The Tea Party Nation announced tonight that it will host a live broadcast of the opening of the National Tea Party Convention, keynote speeches and Sarah Palin’s address.

In order to enable millions of Tea Party activists who could not be in attendance, the National Tea Party Convention is working with PJTV, FOX News, CNN and Reuters TV in a combined effort to bring this historic event to the grassroots.

Mark A. Skoda, founder of the Memphis TEA Party, said that the live broadcast has been a surprise that had been in the works over the past month, in an effort to enable the millions of activists to participate with the local delegates through technology.

Judson Phillips, President of Tea Party Nation said in a press release, “Tea Party Nation and my family have taken much criticism over the weeks preceding the convention. Working with our media relations team, the new media and our key broadcast journalists, we kept our plans close to the vest. Obviously, we believe that the delegates and banquet attendees are going to enjoy the networking and the excitement of being here directly. However, as we are all committed to grassroots activism, we wanted to share this event with those who could not come to Nashville.”

Schedules, broadcast and viewing times will be available on the National Tea Party convention website.
