Sarah Palin PAC goes on the march to reignite the right
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, is gearing up for 2014. Her SarahPAC came out with a video on Wednesday aimed at fueling the conservative fires for a dramatic comeback in the midterm elections.
The "Loaded for Bear" video features tea party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz talking of Mrs. Palin's successes in the 2010 election that saw the rise of Sens. Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Jeff Flake, Breitbart reports.
"Sarah Palin picks winners," Mr. Cruz says in the video. And the statement does hold truth. Former Sen. Jim DeMint, who now heads the Heritage Foundation, said in 2012 that an endorsement from Mrs. Palin "has more influence in primaries than any other endorsement right now," Breitbart reports.
The point: The Republican Party did it before. And it can do it again — with Mrs. Palin's help.
The video includes footage of Mrs. Palin's CPAC speech: "Don't let the big consultants, the big money men and the big bad media scare you off" from seeking office, she said. It's time for Republicans to "[rebuild] the middle class" and "to furlough the consultants."
