Gov. Palin Could Extend Winning Streak to 5:5 Senate Endorsees With Steelman Win Today

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 7, 2012

Exellent article by Amy Walter posted at ABCNews today:

Can Sarah Palin Win the Gold With Republican Endorsements?

Analysis:

Thus far, the former VP candidate Sarah Palin has endorsed four Senate candidates in competitive Republican primaries. All four have won.

Tomorrow, she could extend that winning streak to five if Republican former Missouri state Treasurer Sarah Steelman, for whom Palin stumped this weekend, wins a three-way GOP primary contest.

Like any good athlete, Palin has an impeccable sense of timing. And, she’s keenly aware of the environment in which she’s competing.

Despite the fact that the Tea Party failed to field a credible presidential candidate, the mood of the GOP primary electorate remains as anti-establishment as ever.

Palin is clearly aware of this. She has sided with the non-establishment candidate in each of the four contests. Even her endorsement of long-term incumbent Sen. Orrin Hatch is not the outlier that it looks like at first glance. Having learned the lessons of 2010, Hatch’s campaign worked hard to woo Tea Party types. He re-packaged himself as an uncompromising partisan fighter. He may not have been a Tea Party candidate back in 2008, but he sure acted like one in 2012.

Also helping to fuel Palin’s success is the fact that she tends to wait until late in the game to bestow her blessing on a candidate. Her political fundraising arm, SarahPAC, donated to Indiana’s Richard Mourdock just eleven days before his Republican primary victory over Sen. Richard Lugar. The PAC gave $5,000 to Nebraska’s Deb Fisher just four days before her primary. And in Texas, where Ted Cruz upset GOP Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Palin’s PAC sent a check 18 days before the May 29 primary.

But a check from Palin is less important than her voice.

“The important thing is she’s had a tremendous impact with no money. She doesn’t lead with her chin. It’s not about her writing checks, it’s about her presence and her commitment,” said Steve Bannon, a Palin friend and the Executive Chairman of the conservative website Breitbart News.

Bannon said it is no accident that Palin is endorsing more candidates in Senate races.

“She’s focused on the senate. That’s where she’s putting her effort…Obviously they are winning, but I don’t think it’s just about winning, it’s about sending a message. Even if the streak comes to an end she’s backing anti establishment people,” he said.

Greta: Palin has had the greatest influence on GOP primary results

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 7, 2012

.

Greta van Susteren had  this to say on her blog yesterday:

In the past few months, Governor Sarah Palin has had enormous success getting long shot candidates the nominations in their party.  No one has come close to influencing primaries as much as she has.  In major races, her endorsements have been credited with making the difference between who wins and who does not.  Here are some samples: Ted Cruz (Texas), Deb Fisher (Nebraska), Richard Mourdock (Indiana) and she was credited with having an influence on Senator Orrin Hatch winning a hotly contested primary in Utah.   She has just thrown her weight behind Sarah Steelman in Missouri…and people are now watching that race.

Ask yourself, does any single person in the Republican Party wield such influence with the Republican voters?  Perhaps Governor Romney and the RNC better give her a prominent speaking role at the convention?

  • Last Friday, I had a wonderful time meeting more Missouri voters at a great event to get out the vote for Sarah Steelman in tomorrow’s election. Sarah has a solid track record as a reformer and can be relied upon to be a voice of integrity and strong conservative principles in the U.S. Senate. I encourage Show Me State patriots to get out and vote for Sarah Steelman tomorrow, and encourage your friends and family to join you.
