Tea Party making their presence known

BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) - A big movement made their presence felt in the low country.

The Beaufort Tea Party hosted their first annual citizens "9-12" rally on the waterfront park pavillion in downtown Beaufort.

Advocates for smaller government met and listened to a number of speakers.

No politicians were invited to speak, but they were welcome to mingle in the crowd.

Those involved said the focus needed to be on the people, not those already in government.
