Bundy to Speak at Elko Tea Party Event Sept. 11

Posted: Updated:
Elko Tea Party leaders say southern Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy will speak in Elko next month at a fundraiser and rally they're co-hosting with the Nevada Committee for Full Statehood.

Bundy gained fame in April during a confrontation between the Bureau of Land Management and his armed supporters in a decades-old dispute over livestock grazing at his Bunkerville ranch.

The government eventually backed down and Bundy's allies released the 380 cattle agents had seized.

Elko Tea Party co-chairwoman Lana Noland told the Elko Daily Free Press (http://tinyurl.com/mofsahm) Bundy's crusade underscores the importance of gun rights. Additional sponsors include Nevada Families for Freedom, Elko Independent American Party and the Constitutional Seminar Group.

Bundy told an Independent American Party gathering in Utah Aug. 2 his showdown was part of an age-old spiritual battle between good and evil.
