Berea, Ohio, April 11, 2010 - Tea Party supporters numbering around 550 gather at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds during a Tea Party Express rally, the thirty-sixth 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. Several came dressed in costume, such as Uncle Sam here, and many in clothing inspired by the American flag. Amy Kremer, the Grassroots Coordinator for Tea Party Express, commented that each time the busses passed protestors, "None were wearing the American flag or colors of the flag." Adding that, "They (the protestors) are clearly not patriotic." 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..
