Newt Gingrich to Co-Sponsor Tea Parties
Gingrich Throws His Name in the Ring
While the Tax Day Tea Parties have been taking the nation by storm, Newt Gingrich has decided to step up to the plate. In a video released today, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vKr95e5aIE, Gingrich shows his support with his own message. The Tax Day Tea Parties hosted by the DontGo Movement, TCOT, and Smart Girl Politics will occur around the country on April 15. Presently Michelle Malkin, Dana Loesch, GOPUSA, and Newt Gingrich are sponsoring the movements.
Gingrich says, "Just as the Contract with America brought an end to Democrat control of the House of Representatives in 1994, I see the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition as the vehicle by which conservative activists can bring about the end of Democrat control of the House of Representatives in 2010."
National Communications Director Juliana Johnson states, "This is a major turn for the Tea Parties. Newt Gingrich becoming a part of this is confirming to all of us that the Tea Parties are indeed being heard around the country and that the movement will continue to grow and grow."
The Tax Day Tea Parties were a result of Rick Santelli's call to arms for Republicans with the first batch occurring on February 27th with thousands of activists showing up in over 20 states across the country. The April 15th Tea Parties are expected to attract tens of thousands of people in over 140 cities.
