Kansas City, Kan. Citing a lack of participation, organizers of a tea party rally and convention planned for this fall at The Woodlands racetrack in Kansas City, Kan., have canceled the event.
Organizers of the Freedom Jamboree said Tuesday that not enough tea party organizations would commit to the event, which was scheduled for late September and early October.
One of the organizers, William Temple, told The Kansas City Star that tea partiers weren't prepared to spend the money to attend the event.
The event was expected to attract Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Sen. Rick Santorum, both Republican presidential candidates.
