About 60 tea party members on Monday “stormed” a Republican office in Washington, D.C., in a scene that recalled the movie “Braveheart,” according to the DailyCaller.com
The protesters, a majority of them from Utah, dropped by the National Republican Senatorial Committee offices to challenge its support of Sen. Orrin Hatch
, R-Utah, for president.
They originated from the headquarters of the tea party organization FreedomWorks, which started a “Retire Orrin Hatch” movement and is pushing for a candidate who better represents tea party interests.
An NRSC staffer asked the chanting marchers to wait outside, then invited two members of the group to come inside and speak with a representative.
The Caller quotes one protester outside the offices as saying, “We’re off your porch, stay out of our primary.”
