Summary: The Tea Party showed its strength in the 2010 mid-terms. Despite the opposition of leading Republicans like Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and Lindsey Graham, 140 Tea Party candidates ran for Congress. Of the sixty House seats which moved from Democratic to Republican control, twenty-eight were won by Tea Party candidates.

The Tea Party first attracted the media spotlight with Rick Santelli's televised rant against the government's bailout of mortgage bo.
