ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Southwest Georgians who are part of the nationwide tea party grassroots movement gathered for a regional rally Saturday morning.

More than two hundred gathered at the Exchange Club Fairgrounds for the event. They say they're tired of run away government spending, oppressive government regulations, and high taxes.

Some like Jan Ammons say government is too big. She wants both Republican and Democratic leaders to put the will of the people first, or get voted out of office.

"Mister Bishop is a good man I'm not saying anything about his character, but when you're an elected official and you forget you work for the people and you vote along party lines, it's time for you to be pink slipped," said Jan Ammons, TEA Party Supporter.

Lenny McAllister was the main speaker at the Albany Area Tea Party Rally.

McAllister has been noted nationally for his ability to provide strong conservative points-of-view from an African-American perspective.
