Nashville, Tennessee, April 4, 2010 -  Tennessee State Representative Susan Lynn (Republican) speaks during a Tea Party Express rally in the in the parking lot of Scoreboard Sports Bar in Nashville, the seventeenth stop in a 43-city tour across the country which will conclude with a large rally in Washington, D.C. on April 15, Tax Day. Lynn is running for state senate on a campaign for state sovereignty. She said she believes "it's time Tennesseans reworked their relationship with the federal government." Many came to the rally with lawn chairs and blankets to make themselves comfortable for the two-hour rally. The Tea Party Express tour titled "Just Vote Them Out" is taking an aggressive approach by targeting Democratic incumbents competitive districts, as well as Republicans deemed not conservative enough who are facing primary challenges from more conservative candidates. While not endorsing any candidates so far, the Tea Party Express does not hide its desire to replace incumbents with new conservatives that more closely hew to its goals of smaller government and less taxes..
