Dave Westlake, a Republican running for Senate who identifies closely with the tea party movement, said [former G.W. Bush cabinet secretary Tommy] Thompson shouldn’t be using the rally to make his [non-]announcement.Why can't we all just get along?
"He’s using a platform that’s supposed to be about rallying around a common cause to reduce the size of government, to lower spending and lower taxes and he’s using it for his own personal announcement," Westlake said. "He’s not the tea party movement. He’s a big spender and did a lot of things that was the antithesis of what people in the tea party want."
