Palin to stump for Steelman in Missouri
The Washington Times ^ | August 2, 2012 | Paige Winfield Cunningham

Posted on 08/02/2012 3:58:25 PM PDT by jazusamo

Sarah Palin will spend her Friday evening at a picnic in rural Missouri where she'll serve food with Sarah Steelman, aiming to give the former state treasurer a final leg up in one of the country's hottest primary races for U.S. Senate.

Mrs. Steelman has spent the last few months in a fierce three-way battle for the GOP nomination with former Rep. Todd Akin and St. Louis businessman John Brunner. The winner will face Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in the fall.

With only a few days left before Tuesday's primary, the candidates are canvassing the state...

Sweet!! Here’s hoping we have Sarah Steelman joining Ted Cruz in the Senate come January. I’ve feeling good the past few days—time to go get some Chick-Fil-A nuggets and a cookies and cream milkshake.

She’s a true “Mama Grizzly”. A true conservative and the furthest thing from a “go along to get along type”.

Aside from Akin, Brunner and Steelman, there is another Republican candidate who is running for U.S. Senate against Claire McCaskill.

Hector Maldonado is a naturalized citizen of Mexican ancestry. I had the honor of meeting Hector Madonado at a Tea Party last December. He is a good family man and has served in the U.S. Army and presently holds the rank of Major in the Missouri National Guard. If you want to help us defeat Claire McCaskill, and win a majority in the Senate, please find it in your heart to support Hector Maldonado with your prayers or donation, or both.

Recently, Maldonado took the time to travel to Arizona and interview Sheriff Joe about border control.

I plan on voting for Todd Akin in Tuesday's primary, but if Steelman wins the nomination, I'll certainly vote for her over ObamaClaire McCaskill. I'd also vote for John Brunner over ObamaClaire, even though I really don't like Brunner's negative ads.

Palin's endorsement has no effect on me, one way or the other.

The Tea Party Express is on it. Check out the ad link below.

We must take our momentum from the Ted Cruz victory and focus it on Tea Party Express endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Sarah Steelman
.
We have been telling you about conservative U.S. Senate candidate Sarah Steelman since the Tea Party Express endorsed her earlier this year.  We believe that the former Missouri State Treasurer is the best candidate to take on and defeat ultra-liberal incumbent Claire McCaskill. 

With all of the political world's focus on the Senate election in Texas, which resulted in Tea Party candidate Ted Cruz's victory, the Missouri race has been over-shadowed.  We are sounding the alarm that the election is this Tuesday - 4 DAYS FROM NOW!

In some respects, the Missouri U.S. Senate race is even more important as we have a shot to take out an ultra-liberal incumbent in Claire McCaskill and take control of the Senate.  While most of our staff and resources were focused on Texas, we have been concurrently running TV ads statewide in Missouri for conservative Sarah Steelman over the past week. 
.
.
.

We need to send representatives to Washington D.C. that recognize that our federal government has a spending problem and that take their job duties seriously.    Sarah Steelman is just that person and we need your support to help her defeat out of touch Sen. McCaskill.  Please make a contribution today.

Tea Party Express Endorsed Missouri Senate Candidate Sarah Steelman
>
Liberal Sen. McCaskill is vulnerable as Americans are fed up with her strong support of Pres. Obama's efforts to grow the size and control of the Federal Government in Washington.  McCaskill can not run on her record, but her large fundraising war-chest will go a long way in attacking and maligning her conservative opponent - former Missouri State Treasurer Sarah Steelman.

Sarah is the perfect candidate to replace Sen. Claire McCaskill, one of Washington’s most liberal senators and we need your support to make sure that she represents the Tea Party in Washington D.C.
SARAH TIMES TWO!

Obama ally and liberal Democratic Sen. McCaskill has got to go!

One of Tea Party Express’ top priorities in 2012 is to elect a conservative majority to the U.S. Senate, and we are confident that Sarah Steelman is the candidate in Missouri best suited for the job.
.
Please help Sarah Steelman match the war-chest of McCaskill by making a donation to our campaign to take back the Senate - Donate Here
 
Steelman’s unabashed economic conservative record combined with the experience of running statewide races has prepared her to take on Senator McCaskill in what will be a tough race. We must defeat McCaskill in November, and we are ready to fight alongside Sarah in the coming months. Her early and strong support four years ago for Barack Obama revealed her true liberal inclinations to grow the government in Washington.
.
Americans are demanding real solutions to the fiscal woes facing our nation. Sarah Steelman’s understanding of the economy and experience managing Missouri’s $19 billion annual revenue and over $3 billion in investments in the state’s portfolio have prepared her to tackle the issues McCaskill has failed to address during her past 5 years in Washington.

