Jenny Beth Martin

Tea Party Patriots
Co-Founder

Jenny Beth Martin was a former executive with The Home Depot and Mead Paper Company when she heard Rick Santelli’s famous “Stop the spending!” rant in 2009. In February 2009, following a series of massive expansions of the United States government by Congress under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Jenny Beth and several other concerned citizens formed the beginnings of the modern Tea Party movement. Making use of her already established social and blogging network, as well as an email list of contacts that she had built over years of political volunteer work, she contributed to the nascent Tea Party movement by reaching out to and mobilizing thousands of like-minded citizens. Since then, under the leadership of Jenny Beth Martin, Tea Party Patriots has grown to be the largest and most effective national umbrella group within the Tea Party movement. Jenny Beth Martin and Tea Party Patriots now use their network to reach millions of Americans every week with education and updates about fiscal responsibility, free market principles, and Constitutionally limited government. Because of her continual involvement in the major events that set the course of the United States government, Jenny Beth Martin is a frequent guest on almost every major television, radio, print, and online news outlet in America. In 2010 Time Magazine listed Jenny Beth Martin as one of the 100 Most Influential Leaders in the World. Her first book, Tea Party Patriots: The Second American Revolution, was published in 2012. She is a lifelong Georgian and has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Georgia. Jenny Beth is the mother of boy-girl twins.
