Protesters "don't mind" Tea Party showing up

MADISON (WKOW) -- It was relatively quiet at the capital Friday night but it could be the calm before the storm.

Protesters have held the spotlight for most of the week, but Saturday could be different. At noon, the Tea Party will hold a rally at the south side of the capital. Conservative groups aligned with the Tea Party are asking anybody in favor of Governor Walker's bill to come and show support.

When we talked to protestors against the bill Friday night, they didn't seem to mind the Tea Party showing up.

"Let them come," said Margaret Logemann

"Do you think there's going to be yelling?" asked WKOW.

"Hope not, we're all adults.  We can work things out in our country," answered Logemann.

"We have the right to be here, they can come," said Stephanie King, a social worker.

"They have a right to protest.  We're all Americans. We all have the right to public assembly," said Bill Shatwell, a state driver.

Both sides say they don't want or expect any confrontations.
