Mitt Romney To Take Tea Party Questions On Sunday

The Tea Party Patriots, a large grassroots network of state and local Tea Party groups, is hosting Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann via telephone for a brief town hall-style Q & A on Sunday.

“This is a chance for candidates to make their case to the tea party, and for Americans across the country to find out who will represent and advance their principles in office,” TPP co-founder Jenny Beth Martin said in a statement.

Romney has always kept a healthy distance between himself and the movement, stopping by a major Tea Party rally for the first time just this Fall.
