Tea Party politicians often pride themselves on how frugal they are. But is that reflected in what they drive? Click through this gallery to see the rides of some prominent Tea Party Republicans.

Scott Brown

STARTING IT ALL: The Massachusetts senator, who was elected with Tea Party support though he does not necessarily associate with the movement, became famous driving around the state in his well-worn 2005 GMC Canyon.

Scott Walker

PRACTICES WHAT HE PREACHES: The campaign website of Wisconsin's now-controversial governor proudly proclaims that he drives around in a 1998 Saturn with 100,000 miles (and eats two ham and cheese sandwiches for lunch).

Rick Snyder

WHAT, YOU EXPECTED A TOYOTA? For Michigan's new governor, driving anything but an American-made car would be a travesty. Snyder drives a Lincoln MKX.

Nikki Haley

GOOD FOR AWARD SHOWS, TOO: South Carolina's first female governor drives a white Cadillac Escalade.

Rick Scott

COME FLY WITH ME: Florida's new governor, who made a fortune as a health care executive, owns a seven-person Hawker 400XP private jet.
