Eau Claire, Wisconsin, April 7, 2009 - Tea Party Express founder and strategist Sal Russo works on board his bus during a rally in a parking lot in Eau Claire, the twenty-fifth 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. Russo is also a political consultant with Russo Marsh + Rogers. 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..
