10 state tour: Tea party bus rolls in the name of liberty - and the midterms
Question of the Day
Tea party organizers have not forgotten the power of the big campaign bus, rolling across the countryside and powered by the grassroots message.
And they’re rolling again. Not one but two major groups - the Tea Party Express and the Tea Party Network - have joined forces and embarked on a two-week heartland tour that take their bodacious vehicle through Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska and Minnesota - all billed as key battleground states.
They call it the “Fighting for Liberty Tour.” Lots of miles, but one message - and one common foe who is Democratic, and from Nevada.
“We are excited to get back out on the road in support of our conservative message of fiscal responsibility, economic growth and limited government. 2014 will be the year we rip the gavel out of Harry Reid’s hand and return it to the people,” declares an exuberant Taylor Budowich, executive director of the Express.
“If we want 2014 to be another 2010 wave election, energizing grassroots conservatives is key,” observes Todd Cefaratti, founder of the Net side of things.
“The only way we stop Harry Reid from continually offering blank checks to Barack Obama is by mobilizing Conservatives to fight the big-government policies that are destroying the fabric of our great nation.”
