About 2,000 Tea Party faithful gathered at Fountain Park in downtown Sheboygan on Saturday and put a collective eye on the 2012 presidential race.
The third-annual rally, organized by the Sheboygan Liberty Coalition, was aimed at maintaining momentum among conservatives, who say they're energized by the recent state recalls, where Democrats narrowly missed regaining control of the state Senate.
"The silent majority went to the voting booths and said, 'no way,'" said Oriannah Paul, Sheboygan Liberty Coalition president. "I want to encourage all of you to do it again. Stand up, and say, 'no more.'"
