Tea Party Express rolls through Iowa


The Tea Party Express rolled into Iowa Monday morning as part of its nationwide tour.

The tour is stopping in key battleground states prior to the upcoming presidential and congressional contests.

In between stops, the buses themselves are acting as mobile billboards.

Those with the Tea Party Express say they're backing candidates who will fight for the American dream.

"While in 2009 people were picketing and demonstrating out of frustration- what we're finding now is people are engaged and involved in the political campaigns. so it's alive and well it's just not as demonstrative as it was," said Sal Russo, from the Tea Party Express.

The Tea Party Express ends next Monday in Texas.
