Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, a darling of the Tea Party movement, is headed to Missouri this week to lend her support to Republican candidate for Senate, Roy Blunt.

And that has some 28 Tea Party groups in Missouri calling foul. In a letter posted online this week, the groups accuse Blunt -- a longtime congressman -- of contributing to the problem of big government.

The letter reads:
Tea Party participants believe the spending in Washington has to STOP. Roy Blunt voted for TARP and Cash for Clunkers. For Michelle Bachmann to come to Missouri and give the impression that all Missouri Tea Parties support Roy Blunt is an abomination of everything we've been standing for.
