Four days ago, Sarah Palin endorsed Conservative Candidate Doug Hoffman in the NY-23 congressional race. Without question, it would be far better for Bill Owens (D) to win than to put another RINO in the US House but it looks like a true conservative may pull off the upset.
As of today, Mr. Hoffman has taken the lead in the polls! Is there any question why the left fears Mrs. Palin so much? I wonder how the Republicans that endorsed Scozzafava feel about their choice today and how they're going to feel about it when it's time for their re-election.
Looks like Sarah has emboldened others to stand up against the blue blood Republican establishment. Minnesota Governor, Tim Pawlenty endorsed Doug Hoffman today (it's always easy to endorse a leader). Rumor has it that Pawlenty is eying a White House bid in 2012. Could it be that he is trying to follow Sarah's lead?
Now, Governor Palin needs to look at the US Senate race in Florida where the same thing is happening. Another liberal Republican, Governor Charlie Crist is trying to convince everyone he's a conservative and that the real conservative, Marco Rubio, can't win.
Anyone have Sarah's number? Let her know Marco Rubio could use her support!
