Former Alaska Governor and VP candidate, Sarah Palin, has announced her support for Dan Bongino in his battle to unseat incumbent and hard left MD Senator Ben Cardin.
From the Examiner:
Former Alaskan Governor and Republican Vice-Presidential Nominee weighs in on the U.S. Senate contest in Maryland, joining another conservative PAC in supporting the first time Republican candidate
While many liberal-leaning news publications and political analysts have written off the second highest political campaign on this year’s Maryland ballot – second only to the Presidential contest; the infamous conservative Alaskan, and ‘unofficial’ leader of the Tea Party, apparently believes the race is still open for a Republican revolt.
Former Alaskan Governor and 2008 Vice-President Nominee, Sarah Palin, has decided to put the force of her endorsement behind the attractive United States Senate Republican nominee, Dan Bongino. The political novice and former secret service agent for the last three United State’s Presidents, Bongino looks to parlay a career in national service into an elected office that has always been seen as the ‘Good Ole Boy’s’ club of politics.
And, the Senate’s most conservative Tea Party stalwart, Senator Jim DeMint, has also thrown his backing behind Bongino. DeMint, for your information, has the highest (99%) Heritage Foundation Action Score of anyone in the US Senate! Contrast DeMint’s 99% to Senator Ben (Obamacare!) Cardin’s 5%! 5%!
And as Bongino challenges the powerful democratic political-establishment in Maryland, he continues to look for the support and guidance of others that have faced and defeated entrenched, out-of-touch politicians. However, Palin doesn’t seem to be the only outside support Bongino looks to receive, as Senator Jim DeMint’s PAC, the Senate Conservatives Fund, has also endorsed the first time candidate. On their website, the PAC endorses Bongino – along with three others from across the country – by saying that there isn’t a candidate in the country who has more passion for conservative principles than Dan Bongino.
So tell me why Americans for Prosperity MD has to go campaign in Virginia?
I’ve been receiving alerts asking me to go to Virginia to help campaign against Obama there. I get that, since Virginia is a key state needed to remove Obama from the White House, but do we have enough grassroots folks with enough time to do Virginia and still have time and energy leftover to help all of our good candidates here in Maryland—Dan Bongino, Ken Timmerman, Roscoe Bartlett and others. Not to mention the fact that we have three major referendum votes (four if you include gambling) that we need to educate the voters on.
Admittedly I haven’t been following AFP Maryland, but does anyone know what they are doing to help win the ballot initiatives on illegal immigration, gay marriage and re-districting? Or, are there plans for their members to hit the pavement for Bongino, Timmerman, Bartlett and the other Republicans? I didn’t see any on their website. Please correct me if there are and I will update this post!
Hey, here is an idea! How about an AFP bus for Bongino!
