(Newser) – Sarah Palin will stick it to Harry Reid by headlining a Tea Party rally in his hometown of Searchlight, Nevada, on March 27. The assault on the struggling Senate majority leader will kick off a 42-city bus tour for the Tea Party Express; Palin will also headline at a stop in Boston on April 14. Her first appearance for the group will be her keynote speech at their inaugural national convention in Nashville this weekend.

Reid responded to the incursion on his home turf with a stab at folksy hospitality. "Make sure you stop by the Nugget for a ten-cent cup of coffee with free refills—and make sure to say 'Hi' to Verlie," he told the Washington Post.
