The Tea Party Express national tour drew the attention of Fox News Channel and an estimated crowd of more than 2,000 people when it stopped in Waco on Thursday afternoon.
Mark Williams, vice chairman of the Tea Party Express and a radio talk show host, said the Waco event had more supporters than any other tour stop, excluding the tours send-off rally Aug. 28 in Sacramento, Calif.
Tea Party Express, a bus tour traveling the country to rally opposition to high taxes, government spending and growth in the size of the government, arrived about 5 p.m. at Indian Spring Park in downtown Waco.

Yeehaw! Keep the spirit going!
Just wonderful! So proud of all the citizens that turn out for all the events across this country.
Thanks to you for all your posts.
each one attending represents over a hundred more people
Praying for huge turnout in DC
Yes we can!
2,000? That’s nice. But an expected crowd of 60,000 to 100,000 is expected at the Friends of America (Conservative) Rally on Monday at Holden WV. Sean Hannity, Ted Nugent, John Rich and Hank Williams Jr. are the invited guests. Nugent is the event’s emcee. The official site is: www.friendsofamericarally.com. Hope to see everyone there!
Thank you. I just love this story about the whistle stop in East Texas: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2332914/posts
You are comparing apples to oranges. A planned rally is a far cry from a bus stop by a caravan just passing through. 2000 was a great turn out for the Tea Party Express! WOOT!
Another planned rally that did very well:
18,000 Attend Tea Party at Voice of America Park in Ohio
