The George Mason University chapter of the College Republicans will be taking a group into the District on Saturday to participate in the Tea Party Express. Saturday’s march will be the culmination of the express’ 15 day tour of America which began in California on August 28. The tour seeks to “highlight some of the worst offenders in Congress who have voted for higher spending, higher taxes, and government intervention in the lives of American families and businesses,” according to their website.
The College Republicans will be meeting at the Fairfax Campus’ CUE Bus stop at 8 a.m. According to their website, a larger group will gather at the Freedom Plaza at 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue at 9 a.m. and the actual march to the Capitol will begin at 11:30 a.m. At 1 p.m. a protest will begin at the Capitol’s West Front.
