Before she even officially announced her candidacy in the 2012 election, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann polled in a statistical dead heat with Mitt Romney. What does the Tea Party have to do with Bachmann's rise and is she the movement's candidate in 2012?
Matt Kibbe, President and CEO of FreedomWorks, Mark Meckler, Co-Founder of Tea Party Patriots, and Jamie Radtke, Chairwoman Emeritus of the Federation of Virginia Tea Party Patriots all joined Happening Now with Tea Party insight. All three agree that they don't think there is a Tea Party candidate yet..
Kibbe says, "We're trying to measure all of the potential nominees based on the same standard from the Contract From America. Do they line up with Tea Party values? And, importantly, can they put together the practical mechanics of a winning campaign? I think that's a test for a lot of the candidates that we know share our values. But it's not just a test enough to share our values, we have to win too." Meckler agrees that there's no Tea Party candidate, saying, "What we're looking for is, we're looking for the Tea Party movement itself to analyze the candidates, to make a mature analysis of their positions, their histories, the things that they're saying right now on the campaigns. They'll make the decision when the time comes."
In reference to Michele Bachmann, Radtke says the Tea Party appreciates her "fearlessness and the fact that she hasn't been beholden to any special interest groups."
