senate

Sen. Dick Lugar has been named a target of the Tea Party Express group. Without a presidential candidate to throw its weight behind, the group is focusing on winning the Senate majority.

Kremer said on Friday that contributions to the Tea Party Express have declined and the group has all but gone dark since the conclusion of a national bus tour in early September. The PAC raised $1.4 million from January to July, the most recent figures publicly available.

“Presidential politics is completely different than a midterm election, so we just have to figure out where we fit in,” she said. “Before you figure that out, you have to have a candidate and we don’t.”
