ODESSA - The rainy and cloudy weather didn't keep West Texans from coming out for a TEA party protest.
Jim Parker Park in Odessa was full of flags, signs, chairs, raincoats and umbrellas.
On Saturday, West Texans heard from a number of speakers, including a few local politicians.
Supporters say with Saturday's TEA party protest they're reminding everyone how, as they claim, the federal government spending is out of control.
There was a variety of issues brought up during the event.
Members of the Odessa TEA party say they welcome new members.
