Pawlenty To Headline Boston Tea Party Rally

BOSTON (AP) – Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty will be among the speakers at an April 15 tea party rally in Boston.

The Greater Boston Tea Party said on Wednesday that Pawlenty will headline its third annual “Tax Day” rally on the Boston Common.

The Republican announced last week that he was forming an exploratory committee for a 2012 White House bid.

Christen Varley, president of the Greater Boston Tea Party, said in a statement that Pawlenty helped put Minnesota on track for economic success.

There are several other scheduled speakers at the rally, including former state Rep. Karyn Polito, who ran unsuccessfully for state treasurer in Massachusetts last year.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin headlined last year’s tea party rally in Boston.
