Minnick Unsure Re: Tea Party Caucus

Only a few days after rejecting an endorsement from the Tea Party Express, one of the many national voices of the Tea Party movement, Rep. Walt Minnick says is he unsure if he will join the newly-formed Tea Party Caucus in Congress.  The caucus is the work of Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, who believes the group will help legislators work more closely with anti-big government advocates in the movement.  Bachmann said the caucus will not serve as the head of the Tea Party movement and that the group of legislators in the caucus will focus on fiscal responsibility in government/Dustin Hurst, Idaho Reporter.

Question: At this point, don’t you think it’s suspect that Congressman Walt Minnick is unsure whether or not to join the Tea Party Caucus? Is he simply being a conservative tease?
