ST. LOUIS — Organizers of a tea party rally Sunday in St. Louis are expecting 10,000 supporters at the event beneath the Gateway Arch.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the rally is one of three "9/12" rallies around the country aimed at conjuring post-9/11 patriotism. Tea party supporters will gather that same day in Washington and Sacramento, Calif.

St. Louis speakers will include Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King and former presidential adviser Dick Morris.

The Arch grounds have hosted huge political rallies prerviously. Two years ago, an estimated 100,000 people attended a rally for then-Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama, the largest U.S. gathering of his campaign.
