Tea Partiers Vow to Unseat Reid

Tea Partiers are gunning to take down the Democrats' top dog, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who is up for reelection in the 2010 midterms. The conservative activists have begun to focus their operations in Reid's home state of Nevada, The New York Times reports: The Tea Party Express commenced its third cross-country bus tour last month in the senator's tiny hometown, Searchlight, and the second Tea Party national convention is slated to take place in Searchlight in July. Many of the efforts are led by the same group that spent $350,000 to catapult Republican Scott Brown to Massachusetts' Senate seat. So far, though, Tea Partiers have yet to reach a consensus on which Republican to support; of the 12 Republican candidates on the primary ballot for June, none has garnered a significant percentage of Tea Party support.
