Tea Party Express stops in New Lenox, Illinois

The Joliet Herald News reports that nearly 5,000 people gathered at the New Lenox Village Hall on Monday, September 7th to greet the arrival of the Tea Party Express.  New Lenox, Illinois is a rapidly-growing village near the center of Will County near the I-80 interstate.

The Tea Party Express has a website where you can read about its message.  NPR also did an article on some of the Tea Party Express rallies held in California where several farmers  "protested a 2007 court ruling that cut water allowances to help a small fish that has been declining in numbers."

According to this NPR article, The Tea Party Express is funded by a California Political Action Committee, the "Our Country Deserves Better PAC".

Here is a video of the event that was posted on Youtube:
