The Tea Party Nation is postponing until October its Las Vegas "Unity Convention," which was supposed to take place in July. The change was first reported this morning by TPM, and is also announced on the group's website.
The change could give tea party favorite Sharron Angle, the original keynote speaker for the convention, a much needed spotlight on the eve of the general election.
But the delay also protects her from a national stage at the critical time she is under-going her general election metamorphosis. Angle has spent the past several weeks mostly avoiding mainstream media outlets, granting interviews to only conservative talk show hosts.
Tomorrow she is expected to be on Jon Ralston's Face-to-Face, her first lengthy interview since the primary election.
