Gov. Palin predicts a political earthquake in Louisana next Tuesday for Rob Maness

Here’s a man of true grit and a servant’s heart who knows full well when road kill needs to go. Our government must have the values we see in Col. Rob Maness to function properly. I hope Louisianans will send him to Washington because he’s the real deal – heck he fixes his own truck and he’ll do the same in Washington to fix the broken machine there!

Palin Predicts “Shocker” in Louisiana Senate Race

By Scott Conroy – October 30, 2014

All of the polls are forecasting a runoff election in Louisiana next month between incumbent Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu and Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy.

But former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin sees it differently.

In a statement to RealClearPolitics, the 2008 vice presidential nominee predicted that her preferred candidate in the race — long-shot GOP contender Rob Maness — will pull off a major surprise on Election Day.

“Like a gator in the swamp, Col. Rob Maness may have been seen as sharply lurking, but is now ready to pounce,” Palin said in the statement. “It is time. This is the election that will be the shocker on Tuesday.”

[…]

ut Maness, a retired Air Force colonel, has generated some enthusiasm within the GOP grassroots and has won endorsements from several prominent conservative media figures, including Palin, Mark Levin, and Glenn Beck.

Maness has also received the financial backing of the Senate Conservatives Fund — a super PAC founded by former South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint.

Palin has been particularly emphatic in her support for Maness, traveling to Louisiana last month to campaign for him and characterizing him as “the only conservative in the race.”

Meanwhile, Cassidy has the backing of the National Republican Senatorial Committee and an array of prominent statewide and national Republican leaders.

In her statement to RCP, Palin appeared to revel in the act of sticking her thumb in the eye of the Republican “machine” that has coalesced around Cassidy, as she predicted that Louisiana would be “the epicenter of a political earthquake on Tuesday.”

“The GOP machine should never have broken promises,” Palin wrote in the statement. “They got involved in an open Republican primary because they don’t respect the wisdom of the people. They chose their guy, and now as they work against the Maness momentum they’re scurrying around with desperate lies in an attempt to swallow him up.”

An NRSC spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.

Read Palin’s full statement below:

Like a gator in the swamp, Col. Rob Maness may have been seen as sharply lurking, but is now ready to pounce. It is time. This is the election that will be the shocker on Tuesday. 

The media bought into the false premise that this is a typical partisan establishment tiff between go-along-to-get-along politicians, Landrieu and Cassidy, and they’re missing the boat. Like that Louisiana alligator who can dominate the swamp, Maness is ready to be on top of D.C.’s food chain and devour the crony capitalism that runs wild in government. Status quo politicians like Landrieu had their chance to clean it up, but the establishment has partaken of the grub far too long, and voters know this. 

The GOP machine should never have broken promises. They got involved in an open Republican primary because they don’t respect the wisdom of the people. They chose their guy, and now as they work against the Maness momentum they’re scurrying around with desperate lies in an attempt to swallow him up. Polls show the “expert” Washington consultants bet on the wrong horse. Their anointed candidate has a long record of liberal votes, many of those votes were quite recent. A survey I saw reveals Cassidy voted with Obama on 35 key votes, and he’s even voted for Sen. Landrieu, and dissed Ronald Reagan! Look, it’s most telling that the political machine’s deputized one won’t even show up at debates to defend his record. No wonder he’s slithering down in the polls and this race is slipping away from the GOP. It’s because Louisiana voters know they deserve better than Cassidy’s M.O. 

I’ve been to Louisiana and seen the momentum — Col. Maness is the only conservative in the race and the clearest contrast and strongest pick to take on Mary Landrieu. His real life record of service, work ethic, positive policy ideas and commonsense resonates with voters. Here he’s fighting two powerful forces — two consummate politicians and both parties’ establishments — yet he’s the one showing real strength and keeping it positive. He’ll prevail because he’s fought and won tougher real life battles. 

The momentum IS on Col. Maness’ side. The Louisiana primary system is the freest in the country and the GOP oppresses that freedom by working against him with false scare tactics and calling this good man a “spoiler” or “vote splitter,” and their attempts to shoot him down are backfiring. Louisianans are realizing there is little difference in voting for the two politicians in this race, and they’re looking to make their vote count and actually make a difference. They’re seeing they have the choice to send Washington a message, and that’s why I’m confident Louisiana will be the epicenter of a political earthquake on Tuesday with their vote for Rob Maness.

Gov. Palin reminisces about Halloween 2008 while Piper on hoops tour in Oregon

#FlashbackFriday reminds me of how fast they grow up. Piper had the opportunity to experience Halloween on the campaign trail with me in 2008. The Secret Service and press corps even got in on the fun. Poor Piper had to sit and watch while our awesome Secret Service guys went through her candy piece by piece checking it out. Our children bring us joy each day and seeing the world through their eyes reminds us all of what is to be experienced no matter where we are. Hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween. Share your flashback Halloween pictures in the comment section – would love to see them!

What an opportunity! Piper and her basketball team are traveling to Oregon for a girl’s hoops tour. This is so good for expanding the student-athletes’ worldview. I’ll bet it makes the girls open their eyes to the world beyond their own hometown; it will surely allow a greater appreciation for “home” and the security only home can provide, and the cursory “advantages” of being Outside. Telling, the only picture Piper’s sent so far is from a Jack in the Box counter, thinking it so unique because we don’t have one here up North. (I’m sure she’ll find inspiration in venues beyond Jack in the Box on this trip!) They WILL see evidence though of America’s beauty everywhere we look.– Sarah Palin———————-
