The nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, Tea Party Express, recently revved up for its ninth national bus tour, dubbed “Fighting for Liberty.” The tour began in Fort Myers, Florida on Saturday, April 19th and is heading west with stops in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas.
The buses will then head north, rallying in Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota. The states were selected because of key battles for House and Senate seats. The tour is starting in Florida where a hotly contested special election for a vacant House seat is being held.
The Tea Party Express rallies will include a number of prominent conservative commentators, entertainers and candidates seeking federal office. Announcements regarding speakers and entertainers will be released throughout the week.
At the stops in Kansas, Dr. Milton Wolf, will be a featured speaker. Dr. Wolf is campaigning against Republican incumbent Senator Pat Roberts.
Tea Party Express has endorsed Dr. Wolf because he shares their conservative philosophy on issues like “out of control spending, higher taxes and the intrusiveness of government, including ObamaCare.”
In a statement on the Tea Party Express website, Executive Director Taylor Budowich said the team is excited to get back out on the road in support of that 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 stop the destructive policies of President Barack Obama’s Administration, Budowich said.
“We will do that by rallying and engaging conservative Americans from across the country on issues that are important to us all. While we appreciate the major advertising being done by many different political action committees, our their focus is on rallying grassroots conservatives to become more involved in the political process,” Budowich concluded.
