Ricketts wins tight Nebraska GOP race for governor

Posted: Tuesday, May 13, 2014 11:38 pm | Updated: 11:49 pm, Tue May 13, 2014.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Wealthy Omaha businessman Pete Ricketts prevailed in a tightly contested Republican race for Nebraska governor on Tuesday, defeating the state’s longtime attorney general and four other contenders who sought to replace Gov. Dave Heineman.

Ricketts, 49, held a small lead over Bruning throughout the night.

Ricketts will be a heavy favorite in the November general election against Democrat Chuck Hassebrook, as Republicans have held the Nebraska governor’s office since 1999.

A former executive of TD Ameritrade, the online brokerage founded by his father, Ricketts won endorsements from some leading conservatives including Texas U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Ricketts also is a member of the board of the Chicago Cubs, the professional baseball team his family bought in 2009.

But his path to the nomination turned rocky in recent weeks, as he sparred with Bruning over negative television ads.

In his victory speech, Ricketts said he would make good on his promises to cut taxes in Nebraska.

“This is just the first step,” he said. “We are now on a journey that is going to take us to November. This is no time to let up. This has just begun, and we’ve got a lot of work left to do.”

FOX Cancels Palin’s Appearances for Tonight

I’m sorry Fox cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight because I sure
wanted to take the opportunity on the air to highlight Senator John
McCain’s positive contributions to America, to honor him, and to reflect
on what a biased media unfairly put him through four years ago tonight.
Granted, our honored and esteemed war hero has gone through much more
than the liberal media can ever do to him in their efforts to harm this
patriot. I look forward to hearing his words to his fellow Americans
tonight more than any of the other convention speeches. God bless John
McCain. Thank you for everything. And happy birthday, my friend.

Steele says Sarah Palin’s absence a ‘mistake’

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on August 28, 2012

Steele_michael3

Agreed!

From Politico:

Michael Steele said Tuesday it’s a “mistake” that Sarah Palin doesn’t have a role at the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

“I think it was a little bit of a mistake not to have Sarah Palin here,” the former Republican National Committee chairman said on MSNBC. “I
think she brings a level of energy and excitement that’s going to be important going forward into the general campaign… She’s the vice presidential nominee from 2008. Extend the invitation, give her a moment
to speak to the delegation, to the candidate and [their] families.”  More

Palin’s Segment with Mark Levin

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on August 28, 2012

Governor Sarah Palin was a guest on tonight’s Mark Levin Show where she expressed her opinion on the machine’s (RNC) power grab in Tampa today to consolidate power at the national level and take away power from the states.  Palin likened the power grab to to a thump on the conservative grassroots activists.

“Stiffen our spine individually and others around us will do the same and  it will be the unity we need”.

Sarah Palin Appreciation Week

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 27, 2012

Click on photo to view slideshow. 

SPIB is joining other Palin blogs this week in celebrating Governor Palin’s accomplishments over the 4 years since she emerged on the national scene as Senator John McCain’s vice presidential running mate. Sarah Palin Appreciation Week was the brain child of Jackie Siciliano, and the rest of us at SPIB are happy to participate in this project. We will be posting videos from and flashback articles about some of Governor Palin’s best speeches and most prominent moments. We would have loved it if Governor Palin had been a featured speaker this week at the RNC or, better yet, the Presidential nominee, but now we’re holding out for 2016. We hope to be able to call her Madame President at some point in the future when she decides it is the right time for her to run for office.

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?

Laura Ingraham and Newt Gingrich: Governor Palin Must Receive Invite to speak at Convention

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 17, 2012

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

It’s good to hear from other voices in the conservative movement who recognize that Governor Palin should be a speaker at the Republican National Convention. Laura Ingraham took to Twitter to express her views and even quoted former presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, who agrees:

Via Steve Flesher, here are images of those tweets:

Here’s the audio of Laura Ingraham’s conversation with Gingrich on her radio show:

Mark Levin Rips GOP Establishment & Credits Sarah Palin

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on April 26, 2012

Mark Levin rips into National Review Online, the GOP establishment (Bush team) and the current meme that Governor Sarah Palin was not properly vetted in 2008. Levin correctly states that “many of us voted for him (John McCain) because of her”.

“But not for her, John McCain would have been a bigger loser than he turned out to be.  The only energy in that campaign was the result of Sarah Palin.”

What if…?

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 30, 2012

Acknowledgingthecrowd_searchlightIn all honesty, there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of just how different this GOP primary season would have been with Sarah Palin in the mix.  Timothy Stanley, an Oxford University historian, correctly (in my opinion) lays out what this presidential campaign season might have looked like had Governor Sarah Palin declared her candidacy.

 

From CNN:

(CNN) — The Republican presidential primary hasn’t exactly overflowed with talent. In December, it was a roll call of the undesirable Right: Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, Paul, Perry, Huntsman and Bachmann — a list so long and bizarre that Count Dracula could have slipped in on the end and no one would have noticed. Except, as the citizens of Chicago will tell you, the dead always vote Democrat.

Now, we’re down to a final three, discounting Ron Paul, who, I’m guessing, is only staying in the race to collect air miles. Although the talent pool has shrunk, it has gotten no deeper. As Mitt Romney suffers defeat after defeat at the hands of Rick Santorum, whose chances of winning this thing aren’t high, his negatives mount up, and the president looks stronger by the day. The Republican Party is divided and in danger of becoming out of touch.

It didn’t have to be this way. If Sarah Palin had entered the contest, I’d hypothesize two alternative realities. One, she’d have the nomination sewn up by now. Two, she’d be running even in the polls with the president.

What have proved to be problems for the top three candidates wouldn’t have been problems for Palin. For starters, she has none of Newt Gingrich’s intellectual hubris. There’s no way Palin would have promised to put a mine on the moon or suggest arresting judges who make decisions that are too liberal. Her conservatism is far more domestic and down-to-Earth.  More
