The Independence Hall Tea Party PAC considers today’s swearing in of the 112th Congress is a victory. The only federally registered Tea Party PAC in the tri state area endorsed eight successful candidates in the recent election.

    Five of the eight candidates replaced Democrats, but the PAC says it’s not finished yet. The new goal, as stated in a release, is to “win the White House.”
