Kerry Bentivolio
Republican for U.S. Congress - Michigan District 11 Founder Endorses Kerry Bentivolio for U.S. Congress

Kerry Bentivolio is clearly the TEA Party favorite for U.S. Congress in the Michigan District 11 race. Bentivolio has been endorsed by numerous Michigan TEA Party groups including the Troy Area TEA Party, the TEA Party Patriots of Western Wayne County, and the North Oakland TEA Party. Bentivolio also has the endorsement of FreedomWorks PAC, Erick Erickson of, the TEA Party Express, and now has the endorsement of founder, Michael Kinzie.

Kinzie said of Bentivolio, “Kerry Bentivolio is a man who will be an excellent addition to the growing number of true constitutional conservatives in the U.S. Congress. Bentivolio will fight to restore fiscal sanity to the out of control spending in Washington. He understands that overregulation and bureaucratic red tape have virtually shut down our economy and will take the necessary steps to help get the government out of the way of job growth and get this economy pointed in the right direction. Bentivolio is without a doubt the right man for the job of representing the citizens of Michigan’s 11th District in the U.S. Congress.”

Bentivolio faces Democrat Syed Taj in the general election on November 6, 2012. Bentivolio is a veteran of Vietnam and Iraq, former teacher, and business man.  He is a firm supporter of the 2nd Amendment as evidenced by the endorsement of the Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund.

Kinzie concluded his statement with, “Kerry Bentivolio is a firm believer in individual liberty, fiscal responsibility, free markets, and constitutionally limited government and as such, I consider it an honor to endorse Kerry Bentivolio for U.S. Congress.”

What the American Dream Means to Me

Americans who work hard and have good ideas should be able to succeed in life. They should be able to keep the fruits of their own labor. Innovators should be free to innovate and profit from their inventions. Those who take risks should be able to reap their rewards. It seems today that this Dream is slipping away. You see, the government should protect our rights to innovate and work hard but nowadays, the government seems to just build impediments to our success. The government should not promote the lack of productivity. The American Dream isn’t really about the government at all. It is about the individual making his or her own way with the government staying out of the way.

To promote the American Dream and help other Americans attain it, I will work to:

  • Cut Taxes

  • Cut and Cap Spending

  • Balance the Budget

  • Repeal ObamaCare

  • Promote Affordable Energy and Allow Domestic Energy Production

  • Promote Accountability and Transparency in Congress and the Bureaucracy

  • Protect Americans with a Strong Domestic National Defense

  • Support those Who Serve Our Country and Encourage Others to Serve

  • Prevent Government from Picking Winners and Losers

  • Secure our Borders

  • Protect the Sanctity of Life

  • Promote State Sovereignty and Local Choice

  • Oppose Federal Taxation of Inaction as Established in the ObamaCare Ruling

  • Protect Individual Liberty as the Bedrock of Our Free Society


TEA Party Express Endorses Bentivolio


Livonia, MI – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest tea party political action committee, proudly announced their endorsement of Kerry Bentivolio today in Livonia, MI.

Bentivolio has been a strong supporter of the tea party movement and enjoyed much of their support in his primary campaign. An activist for Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign in 1980 to speaking at the Tea Party Express rally earlier this year, Bentivolio has been engaged in the political process to bring needed reform to Washington.

Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer said, “Kerry Bentivolio is a strong constitutional conservative that is ready to bring a fresh perspective to Washington. His experience in the military, education, and business give Kerry a real-world perspective that is in short supply in Washington.

“He understands that in order for the economy to grow, Washington needs to get out of the way. That’s why one of his top priorities is reforming the tax code so it’s flatter and simpler. He also has recognized that thanks to the politicians in D.C., our federal government has run amuck and now lives outside the limits laid out in our constitution. It’s time we start reining in the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government.

“Kerry’s steadfast commitment to restoring the constitution and implementing pro-growth free market policies make him a perfect candidate to represent Michigan’s Congressional District 11,” Kremer concluded.
