Sarah Palin endorses Fischer for Senate

By   /   May 9, 2012  /   News  /   9 Comments

Former Alaska Gov. and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has endorsed Sen. Deb Fischer for the U.S. Senate in Nebraska.

“I’m incredibly honored to receive the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin and Todd Palin,” Fischer said in a press release. “I greatly admire their willingness to stand on conservative principle and their resolve in standing up to the political establishment.”

The Fischer campaign released a note Fischer received from Palin yesterday, in which Palin said she’s been watching the Nebraska Senate race closely.

“Your efforts remind us of those our family put forth for Sarah’s races here in Alaska,” Palin wrote. “Winning over voters through personal interactions is the way to go. People are tired of outside interests spending millions of dollars in political attack ads. We’re glad to see your grassroots efforts paying off! We admire your conservative principles and know that you will not go to Washington to amass great wealth or power. You will go to Washington to serve the people of Nebraska, protect our Constitution and work for common sense solutions to help restore America.”

Palin said her political action committee, SarahPAC, will send a financial contribution to Fischer’s campaign.  

“The Palins are in your corner,” the note concluded.

Attorney General Jon Bruning was recently endorsed by former presidential candidate Rick Santorum, and State Treasurer Don Stenberg won the endorsement of Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul. The primary election is on Tuesday.

    Palin and Fischer, not ready for prime time.

  • Political Scientist

    Wow Deena, You reported on Palins endorsement of Fischer, but you have not reported on Santorums endorsement of Bruning. You report on Fischer’s “poll” and failed to note that Aaron Trost works for the polling firms. You fail to report the poll that shows Bruning still up big. A poll that was published in Real Clear Politics. You should be ashamed for your reporting.

  • ✔ Good job Deena!

    ✔ Congrats to Deb Fischer!

    ✔ Kudos to Todd and Governor Palin!

    What has Fischer done, other than marry a rich rancher? This is Bruning’s race. The sooner the rest of the party realizes, the better off we are.

    Sorry but when last election losers endorse you (Palin and Santorum) you have to wonder who is going to show up and vote for you. Particularly in the last days of the election. The race is wide open.

  • Political Scientist

    @Anon I hate to tell you but Santorum was going to win Nebraska before he dropped out. He has a lot more street cred then reality star Sarah Palin.

    Mike, The only reason Deb’s husband is a “rich rancher” is because of the MILLIONS and MILLIONS of dollars of free grazing that family has received for 3 generations!

    Also, according to Deb’s Financial Disclosure Form, their liabilities are in the range of $1.7 MILLION to $6.5 MILLION!

    WHY, after receiving all those MILLIONS of dollars of welfare does Deb have ANY liabilities?

    How can she have any credibility while claiming to be a ‘fiscal conservative’ when she owes all that money?

  • What!?

    Warren Buffet couldn’t help Deb win (buy) this race.

    Oh, my my. Mike, did Bruning promise you something too. That’s okay you will find out pretty soon how he really is. Only thing I am positive about right now is I am not voting for Bruning. Seriously people, think for yourself. Look at his record, read about the questionable things he has done. Mike, you sound like you are jealous of Deb. Really, she just married a rich rancher? Who cares! How do you think Bruning got his money? I think you need to decide if you want a a senator without ethics representing you. I would question why anyone would want to vote for him and maybe their ethics. Peace
