(CNN) - Leaders of the burgeoning Tea Party movement say their projected midterm election victories should send a strong message: watch out in 2012.
"The Republicans need to know, we've done it in 2010. If they don't do the right thing in the next couple of years, it's not a problem. We'll come back in 2012. We'll do it all over again. We'll replace them with people that will uphold [our] principles," said Mark Meckler, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots - one of the movement's largest groups.
