Tea Party groups across the state and the Brannon for US
Senate campaign are quietly lining up supporters to
attend a “FreedomWorks BBQ” in
on Tuesday evening. Sources familiar with the event’s back story say that
this event can be inferred as a coming-together of the Brannon campaign and the
national, high-profile Tea Party-affiliated political organization. Raleigh
FreedomWorks formed as the Tea Party was just picking up steam in 2009. It has been a clearinghouse for limited government ideas, and has led the way in educating the public on those limited government principles favored by The Tea Party. FreedomWorks has also aligned itself with anti-establishment candidates with limited government platforms at the state and federal levels.
