Rush Limbaugh coming to Joplin for the 4th of July

Updated:

A semi loaded with tea is on its way to Joplin, Missouri, and so is Rush Limbaugh himself.

Limbaugh had asked his listeners for suggestions on where he should send a semi loaded with Two If By Tea for 4th of July, and after receiving more than 3,000 entries, he said the choice was clear - Joplin, Missouri.

Limbaugh says he is coming to Joplin as well.

"You people in Joplin should know that people all over the country submitting entries suggested you instead of their own communities," Limbaugh says.  "Not everybody, but it was a hands-down, easy choice."

Limbaugh will be at the Freedom Fest at Landreth Park on Monday the 4th.
