Tea Party isn’t dead. They are waiting to make a noise after Super Tuesdayby Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Feb. 04, 2012, under 2012 Presidential elections, Anybody But Mitt Romney for 2012, Beware of the Sonoran Alliance, female-led political movement, Hispanic Latino Vote
It looks like the Arizona “Tea Party A-team” is opening up another office in Maricopa County so they can work towards being more extreme. The Tea party has been silent but don’t you worry, they are biting their tongues til after Super Tuesday then we will hear them clamoring about.
From the Tea Bag People:
The Arizona 2012 Project opened new offices at 3375 E. Shea Boulevard this week to an overflow attendance. The comfortable meeting facilities include a huge meeting area with seating for more than eighty persons that can be quickly converted to work space for volunteers. Included in the floor plan is ample room for campaign training sessions to come. A formal Open House is planned for later in the month.
Later, speaking for the Arizona 2012 Project, Chairman Ron Ludders reacted to Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock’s withdrawal from the race to re-election saying, “We have been encouraging Councilman Brock to make a decision to take some personal time away from the political grind. Unburdened from having to scrape together a campaign in the face of growing grassroots political pressure, Fulton will be able to focus on his more immediate personal needs. We wish him every success.”
Asked about that pressure, Ludders reminded, “It is obvious that Conservatives in general and the Tea Party movement in particular have awakened. We’re no longer content with simply voting for the lesser of two evils and are learning how to use our numbers to affect policy, legislation, and candidate selection. Look at the last two G.O.P. mandatory meetings in Phoenix. At the county meeting, the ‘Tea Party’ slate won with a first ballot victory boasting vote margins of almost 3 to 1 over the entrenched ruling class Republicans. The state meeting echoed growing Tea power by handily electing Chairman Morrissey’s slate while rejecting that ticket’s Third Vice-Chairman candidate, John Rhodes, who is known for his antipathy toward the Tea Party movement.”
Continuing his comments, Ludders informed, “The Arizona 2012 Project is becoming known as ‘The Tea Party A-Team’ because we recruit serious people who want to get deep into the political weeds as activists and advocates. That effort is paying off with a new legion of dedicated Conservatives working more closely with their legislators both publicly and behind the scenes.”
