Laureen Cummings, challenger to Senator Bob Casey and leader of the Scranton Tea Party, is heading to New York City tomorrow to sit in the audience of conservative television personality Glenn Beck.
“BREAKING NEWS!!!!!!!” posted Cummings on her facebook page. “I just received a call to go on the Glenn Beck show!!!!!!!!!!!!OMG, OMG,OMG….CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! Okay so here is the thing, I want to bring someone with me and they have room for me to bring one other mom/dad that is just as concerned about what our kids are being taught as I am. Soooo who wants to come with me? I need to know ASAP.”
“Our Tea Party has been working with all the local school districts in regards to reading their history and science books to see exactly what our children are learning, and we’re finding a lot of inconsistencies,” Cummings told PoliticsPA in a brief interview.
“So, Glenn is having a show on that subject tomorrow and he called to ask if we’d be in his audience.”
She says she is still intent on challenging Senator Casey, but her focus now is on local races.
“Right now what we’re concentrating on is education and school boards and also I’m trying to help some of our candidates who are currently running. We have a lot of members who are running for office, and we’re working to help them out.”
