The McHenry County Tea Party sent the following e-mail regarding endorsements:
McHenry County Tea Party November 2010 Candidate Endorsements
We have released our list of candidates that we believe will fulfill our mission, to promote and defend the Constitution, our freedom and liberty, limited government, sound money, and free markets.
We understand there will be concern about 3rd party candidates taking away votes from the Republican or Democratic candidates. In the offices we chose 3rd party candidates, we believe in voting for principal over party. We do not believe in the lesser of 2 evils.
Once in office, it is our responsibility to hold these candidates to their principles.

Our Mission: We will promote and defend the Constitution, our freedom and liberty, limited government, limited spending, sound money, and free markets.
