Tea Party Protesters Hold Rally in Louisville
Louisville, KY – Hundreds of protesters rallied to oppose taxes and government spending, with some attendees supporting armed revolution and impeachment to remove elected officials from office.
For the most part, though, the event was a chance for Republican candidates for the Senate, the House and the mayor's office to campaign. Former county GOP chairman Brad Cummings says tea parties are essential opportunities for candidates to ask for votes.
"They want to hear a very specific message they want to make sure the candidates are tied to the Constitution, that they don't end up allowing Supreme Court Justices to legislate from the bench that kind of thing."
Most Republican candidates for congress and the mayor's office spoke at the event.
