Tea party poised for big wins in Texas GOP runoffs – Houston Chronicle
Perhaps news of the Tea Party’s demise has been greatly exaggerated. They’ve had some successes in primaries in a few other states as well with a big one coming up in Mississippi. Several cocktail party Republicans have been removed in exchange for libertarian leaning candidates. The headwinds are so strong though considering both major parties are out to destroy them.
Regardless, there are a couple of very good Tea Party organizations that have made a significant impact in several elections, make sound tactical decisions and run very lean so that the majority of your donation goes to campaign work and not to maintaining the organization. Tea Party Patriots and Freedom Works are both excellent organizations and a $10 donation every few months really does some good.
