Doc Thompson, host of The Morning Blaze on Glenn Beck’s Blaze Radio Network, is scheduled to speak at the Rainy Day Patriots Tea Party meeting Tuesday evening at the Homewood Public Library.

Thompson is a libertarian-leaning radio host and political commentator. He has also provided political analysis for various television shows, including CNBC’s The Kudlow Report, The Blaze’s Real News, The Glenn Beck Program, The Pat and Stu Show, and special election coverage for CNN and Fox News.

Thompson will be coming to town as part of his national “Countdown to Midterm” tour. Alabama will be the ninth state the tour has visited since it kicked off just over a week ago in Oklahoma.

Also appearing will be musician Chris Holly, who was recently asked by Reuters, “Are you the only conservative rock musician the GOP could find?” Chris performed alongside many of the GOP’s 2012 presidential hopefuls as he traveled around the country playing at events throughout the race. He has also shared stages with Hootie and the Blowfish, Edwin Mccain, Better Than Ezra, Todd Snyder, Tonic, Toadies, Billy Joe Shaver and Drivin n Cryin, among others.

Tuesday evening’s free event at the Homewood Library will get started at 6:30 p.m. For more information visit the Rainy Day Patriots’ website.
