A federal super political action committee formed by the Tea Party Patriots in February 2013. The stated goals of the PAC are to defeat politicians they consider big spenders by contributing to their opponents, to fund ads that expose these politicians' support of "economy-destroying laws and regulations," and to organize volunteers to get out the vote. Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, said in a statement that the new PAC’s goal is to “produce a good ground game to compete with the left,” and pointed to tea party victories in the 2010 midterms, the defeat of the Democrats’ effort to recall Wisconsin governor Scott Walker in 2012, and the election of a Republican conference to the previously all Democratic Washington state senate.
