Sarah Palin endorsements do well……

[ Haley and Palin ]

No matter what anyone says….

She IS a media star…

Her endorsements seem to do well…..


Sarah Palin batted three for four (with an asterisk) in primary endorsements Tuesday, and though Cecile Bledsoe’s loss in Arkansas’ 3rd District dropped her 2010 record in congressional matchups to 5-4, she’s perfect so far in gubernatorial races.

If Nikki Haley (the asterisk) wins the June 22 runoff in South Carolina’s GOP race for governor, that would further validate Palin’s endorsement power. The former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate came out for Haley personally in mid-May at a campaign rally, instead of merely tweeting or writing a Facebook note, as she’s done for other candidates.

And when two GOP operatives came forward to say they had flings with Haley, Palin stuck with her candidate. Last week, voters received robocalls from Palin urging their support for Haley, whom she’d also defended on Twitter and Facebook.

In two other races, Palin would be wise to help her preferences mend fences with supporters of the more conservative candidates they defeated Tuesday.

In California, Palin endorsed Carly Fiorina early in Mayand made robocalls on the candidate’s behalf in recent days. After winning Tuesday, Fiorina now takes on Sen. Barbara Boxer in what should be an epic battle given Boxer’s 28 years in Congress and the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive’s deep pockets. Will Fiorina call on Palin for help in the general election? The former governor might be a hit with voters in more conservative parts of the state, but she could be a liability with independents.

  1. Of course! Palin is very popular with the base of the GOP that determines primary races. And vastly unpopular with everyone else. So I say more GOP candidates with the Palin stamp of approval–MORE!

  2. He, he, he….

    Her brand is strong though….

    Leaving the Alaska Governorship was the best thing she ever did……

  3. Wheel out Scott Brown, the Democrats will frown.

    Now in Nevada however, this is a vote against both Reid and Ensign. Reid will REALLY have to be hated for the Tea Partier to be elected. Those polls over the summer should be interesting.

    Note to Reid supporters: Never run a campaign that depends on the intelligence of the American voter.
