List of Politicians Affiliated With the Tea Party Movement

The following American politicians are affiliated with the Tea Party movement, which is generally considered to be conservative, libertarian-leaning,[1] and populist.[2][3][4] The Tea Party movement is a political movement that advocates reducing the U.S. national debt and federal budget deficit by reducing U.S. government spending and taxes.[5][6] It is not a single, formal political party,[7] but is represented by activist groups such as the Tea Party Patriots and the Tea Party Express. However, research has shown that members of the Tea Party Caucus vote like a third party in Congress.[8] The Tea Party Caucus was the primary vehicle for the movement in Congress.[9] The Liberty Caucus and Freedom Caucus are closely associated with the Tea Party movement.[10][11]
