Greetings from the tiny community of Tonopah, NV - population 2,624. The Tea Party Express is making a special effort to visit as many cities, towns and communities throughout Nevada because one of the "worst offenders" in Congress is U.S. Senator - and Senate Majority Leader - Harry Reid.
Yes, the same man who initially promised he would oppose a government-run healthcare plan who now has flip-flopped and is doing the 'politics-as-usual' routine of going against his word, and going against the will of the people. We're going to hand Sen. Reid a "pink slip" in November 2010! So here we are in Tonopah at our Tea Party Express rally and it's a fantastic crowd.
Who would have thought so many people would have turned out at 10:00 AM on a Tuesday morning?!?! This picture shows just one part of the crowd that spanned throughout the convention center:
And to top it off, we arrived at the Tonopah Convention Center and encountered falling snow - mostly just flurries - but snow nonetheless.
We're all very excited with this first event on Day 3... we've got great momentum and we're hoping it continues to grow and grow. With your help and support it will!
