Sarah Palin Kicks Off Tea Party Showdown In Searchlight Nevada
Sarah Palin along with thousands of other tea party activists held a "Showdown In Searchlight" on Saturday calling for the ouster of Democratic lawmakers who voted for the health care reform legislation.
Searchlight (population: 700) is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's hometown. Tea Party organizers were predicting as many as 10,000 people to show up. Estimates vary but according to FOX News, a one mile row of vehicles heading for the rally was turned away due to traffic congestion.
The rally started at 12 noon and was scheduled to conclude at 2:30 p.m. and then move on to Henderson NV for the final event of the day. "Showdown In Searchlight" is the kickoff rally for a 42-city bus tour that will conclude on April 15 in Washington D.C.
In addition to Palin, other keynote speakers scheduled to appear were Joe the Plumber, Wayne Allyn Root-- 2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential Candidate, and Victoria Jackson of Saturday Night Live.
Join us for the Mega Rally that kicks off Tea Party Express III: Just Vote Them Out. Our first target: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid – he’s got to go! And we’re gathering thousands of patriots such as yourself for this giant tea party rally in Reid’s hometown of Searchlight, NV (population: 700). The event is free and will feature Gov.
