Tea Party protesters gather at Ark. Capitol steps

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Tea Party activists are gathering at
Arkansas' Capitol to mark tax day and to protest what they call
out-of-control spending by the federal government.
      Conservative author Dick Morris was expected to address a rally
on the Capitol steps to mark the filing deadline for federal taxes.
The rally was one of many held around the state and country on
Thursday.
      Tea Party activists in Arkansas have aimed much of their anger
at incumbents, including Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln. Eight
Republicans are running for Lincoln's seat, and Lincoln is fending
off a challenge in the May 18 primary from Lt. Gov. Bill Halter.
