Skip to comments.In endorsement battle, score one for DeMint over Palin
Posted on 08/04/2010 1:02:41 PM PDT by pissant
This time a Sarah Palin endorsement wasn't enough for victory. But score another win for Sen. Jim DeMint.
Rep. Todd Tiahrt was edged out by Rep. Jerry Moran in a battle between two conservative congressmen for the Republican Senate nomination in Kansas. Moran is now considered the overwhelming favorite in November's general election to succeed GOP Sen. Sam Brownback, who is running for Kansas governor rather than for re-election to Congress.
Tiahrt was endorsed by the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee in June. In a Facebook post, Palin said Tiahrt was "a protector of our Constitution, a pro-family, pro-Second Amendment commonsense conservative who has never voted for a tax increase."

F... the media. I like both DeMint and Palin. Palin’s record on these endorsements dwarf Jim’s so far, but they’ll take the opportunity to bash Palin when her record on these is significant. It also doesn’t take into account the ground her candidate gained since the endorsement.
O BOY IT’S THE MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY PISSANT PALIN BASH THREADS!
Friggin press trying to make something out of nothing.
Pissant...with is continually Palin bashing....please!
It’s up to Tiahrt to run a good campaign not up to Sarah to run it for him....btw Moran was endorsed by McCain....
Who is the real conservative between these two?
I know they are trying to put in as many RINOS as they can.
Their(CNN) hate for Sarah is so strong. Can you say propaganda
Tell us Mr PISSANT exactally WHAT did Sarah EVER do to YOU to merit all of the “attention” from You?
If the Republican nomination battle narrows down to DeMint and Palin, I could enthusiastically support either. And the enemedia would have a royal hissy fit!
Both are very conservative. Anyone who says otherwise is just an idiot.
For all her good qualities, Sarah is trying to cram McCain back down our throats here in AZ. Why she would promote this RINO is frankly beyond reason. So, I am hoping that she is wrong at least one more time.
“...WHAT did Sarah EVER do to YOU to merit all of the attention from You?”
I wonder the same thing. Heck, two years ago I gave money to Hunter but gee this time I would run across the street to be on a dif side from the ant.
Has Sarah done ANYTHING for McPain since early in the campaign? Have any of you AZ Freeps heard anything from her lately?
pissant elated that conservative lost.
Film at 11.
Palin has NOT appeared with McCain since early spring. She has been back to AZ a couple of times and appeared with Gov. Brewer, but not McCain.
I agree with you.
You wanna know what these spotlight endorsements are really about?? They do serve a purpose, you know. In every case it is about the endorser! These pols are building a base by chit trading for a future campaign run, for one position or another, to enlarge their profile, and for influence with perceived constituencies that will enhance the nether regions of the endorsers. These obsessions of one-upmanship on endorsement victories is synonomous with 4th grade class politics and beneath the dignity of serious grassrooters.
Tiahrt is the more conservative, but Moran is not a RINO by any means.
Thats the truth. Both are very conservative.
Jim Demint 2012. He’ll be the next Republican leader in the Senate.
