Philly Tea Party group sends 28 buses to D.C. Rally

From Independence Hall Tea Party Association:
Over 1,500 members and friends of the Independence Hall Tea Party Association are riding on 28 buses departing from various locations in the region to attend today's Glenn Beck Restoring Honor Rally in Washington, D.C.

"From Princeton Junction to Downingtown, from Quakertown to Christiana, tea partiers are clamoring to attend this event," said Association President, Teri Adams. "The demand was such that we could have sent 40 buses. Our phones were ringing off the hook with people desperately wishing to attend this rally. We received calls from as far away as Arizona and California."

Over 100,000 people are expected to attend from all over the nation.

"People are really connecting with Mr. Beck's message," said Ms. Adams. "He's calling upon the nation to restore honor and character as virtues."

Speakers at today's rally include Dr. Martin Luther King's niece, Dr. Alveda King, and Sarah Palin, among others. "We have spent the whole month preparing for this rally. We know it will be a momentous occasion," said Ms. Adams
