Wilson County Tea Party Disbanding After 3 Years

Posted: Updated:

LEBANON, Tenn. (AP) - The Wilson County Tea Party is disbanding.

Organizer Sherrie Orange told supporters in an email last Monday that after three-plus years of work, the group was calling it quits immediately.

She wrote, "Everyone in this core group is tired and, as a result, we have made the very difficult decision that we can no longer continue running the Wilson County Tea Party."

Recently, the group fought the creation of a state-run health insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act. Ultimately, Gov. Bill Haslam did not create a state-run exchange, leaving the task of operating the exchange to the federal government.
