On Sunday, FreedomWorks held its second annual 9/12 March on Washington. Speakers at the rally, this year focused on the Contract FROM America, a plan FreedomWorks has been asking politicians to sign and pledge to follow.
The forecast said rain, but the most it did was light drizzle and misting. By the end of the rally, the sun was trying to break through the clouds.
FreedomWorks President and CEO Matt Kibbe estimated the crowd size at around 100,000 Tea Partiers, a crowd smaller than last year’s march, something he said may be partly attributable to the fact several 9/12 rallies were going on simultaneously nationwide and that Fox News personality Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally was held in Washington at the end of August.
