    It appears the former Alaska Governor's influence within the electorate continues to show itself as we head onward to November 2010.

    Palin's backing pays off for pals

    Some of Sarah Palin’s riskiest endorsements scored major victories Tuesday for the former Alaska governor, showing off her power in Republican primaries.


    Palin had four primary endorsements in play – Carly Fiorina, Nikki Haley, Terry Branstad and Cecile Bledsoe – and three won or moved on to a runoff.

    ...“Governor Palin’s endorsement was integral to the success of our campaign,” Fiorina spokeswoman Julie Soderlund told POLITICO. “She provides the ‘good housekeeping seal of approval’ for conservative, outsider candidates. After earning her endorsement we saw an immediate spike in support for Carly amongst conservatives, who represent the vast majority of Republican primary voters.”

    Campbell was the best bet to beat Boxer. If Palin wants to take credit for helping Fiorina beat him, well, best of luck with that.

    How appropriate that Carly Fiorina got Sister "Half-Term" Sarah's endorsement....what you could call Losers Of A Feather.....

    :rolleyes:


    I guess Sister Sarah never READ-about Carly Fiorina, beforehand.

    It would appear it is an Obama endoresement that is the kiss of death!

    Word is Harry Reid is hoping for a Palin endorsement these days...
