Not ALL Tea Partiers Support Sharron Angle

More

Sharron Angle, who leads the polls in tomorrow's Nevada GOP Senate primary to oppose Harry Reid, is legitimately a Tea-Party-backed candidate. There are Tea Partiers in Nevada who are very much in favor of her. She is supported by the national group Tea Party Express.


But not all Tea Partiers think alike, and the Nevada primary features some other candidates with conservative appeal. Hence this e-mail today from the national group Tea Party Nation (which hosted Sarah Palin for its Nashville convention this winter) to its supporters this afternoon:
A message to all members of Tea Party Nation

While our policy has been and continues to be one of not endorsing a specific candidate in the primaries, but to have the candidates endorse the Tea Party Movement there has been so much misinformation about some races we feel we have to make a statement.

In Nevada, Sharon Angle is not the only conservative candidate running in this race.  Danny Tarkanian is every bit a conservative and constitutional patriot.  We can no longer stand aside and let misinformation about the Nevada race go uncontested. It's up to the voters in Nevada to decide whom they deem their best representative.

In California this same misinformation for the Governor's race is taking place.  

Our founding fathers did not stand idly by and neither can Tea Party Nation.  We believe each voter in each district should decide who best represents their values.  

Tea Party Nation 

It's a point Tea Partiers are quick to point out: the movement is highly localized and does not speak with one voice.
