Posted on 05/16/2012 6:51:30 AM PDT by Justaham
Just two weeks ago, the battle for the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate seat in Nebraska was between state Attorney General Jim Bruning and state Treasurer Don Stenburg. Neither inspired the growing base of conservative voters. They were, to be charitable, standard conservative-ish career politicians. Mama Grizzly Sarah Palin shook up the race with a late endorsement of state Senator Debby Fischer. It made all the difference.
I follow politics very closely, yet I hadn't heard of the Fischer candidacy until Palin's endorsement. National tea party groups like FreedomWorks had put all their resources behind Stenburg, with nary a thought about Fischer. A good reminder that these groups aren't as plugged into the grassroots as they like to claim.

Don’t know anything about her, but how does she stack up against Kerrey?
The GOP-e candidate who came in second, as well as DeMint (who had endorsed the 3rd placed finisher) immediately endorsed her and said now is the time for all republicans to get behind her.
I think Sarah deserves another shot at the VP spot. How much more can she be vetted? Every stone has been overturned and every lie told...........
“Be fearless. Have courage. Stand for something. “
I still like him, but, I’m a little disappointed in Jim DeMint. He can make endorsements and put his 2 cents worth of his opinion in when asked, but he did not have the guts to run in 2012. That was a loss for the Conservative movement.
Palin/Romney would work. Romney could be a half way decent VP. And in my opinion a lousy President.
Did Rove just crap in his nickers?
......former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee supported Bruning, who maintained a fundraising and organizational lead.....
Huckabee: Another one, like DeMint, who did not have the guts to run this year. I’m glad Huckabee’s guy lost and DeMint’s dude came in third with only 19%. Ha! Sarah kicked butt.
Sarah would make an excellent Energy Secretary under Romney if given a clear mandate (and free reign) to get America truly energy independent in 8 years.
Romney, Chosen Loser by the DNC, RNME, and GOPe,
should pull out and save America.
But Romney is for ... Romney.
Glad to hear Palin still wields some serious clout in the GOP. Question is.. will Fischer pull off the win in November? This state was considered an easy pickup for the GOP. Is it still?
She is such a breath of fresh air. She’s positive, has faith, is solid in her Conservative convictions...she truly is Reagan’s heir.
Good for them- that's how it's supposed to be done. Dick Lugar should be taking notes.
Media news rooms and liberal opinion writers must be completely confused on how to spin this..
Harry Reid said “the TEA Party will disappear as the economy improves.”
