Tea Party movements across the country feel that the GOP may be ignoring the movement or at least delaying until the republican organization can figure out how to deal with the Tea Parties:
“I have called into the RNC many times, and they still haven’t called me back,” said Dale Robertson, head of TeaParty.org, which he claims has upwards of 7 million members. “I’ve called them, lots of times. I called them this morning. I called them yesterday. It’s like they ignore you as they try to figure out a strategy on how to defeat you.”
However, after the New York 23 election, one of the bigger voices of the GOP may be seeing the power and value of the Tea Party Movment:
“It’s important for Republicans to recognize they can only be a majority if they find a way to absorb the tea party movement and absorb the anger against Washington and against big government,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told The Washington Times. “That’s the only way the Republicans can prosper in the next few years.”
Gingrich goes on:
“Everywhere I go around the country, I talk with tea party leaders, and I think it’s absolutely imperative for Republicans and tea party people to find common ground.”
The common ground is solid conservative candidates:
But tea party leaders say they want more than just talk. They want conservative candidates who oppose big government, higher taxes, illegal immigration and runaway federal spending — themes Mr. Brown has tapped to surge ahead of the Democratic establishment’s candidate in Tuesday’s special election, state Attorney General Martha Coakley.
“We’re not going to join them. They need to join us,” Mr. Robertson said.
