“JOE THE PLUMBER” TO JOIN “SHOWDOWN IN SEARCHLIGHT” THIS MARCH 27TH
Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, better known as “Joe The Plumber,” is the latest speaker to be confirmed for the “Showdown in Searchlight” event that kicks off the Tea Party Express III: Just Vote Them Out tour (website: www.TeaPartyExpress.org).
Wurzelbacher joins the following confirmed speakers at this major event:
- 2008 Republican Vice Presidential nominee, Sarah Palin
- 2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee, Wayne Allyn Root
- Nationally syndicated radio talk show host, Roger Hedgecock
- Saturday Night Live alumnus, Victoria Jackson
- Conservative media icon, Andrea Shea King
- Conservative Columnist & Commentator, Andrew Breitbart
The “Showdown in Searchlight” tea party rally takes place at “High Noon” on Saturday, March 27th in Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s tiny hometown of Searchlight, NV (population: 700) in the southern Nevada desert.
Wurzelbacher made the following comment about his participation in this huge effort:
“It wasn’t just the Republican and Democrat parties that failed our country. We The People failed by not holding our elected officials accountable when they took us down the road of massive deficits, big government and a loss of our liberties.
“It’s time for American’s to stand up and become their own lobbyists and I am happy to join the Tea Party Express as one of many ways I am active in helping to fight to take our country back.”
Wurzelbacher gained international notoriety when he questioned then-candidate, Barack Obama, about his economic plan during the 2008 presidential campaign. Obama’s “spread the wealth” response panicked conservatives who thought the comment reeked of a socialist attitude.
Since becoming an iconic figure in the 2008 presidential election, Wurzelbacher wrote the book, “Fighting for the American Dream” and has been one of the most high-profile supporters of, and participants in, the tea party movement. Wurzelbacher has spoken at tea party rallies across the nation including Tea Party Express events previously held in Brighton, Michigan; Cheyenne, Wyoming; Fort Collins, Colorado; and Denver, Colorado.
Joe will also be speaking at 4 additional Tea Party Express rallies on this current tour including events in Arizona and Wisconsin.
Tea Party Express III: Just Vote Them Out national tour kicks off March 27th in Searchlight, NV with 42 tea party rallies across the nation, ending in Washington, D.C. for the Tax Day Tea Party on April 15th.
