"This is a great opportunity for all of us to come together and voice our support for a return to constitutional principles and a sound fiscal policy," said Michael Cloud, Victoria County Young Republicans president and chairman of the tea party organizing committee.
This year's theme is "Taking Back our Constitution."
Confirmed speakers will include state Rep. Geanie Morrison; Tina Benkiser, former Texas State Republican Party chair; Wendy Herman, homeschool housewife turned political activist; and Cloud.
