Willie Nelson Endorses Galbraith/Riley Gubernatorial Ticket

Today Willie Nelson and the newly formed Tea Pot Party officially endorsed its first U.S. political race; Independent candidates Gatewood Galbraith and Dea Riley for Governor and Lt. Governor of Kentucky. Nelson formed the party in November and since that time the grass roots movement has grown to boast more than 100 chapters nationwide.

Willie Nelson: “I am a longtime friend of Gatewood Galbraith. We crossed Kentucky in a car that ran on hemp fuel one time when he ran for governor, I think the teapot party should back him this time. He is a good man and will do a good job” -
Sincerely Willie Nelson

Gatewood Galbraith: “I’m so proud to have Willie’s endorsement again; he’s been a dear friend for many years. I’m equally proud to have the support of the Tea Pot Party members. We have an aroused electorate who are demonstrating their dislike of big government and our campaign in Kentucky this time is primed to succeed because of it. We've already received the endorsement of the United Mine Workers of America. This is the first time in their 120-year history that they've ever endorsed Independent candidates. We need 425,000 votes to win this election. We have a winning shot this time if we can raise significant money. We don't need as much as the other guys. We just need to show we are viable. Money does that. We’re asking Tea Pot Party members to contribute $25 each to our campaign. We all agree Now’s the Time... to affect the greatest change in government.

Dea Riley: “This endorsement marks the second major endorsement our candidacy has acquired thanks to the tireless efforts of Gatewood Galbraith. He has stood first and foremost for the rights of the people of Kentucky. I’m honored to serve to further Gatewood’s lifelong effort. We’re very pleased with the ever-growing success of our campaign.”

Gatewood Galbraith and Dea Riley: “We would like to thank Willie Nelson, the Tea Pot Party members who are making the idea of a better Kentucky a reality. Together we can restore Kentucky to prosperity.” 

Kimmy and future Kentucky Lt. Governor, Dea Riley
