ELKHART — The Tea Party Express, a national tea party group that drives a bus from city to city to push the conservative cause, stops here for a rally on Friday.

The rally goes from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will be held at Kardzhali Park, 301 Nibco Parkway. It is part of the Tea Party Express’ Winning for America tour, which started Sept. 11 and is to stop in 38 cities in 22 states through Oct. 2.

Curt Nisly of the Elkhart County Patriots, a local tea party group, said there will be speakers and entertainment. GOP U.S. House hopeful Jackie Walorski and U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, also a Republican, were invited, but Nisley didn’t know if they’d attend.

The Elkhart Board of Public Works on Tuesday gave the tea party group permission to use Kardzhali Park in a 4-1 vote, with Arvis Dawson, assistant to Elkhart Mayor Dick Moore, dissenting.

The Tea Party Express stopped in Elkhart as part of a different tour last year, drawing around 200 people, according to Nisley.
