MADISON (WRN) A Tea Party rally in Madison this weekend is adding a big name to its guest list. Former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be the keynote speaker at Saturday’s Tea Party rally, being organized by the Americans For Prosperity of Wisconsin.
AFP state director Matt Seaholm says Palin is a favorite among many in the Tea Party and the conservative movement and they’re excited for her presence to help “rally the troops.”
Seaholm says there were talks of her coming to the state earlier, during the rallies over the collective bargaining bill. However, the group only held one major rally during the several weeks of debate over the bill.
The rally starts at noon on the Capitol Square.
