(Newser) – A mob of Tea Partiers chanting "Remember in November" descended on DC yesterday for another major rally in the nation's capital. Speakers put both Democrats and Republicans on notice that the movement is a force to be reckoned with, CNN reports. "I believe we've gotten the Republican Party's attention," boasted a march organizer, referring to surprise wins in Kentucky and Alaska. The Tea Party's latest hopes are pinned on come-from-way-behind "anti-masturbation" Delaware candidate Christine O'Donnell, who's facing off against a long-time GOP congressman in the Republican primary for Senate tomorrow.

That will set the stage for what backers hope will be a string of victories in the midterm elections. "With only a few weeks before this important November election, send one more message to the folks in that dome behind us: We're tired of the way they've been acting," organizer Brendan Steinhauser told the crowd of thousands.
