National Tea Party Federation Arrives On The Political Scene


National Tea Party Federation arrives on the political scene A coalition of national and regional Tea Party groups has announced the formation of the National Tea Party Federation (NTPF). Its proclaimed goal is to send a unified message and media response on behalf of key leaders and its affiliates.

The NTPF will also act to promote the Tea Party movement’s objectives of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free markets, its founders have stated.

"The combination of the Tea Party leadership and a strong network of alliances brings together activists with the resources to get our message out while coordinating across many groups," said Mark A. Skoda of the Memphis Tea Party.

His counterpart from Richmond, Jamie Radtke, added that the new federation understands "the importance of standing together while enhancing the ability to frame the discussion and realize gains amongst this approach to collaboration."

Among the founding members of the National Tea Party Federation are the American Grassroots Coalition, the Tea Party Express and the organization called DC Works for US. Meanwhile, its broader alliance includes Americans for Tax Reform, FreedomWorks and the Institute of Liberty. ADNFCR-1961-ID-19711665-ADNFCR
