WALKER, JOHNSON, DAVIS LEAD TEA PARTY ACTIVIST SURVEY 

An on-line survey of southeastern Wisconsin TEA party activists show strong support for gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker and United States Senate candidate Ron Johnson.  Also topping their fields included State Representative Brett Davis (R-Oregon),  a candidate for lieutenant governor; Scott Feldt, a candidate for state treasurer, David King, a candidate for Secretary of State and J.B. Van Hollen, incumbent running for WI State Attorney General.


The survey was emailed to approximately 3,000 activists who had attended TEA party events or were previously identified as community activists.  A total of 1,462 responses were received at the end of the ten day survey period between August 10th and August 19th from individual IP addresses.  (See results page 2)

“We conducted this survey as an opportunity to get an idea of where the thousands of folks who have been attending events or active in their community view the elections right now” said Racine Tea Party spokesperson Nancy Milholland.  We’re excited with the number of responses which confirm what we hear everyday; that interest in the November election is building”.   Milholland added that the Racine Tea Party has not and will not endorse individual candidates as a group.

The Racine Tea Party also just announced they are sponsoring a “Tribute and Town Hall” event Saturday, September 11 at Pershing Park in downtown Racine; featuring keynote speaker Congressman Paul Ryan, the ranking member of the Budget Committee in the House of Representatives.  The event will focus on the economy, jobs, and the national debt.  Niger Innis a national spokesperson for The Congress of Racial Equality (C.O.R.E.) will also address the participants on the dire effects of global warming proposals.



The Racine Tea Party is a non-partisan group advocating for responsible government, lower taxes and holding politicians accountable.
