US tea party finds support in Colorado

Political movement increasingly including first-time activists fighting for candidates.



    Campaigning for the upcoming US midterm election is heating up, thanks in part to the rise of the so-called tea party movement, whose supporters include a new breed of political activists.

    The Sattler family is part of that breed. They believe government policies are destroying their country and their culture and they say they were motivated to join the tea party movement to create a better world for their children.
