Tea Party Event Update

Tea Party of America Stage

Indianola, IA – The Tea Party of America’s Restoring America event has just been drawing a growing crowd. Given the thunderstorm that has just rolled in, drenching people unprepared for the weather, many are currently seeking shelter in tents and in the vehicles in the parking lot.  Undeterred, many  die-hard Tea Party members continue to brave the downpour, with rain jackets, umbrellas, and anything else they can find.

At present, the event is still more than 15 minutes from its scheduled start, and the One Nation tour bus is on the grounds.  Find some early photos posted below(click for larger view):

    Thanks Mark……..hope the rain doesn't dampen the crowd from around Iowa – I know all the C4Ps & O4Ps will stand in the rain…….hope somebody gets some shots of the crowd from above somehow – to better estimate the showing……..esp when Sarah is to speak.

    Oh – Mark….don't wash that hand yet – til I get to touch the hand that…… :)

    Hope it is a great day – Krista and her song will definitely add to things just right.

    Mark, what is your best guess on the number of people there today? I am watching via C-SPAN but they have not shown very many wide angle shots.

      It was thousands. I don't have a count either, but given the torrential downpour that went on and on for more than an hour before Governor Palin's speech, I'm astonished the crowd was as large as it was. It was amazing.
