Palin Heads to Reno

Earlier this week, Sal Russo, chief strategist for the Tea Party Express, told NRO that Sharron Angle is the group’s “favorite” candidate, and that her campaign remains the organization’s “number one” priority.  He meant it: On Monday, the Tea Party Express will join forces with Sarah Palin in Reno:

The organization announced Thursday that the former Alaska governor and the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee will join the launch of tour, which they call the “Tea Party Express: Liberty At The Ballot Box” national tour, which starts Monday at a rally in Reno, Nevada.

The first two days of the tour are in Nevada, home state to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who’s fighting for his political life this year as he bids for a fifth term. Tea Party Express targeted Reid in its previous tours.

In March, Palin was the keynote speaker at a rally in Reid’s hometown of Searchlight, Nevada, that kicked off the Tea Party Express’ third cross-country tour.
