Gov. Palin Endorses FL’s Sandy Adams for U.S. House

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 12, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

According to Sandy Adams’ website, Governor Palin has endorsed her candidacy for Congress:

Today, freshman Sandy Adams announced that she had earned the endorsement of former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential Nominee Sarah Palin. Governor Palin’s support is proof-positive that Sandy Adams is the conservative choice for Florida’s new 7th Congressional District.

“Governor Sarah Palin has led the charge for conservatives,” said Adams. “While many politicians subscribe to the notion of the status quo, Governor Palin has risen above it. She knows that the true power of our country comes from the American people – not the Washington establishment or special interest groups. Governor Palin knows our nation is drowning in debt and the only way for our country to survive is to send true fiscal conservatives to Washington, D.C.

“Americans need representatives who will truly listen to them and that care about the direction our country is heading. I didn’t run for Congress because I wanted to be a politician, I ran because I was concerned about the future for our grandchildren and children. I refuse to accept business as usual in Washington, because I know Central Floridians deserve better than a career politician like my opponent.”

Today, Gov. Palin made the following endorsement of Adams:

“In 2012, we have a unique opportunity to elect more commonsense conservatives to Congress, but that alone is not enough. We must support conservatives who are with us on the issues but not weighed down with the burden of crony capitalism that is so prevalent in Washington, D.C. Congresswoman Sandy Adams is just one of those candidates. Unlike her opponent, Sandy is free from the shackles of lobbyists and back door dealings in Washington. As someone who served in the military and a career law enforcement officer, Sandy doesn’t have time or the patience for the business as usual ways of Washington. Washington insiders on both sides of the aisle have spent this country into massive debt and put our children’s future at risk. Let’s start to restore power to the people. Please join me in supporting Sandy Adams today.”

– Sarah Palin

Adams was endorsed by Gov. Palin in her race against an incumbent Democrat in 2010, and that support helped contribute to a 20 point win in November. At the beginning of this election, Adams approached Palin about continuing that support in her race for re-election. In her letter to Palin, Adams wrote:

During the 2008 presidential campaign your candidacy for vice president shone a bright spotlight on the need for politicians to answer to the people they are seeking to represent. You spoke out against the entrenched bureaucracy that holds our economy down, against the mainstream media who go along with the status quo to maintain their access to power, and against the special interests who too often control the levers of power in politics.

While ultimately unsuccessful, your outspokenness helped a new generation of politicians who were not afraid to stand up to the old guard, who are willing to challenge the status quo, and who believe that the brightest days of our republic lie ahead of us. For that I thank you.

Today I am writing to once again ask for your endorsement in my reelection bid for Congress. This year, however, it is not a Democrat that chose to run against me, but rather a fellow Republican. Rather than run in a district with more than 70 percent of the people living there currently in his congressional district, my opponent has chosen to run against me for reelection. A twenty-year incumbent who has a long history of favoring earmarks, foreign travel and who once proclaimed he was President Obama’s “biggest cheerleader” for the high speed rail boondoggle, my opponent epitomizes what is wrong with Washington, D.C.

Today’s endorsement by Gov. Palin adds to a long list of conservative organizations committed to supporting freshman Sandy Adams in her race against a 20-year incumbent politician. To date, Adams has been endorsed by the Concerned Women for America, Eagle Forum, Maggie’s List, VIEW PAC, the National Right to Life, SBA List, the National Defense PAC, the Government is Not God PAC, David Barton, Erick Erickson, the Central Florida Tea Party Council, and Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Palin-Endorsed Ted Cruz Surges Into Texas Senate Lead In New PPP Poll

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on July 12, 2012

Sarah Palin’s winning streak for endorsed candidates looks like it will continue in spectacular fashion. PPP Polling’s first poll AT THIS LINK of the GOP’s run-off campaign for the nomination for senator from Texas shows Palin-endorsed Ted Cruz in a solid lead. 

The fact that a Dem pollster finds the result “surprising” is of course hardly surprising.  The fact that they give the credit to the Tea party without mentioning the massive effect Palin’s endorsement had on the campaign is also not surprising – but it is sad.

For a more unbiased via of Cruz and Palin’s endorsement see the Hill AT THIS LINK.

If Cruz’s remarkable result in keeping the person Dewhurst from winning the first round is included in the calculation and Cruz goes on to win at the end of the month, it will be an astonishing 7 wins in a row for Palin, including Deb Fischer’s amazing win in Nebraska. And Palin is supposed to be “irrelevant.”  In the meantime, she is shaping the Senate, at least, to her views by her chosen candidates’ winning race after race.

PPP’s first poll of the Texas Senate runoff finds Ted Cruz with a surprising 49-44 lead and a much more enthusiastic cadre of supporters than former front runner David Dewhurst.

Cruz’s lead expands to a whooping 59-36 margin over Dewhurst among voters who describe themselves as ‘very excited’ about voting in the election. The lower turnout is, the better Cruz’s chances will be.

Dewhurst leads 51-43 with ‘somewhat excited’ voters and 50-36 with those who say they are ‘not that excited.’ The big question is whether those less enthused folks will actually bother to turn out or not.

This race is one of the most stark examples of the Tea Party movement propelling a candidate that we’ve seen to date. 40% of voters identify themselves as members of that movement and Cruz has a 71-26 advantage with them.

The remarkable history of Cruz’s advance is detailed below:
.
Subsequent to Sarah Palin’s endorsement of him, GOP candidate for senator from Texas, Ted Cruz has completed the astonishing journey from polling at only 3% to being in the final run-off. Cruz having kept the previously presumed winner Dewhurst below 50% in tonight’s primary battle.
.
PRIMARY RESULT MAY 29th.

 92% reporting Ted Cruz 445,483 33.60%
David Dewhurst 593,865 44.79%
.

Clearly this last minute Tweet by Palin to Texans, and her previous robocall, made a major contribution to Cruz’s success in getting into the run-off tonight:

.

Sarah Palin

Dear Texans, please remember to vote today for Ted Cruz for U.S. Senate! 
 

The Cruz rise follows on from Palin’s remarkable success in assisting conservative candidates, who were outsiders and initially polling lowly, into becoming winners. Richard Mourdock in Indiana and Deb Fischer in Nebraska are the two latest, whom even Palin’s enemies have grudgingly admitted were assisted by her into the winners circle.

.
If Cruz is the last in the recent trifecta, then his win,or even his getting  into the run-off by denying Dewhurst a first round victory, will be perhaps the most remarkable of Palin’s picks, and her place as king maker will have to be accepted by the punditry.
.
 Of course, not all of Palin’s picks will win.That would be impossible, as some choices will have so little prospect of winning, even though they are of outstanding quality. However, her winning percentage is remarkable as is the enthusiasm her endorsements bring.
.
Here is the remarkable polling history for Cruz.
.
January 2011 Dewhurst 23% Cruz 3% (Dewhurst +20)
.
PALIN ENDORSES CRUZ MAY 10th; CRUZ CAMPAIGN REPORTS MASSIVE INTEREST
.
Post PALIN endorsement poll May 21st
.
Democrat Pollster PPP Polling (D)  on May 24th
Dewhurst 46%  Cruz 29%  (Dewhurst +17)
PPP also found this result:
.
.“Even though Rick Perry’s candidate is likely to defeat Sarah Palin’s, her endorsement polls much more positively. 36% of voters say they’re more inclined to back a Palin supported candidate to 21% who consider it a negative. Perry’s stock with Texas Republicans has fallen so far his endorsement is actually a net minus with 24% saying it would make them more inclined to vote for his candidate to 28% who say less likely.”