Eagle-you asked for a ping if someone had some facts on Sarah Steelman...

She has been endorsed by:

Maggie's List-Goal is to elect conservative women

Susan B. Anthony-Pro-Life

Tea Party Express

48 conservative Missouri Congressmen.

Steelman is a Board member of the Missouri Club for Growth. She is, and has been a STRONG supporter of RKBA. Strong supporter of NRA/GOA.

She favors MAJOR tax reform. Not a mere tweaking of the system.

Sounds conservative to me...

If they are against her, Steelman must be against illegal immigration.

Most everyone I know says Steelman is the least conservative & they wish Palin had done a better job researching. I’ve also heard she is a poor speaker & there is concern about her ability to debate. That being said, any of us will gladly vote for whoever wins the nomination. In Southeast Missouri Brunner appears to be way ahead. He’s a good man & not a politician. Steelman is not trusted to stand up against the party.........

Hector Maldonado is self-described “Lincolnian Republican conservative.”

Some people may remember him from the 2010 primary Senate race when he ran against Roy Blunt..........

Senate-seeker wants Obama birth-certificate treatment - Mexican-born candidate: ‘If I didn’t prove citizenship, I’d be removed from the ballot’ -

By Chelsea Schilling - A Mexican-born candidate for U.S. Senate said he is considering a lawsuit against the Missouri secretary of state for discrimination because her office forced him to produce a birth certificate but “didn’t make Obama show proof of citizenship” to appear on the ballot.

Maldonado, a U.S. Army combat veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, explains on his website that he became a U.S. citizen in 1995. But he said Secretary of State Robin Carnahan sent him a letter in May asking him to produce documentation.......

I heard all three, Akin, Brunner and Steelman speak at the MO GOP convention last June and Steelman failed to impress me with her mediocre speaker abilities. Can’t say much about Brunner but his crew did pass out free hand sanitizer.

Representative Todd Akin sent out letters to constituents in April asking for support to bring charges against the Obama/McCaskill Team in a court of public opinion. He presented a list of sixteen charges.

Here are just a few.......

* Failing to uphold the oath to protect the US Constitution by making “recess appointments” when the Congress was not in recess.

* Taking us into war in Libya without Congressional authorization.

* Authorizing “Gay Marriage” in the military in violation of Federal Law (DOMA)

* Passed “ObamaCare” the takeover of healthcare by the Federal Government.

* Increased the deficit by 180% since 2008 and run up the largest deficit in U.S. history.

* Blocked the “Keystone Pipeline” project which would have provided jobs, improved America’s energy infrastructure, and reduced our dependence on foreign oil.

* Used taxpayer dollars to give grants to the failed green energy science project Solyndra (Solyndra subsequently went bankrupt).

*Oversaw, Fast and Furious, an operation under Eric Holder which allowed suspicious individuals to buy hundreds of guns in Mexico resulting in the subsequent death of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.

*Required birth control and sterilization services to be covered in health care ignoring religious institutions and the 1st Amendment. Later changed their mind when it became clear that everyone was outraged.
# # #

EXCUSE ME! As I recall the Constitution gives the House of Representatives the power to impeach a president! Akin needs to take his list and stand on the House floor and read it off to the entire group of Representatives and ask for THEIR support to bring charges against Obama. But he won’t.

They’re all cowards. That’s why I’m supporting Hector Maldonado. We need men and women of integrity and courage, not a room full of eunuchs.

I second those remarks. I am a conservative Christian and resident of Missouri and am shocked at the shallow comments posted here. Steelman is NOT to be trusted and Palin doesn’t always get it correct in her endorsements. I watched the Republican candidates debate a month or so ago and Steelman was woefully unprepared, unable to provide coherent answers to straightforward questions. Akin is very good; almost too slick but has a fairly solid voting record. I am a skeptic when it comes to returning the very same incumbents to office who have not performed to get our budget balanced. I am leaning towards Brunner because he is an outsider, followed by Akin. There’s no chance I will vote for Steelman; only in general election over McCaskill if I must.
