Conservative political activists associated with the so-called “Tea Party” protests have started a cross-country bus convoy dubbed the Tea Party Express. They plan to stop in 33 cities.
Tea Party Express organizer Mark Williams, also a conservative talk show host, said there is a lot of dissatisfaction in the country right now focused on issues from health care reform to the national debt.
“We figured it’s about time for somebody to run to the front of the parade and say, ‘Follow me,’ and to try and herd all these cats into a semi-coherent message,” Williams said.
The Tea Party Express is scheduled to conclude Sept. 12 with a rally in Washington, D.C.
