Tea Party Nation will hold next convention in Las Vegas in July

The Tea Party Nation will hold next convention July 15-17 in Las Vegas. 

Spokeswoman Sherry Phillips, who confirmed the dates, said the group is currently taking hotel bids and would make a formal announcement once the details are set. 

The first Tea Party Nation convention was held in Nashville, Tenn., earlier this month and was fraught with controversy, with numerous sponsors and speakers — including Republican Reps. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee — dropping out because of the for-profit nature of the event. 

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, was the only major political figure to eventually speak, reportedly receiving $100,000 for her appearance.
