Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is joining the Tea Party Express in Nevada again to launch a cross-country tour intended to capitalize on government discontent and unify conservatives determined to throw out Sen. Harry Reid and his Democratic allies in Congress.

Palin is the headliner at the kickoff rally in Reno Monday morning on behalf of Sharron Angle, the tea party-backed Republican running against the Senate majority leader.

Palin and the Tea Party Express drew more than 9,000 people to an anti-establishment rally in Reid's hometown of Searchlight in March. Angle can't attend Monday because the national committee based in California has made independent expenditures on her behalf.

The 15-day tour wraps up in New Hampshire on Nov. 1.
