Overview

Tea Party political passions, first seen in demonstrations and town meetings, now echo through statehouses and governors' mansions. In many states, 2009 and 2010 voters re-elected or elected new Republican governors with Tea Party backing.

Tea Party activists were blunt in expressing their views and many Tea Party governors, like Chris Christie, echoed that style. Others, like Rick Snyder, had a mellower tone. This book of quotations by two Maine political scientists collects Tea Party governors' words from mild to wild, from bombastic to cautious, and from harsh to gentle. American politics fans will be entertained by these quotations, and will also better understand these 14 governors - Jan Brewer, Sam Brownback, Chris Christie, Tom Corbett, Nikki Haley, John Kasich, Paul LePage, Susana Martinez, "Butch" Otter, Sean Parnell, Rick Perry, Rick Scott, Rick Snyder, and Scott Walker.
