Amy Kremer is an American political activist and the chair of the Tea Party Express.

Kremer previously worked for Delta Air Lines as a flight attendant, and became politically active in the Tea Party movement through Twitter and was involved in organising the first Tea Party protests in 2009.[1] She was a founding member of Tea Party Patriots, but defected to the Tea Party Express in October 2009.[2] During the 2010 midterm elections Kremer campaigned for candidates including Joe Miller, who ran for the U.S. Senate in Alaska.[1] In October 2010, The Daily Telegraph named her the "most influential" person in the Tea Party movement.[2]

During a September 2012 appearance on CNN's Starting Point, host Soledad O'Brien and others criticised Kremer for wondering whether President Barack Obama "loves America."[3]
