The Tea Party Express is vowing to keep up pressure on Congress to cut spending, and it’s zeroing in on moderate Republicans and at-risk incumbents as it seeks to end Democratic control of the Senate.

Amy Kremer, leader of the Tea Party Express, outlined her group’s top Tea Party Express, 2012 Electionsfive goals for the next election, according to U.S. News & World Report.

These include getting rid of moderate Republican senators, including Oympia Snowe of Maine and Dick Lugar of Indiana. The group is also targeting Democratic Sens. Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Debbie Stabenow of Michigan as it seeks to bring the upper chamber under Republican control.

Kremer said her group would continue to press Republicans to be more vocal on conservative issues. She pointed to Sen. Orrin Hatch as a good example of a prominent GOP figure doing more for the cause.

She said the Tea Party Express will also keep up the pressure on House Republicans to cut $100 billion from the budget this year.

And perhaps its most obvious intention: Evict President Barack Obama from the White House.

Kremer said she believes it will take a Republican candidate, not a third-party one, to beat the Democratic incumbent in 2012.
