Tea Party Express to Feature Challengers to Bob Bennett at Salt Lake Rally

The Tea Party Express has a message for Utah Senator, Bob Bennett: our country deserves better.

Today at the Tea Party Express rally in Salt Lake City, conservative challengers to Bennett will be provided a platform to speak to the crowd and provide voters an alternative to Bennett.

“We’ve said all along that the problem in Washington is one of both Republicans and Democrats, and Bob Bennett is the epitome of the establishment mentality that has led this country astray,” said Mark Williams, Chairman of the Tea Party Express.

Here are the details on the Tea Party Express Salt Lake City rally:

SALT LAKE CITY: TUESDAY, MARCH 30 – 2:00 PM

Utah State Capitol
350 N Main Street
Salt Lake City, UT

Tea Party Express III: Just Vote Them Out national tour kicked off this weekend in Searchlight, NV where one of the largest political gatherings in Nevada history took place. The Tea Party Express will hold 44 tea party rallies across the nation, ending in Washington, D.C. for the Tax Day Tea Party on April 15th.

Update: From Andrea Shea King

Good Morning from Provo, Utah!

This is what I saw from my hotel room when I awoke this morning:

First Light – Provo, Utah

When we came in last night it was dark. So imagine my surprise to awake and see at first light the sight of these mountains looming in front of me. Wow!

Here’s another shot taken a little later:

I finally have a chance to enjoy uninterrupted internet service here at the hotel, and I’m taking full advantage of it, getting caught up on emails, and visiting sites like Doug Gibbs’ who has a terrific — and funny – write up about the rally in Searchlight. Be sure to go over and read it.

Time to get moving — the Blue Bus call is coming up fast to take us to our first Tea Party Express III rally this morning. More later!

I need a bail out! Won’t you rescue me! I need a bail out! Somebody help me please! – Lyrics from The Rivoli Revue’s Kay and Ron’s “The Bailout Song”, performed at the rallies.
