Amidst some controversy over admission fees in the hundreds of dollars, the national Tea Party movement is holding its first convention in Nashville starting Thursday. Thousands of Tea Party activists are expected to attend but many devoted Tea Partiers are staying away. Larry talks with Tea Party activists and convention organizers about the convention’s goals and the future of the Tea Party as a political movement.


Mark Williams, Vice Chairman, Tea Party Express

Ashley Ingram, organizer for the largest Tea Party in LA last year, the Van Nuys Tax Day Tea Party.
