Harry Reid says 7,000 tea partiers are no big deal?

"Dump Harry Reid" is a new effort from the folks at Tax Day Tea Party. Here's what you need to know about it (and about the fall-out from "Showdown in Searchlight"):

Dump Harry Reid!
Last weekend our crew went to the Searchlight (Harry Reid's home town) Tea Party and handed out 1,000 "Dump Reid" stickers. We were there on the grounds at 7:30 AM, and there were already 1,000 gathered for the rally.

By noon, there were easily 15,000 people in the crowd. Politico said 20,000, CNN said a few hundred, check out some of the pictures and judge for yourself.

It's important to note that the rally was built around the idea that it's time for Harry Reid to be removed from office. So if we assume that at least 5,000 tea party activists gathered in the middle of the desert to plan the defeat of Harry Reid, one would have to conclude it a pretty significant event.

Not Harry Reid.

Politico said that Harry Reid laughed off the event because only 7,000 attended. Is this guy for real?

Let's get this straight. AT LEAST 7,000 activists rally in the middle of nowhere to rally against you and your attempt to remain in power, and it's no big deal because much larger crowds were expected?

This is very typical of Harry Reid. Out of touch with the people, and with what is happening around him.

In response, we've launched DumpReid.com to begin building a coalition to oppose Harry Reid. Please visit DumpReid.com and share it with all of your friends.

Take action!
