Traverse City, Michigan, April 10, 2010 - A view of the Tea Party Express buses leaving Traverse Civic after a rally. The buses, which were covered in Tea Party imagery, hewed to a well planned path of smaller farm roads to maximize its presence in rural towns. 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..
