The Tea Party Express rolled into Searchlight, Nevada. Searchlight is the hometown of Senate Majority leader Harry Reid. I have read crowd estimates from 8,000 to 20,000 people. CNN though did estimate the crowd to be "Hundreds of people, at least dozens of people - we haven't gotten a count of how many people turned out there”. Let the image below be your guide.
Unruly supporters of Harry Reid set up camp about a mile away from the Tea Party rally. Perhaps these are the dozens of people CNN was talking about.
Sarah Palin headlined the event. Palin called out the media for its bogus reporting on Tea Parties inciting violence. Palin also told slammed the Obama, Pelosi , Reid agenda as being a crapshoot on America’s future. In addition to Palin, Andrew Breitbart, Andrew Marcus, Andrea Shea King, Victoria Jackson, Chris Cassone were also present.
The Las Vegas Sun gives a pretty honest description of the events.
More images can be found at Nice Deb, The Founding Bloggers, and Left Coast Rebel. Plus an nice slide show at The Las Vegas Sun. The Other McCain also has a first hand account here, here, and here, with more to follow. Remember Robert Stacy, what goes on in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
