Missouri Lt. Governor Peter Kinder speaks to the crowd tonight about the democrat’s health care bill. The popular Lt. Governor announced on April 7 that he will proceed with plans to file suit challenging the recently signed federal health care bill. The Lt. Governor also announced that he will seek private funding for the legal challenge. Kinder vowed to join a multi-state lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of President Obama’s health care reform overhaul by the end of April.

I was emcee tonight at the anniversary rally. James Kirk took the photo.

Bill Hennessy, Dana Loesch, Gina Loudon, Jim Hoft, Fred Sauer, John Burns, Adam Sharp, Jay Stewart, Stephanie Rubach and Missouri Lt. Governor Peter Kinder spoke to the terrific crowd at Memorial Park in Clayton, Missouri.

In this shot I just introduced our St. Louis rock star Dana Loesch to the stage. She was in rare form. (I believe this was taken by Kenny Bahr.)

Dana wrote a wonderful post on the rally at her blog.
(Thank you Dana for the kind words.)

UPDATE: Mike T. sent this photo he took from the back of the crowd last night during the rally.

I was on the stage speaking in the background in the time.
