House Tea Party Caucus to Meet, Discuss Debt Ceiling

The House Tea Party Caucus will hold its first official meeting Monday night, hosting a panel discussion on the upcoming debt ceiling debate.

The caucus was supposed to meet on Feb. 17, but it had to reschedule because of the continuing resolution debate. Panelists for Monday night’s gathering include tea party activists from Pennsylvania, Florida and Virginia as well as Stan Collender, a partner at Qorvis Communications and a Roll Call contributing writer.

The Senate Tea Party Caucus held its first official meeting last month; members invited the media to attend. The House gathering is closed to the press.

While not an official caucus gathering, Members affiliated with the tea party gathered in January for a closed-door discussion on the Constitution with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
