Montevideo tea partiers have message for D.C.
MONTEVIDEO -- Carrying signs, flags and even dressed in red, white and blue, some three to four dozen people joined Montevideo's first-ever public tea party Thursday at the busy intersection of highways 212 and 7.
"We want to send a message to Washington that we've had enough," said Lyle Henning, one of the organizers.
There were no speakers or political candidates at the event, and pointedly so, according to Henning.
"This is the people's tea party."
