The Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama PAC is launching five-week tour focused on getting people to come out and submit photographs of things they have built, and the tour is beginning in Wisconsin, according to a press released issued by the group.
The "Rebuild America, Defeat Obama" tour will kick off with a rally in Janesville on Saturday, and the group is scheduled to hold a Hudson rally from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday. The location of the Hudson rally and speakers are still being determined.
The 72-city tour is part of a larger effort that also includes a TV ad campaign in key swing states and a telethon that's set to take place Tuesday. But in Hudson, the effort will be to get people out to the rally and to bring photographs of what they have built for the group to include in a billboard:
We are asking supporters to please bring a picture no larger than 3 1/2" x 5" showing what they've built (a small business, a home, a project, etc...). We will collect these photographs at the rallies across the nation and then erect a billboard where the following words will be made up from all these photographs put together: "Yes, We DID Build It!"
Hudson has been the site for several Tea Party rallies in the past, most notably on Aug. 3, 2011, just days before several Wisconsin Senate recall elections took place. More than 300 people filled Lakefront Park as the Tea Party Express bus visited town. More than 100 protesters turned out to disrupt that bus tour and rally by shouting and jeering throughout nearly a dozen presentations.
