We received this in an email yesterday from two of our national coordinators for the Tea Party Patriots, Jenny Beth Martin & Mark Meckler. Jenny Beth & Mark were in MA for Brown's earth shattering victory and below are some of their thoughts....
From Jenny Beth --
Tea Party Patriots and others involved in the tea party movement have asked Congress to listen to us. In the past year, we, the people, have demanded accountability. We, the people, demanded principled leadership. And, we, the people, demanded that our elected officials represent us.

And from Mark --
Everyone who watches the news knows what’s taking place here in Massachusetts and what’s at stake as far as future policy and legislation.

For all of our members.... I hope you see that YOU really are the Heart & Soul of the Tea Party Patriots!
