Palin stirs up US Tea Party rally

Popular Republican took spotlight in huge rally against healthcare legislation.

    A coalition of conservative activist groups - calling themselves the Tea Party movement - is stepping up demonstrations against the administration of Barack Obama, the US president, ahead of midterm elections.

    On Saturday, it began a 42-city tour campaigning against healthcare reforms signed into law last week.

    Thousands of people joined a rally in Searchlight, Nevada to hear Sarah Palin, the populist Republican former vice-presidential candidate, lead the attack against Harry Reid, the Democratic House Majority leader.
