Tea Party Numbers Continued
by

Jonathan Duhamel of Tucson, Ariz. says a local television station estimated 2,000 there.

The Locke Foundation’s John Hood has reported the following North Carolina numbers in The Locker Room:

I attended the Greensboro Tea Party protest at noon. The crowd began to swell by about 11:30am. Lots of homemade signs, many of them biting or funny. For example:

“Protect My Country — We’ll Do The Rest” 

“Uncle Sam’s Pork Stinks”

“TEA: Taxes Enough Already” 

“Born Free, Taxed to Death” 

“I’m 12 with a 160k debt” (held up by a kid)

…I estimated the crowd at peak at around 1,200.

Hood hears from other cities:

Goldsboro (home of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base): 300

Winston-Salem (just a stone’s throw from Greensboro): over 900, reports the Winston-Salem Journal

Charlotte (a higher estimate from the Charlotte Observer than reported by a Locke rep earlier): 2,000

Fayetteville (also higher estimate than earlier Locke report) — Fayetteville Observer says 400.

Locke’s Chad Adams is now in Asheville, NC, and reports from his Blackberry:

Around 1000 here in Asheville and growing!

Mike Thayer says 400 showed up in Iowa City, Iowa.

Dan Curran says there were 7,000-8,000 in Madison, Wisc.

Dan Yorke of WPRO in Rhode Island says:

I’m told 2500 in Providence.
