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.
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.
