Muriel, There are many Tea Parties and each Tea Party is made up of individuals. Your state will determine who runs and who wins. That said, the vast majority of Tea Party folks are Conservative and they are not happy with a man who crosses over and aids the socialists in the destruction of America. As an outsider to your state, I resent it, but I think Brown is a better option than Kennedy. If folks in Mass feel he is the best they can do, then that is their choice. Were it me, I'd try for something better, but then I come from a Conservative state and I stand on Conservative principles. You will have to take your case for Scott Brown to the Republicans of Mass, in the primary and then to the Overall electorate. Additionally, we have a Mass State group here. Why not join it and see what they are saying?
