Tea Party Goes on the Road to Ramp Up Canvassing Efforts
The tea party is hoping to get a leg up on Democrats by putting their canvassing efforts on wheels.
The recently debuted mobile phone bus made a stop in Albemarle County Friday morning. The bus uses technology to help volunteers recruit voters on the move. Each of the 15 stations has a computer and a cellphone.
The bus will tour 23 battleground states as part of an 81-day "Get Out the Vote" campaign.
Andy Surabian, with the Tea Party Express, said, "I always like to say the left has always outdone the conservative movement when it comes to technology, but this is an opportunity for tea partiers to get ahead of the curve on the left."
The bus left Charlottesville to drive directly to Tampa for the Republican National Convention, which will start on Monday.
