Although the Constitution Party and the TEA Party do share similar principles, the Constitution Party is a legally recognized and registered political party, which has been in existence since 1992. The TEA Party is not a political party. It is an organization which can support candidates for political office but it cannot run candidates under their name. A TEA Party candidate must run as an independent or under the name of another political party with ballot access. We believe the Constitution Party is the philosophical home of the TEA Party, where candidates who are committed to the same constitutional principles as most TEA Party groups can run for office without opposition from within their own party. We encourage Constitution Party leadership and candidates to work with local TEA Party and other like-minded groups to re-establish the American Constitutional Republic in their communities and states. If your principles and beliefs match up to those of the Constitution Party, you are welcome here.
