Skip to comments.Sarah Palin endorses Bongino for Senate

Former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin has made another foray into Maryland politics, endorsing GOP candidate Dan Bongino in what she calls his "uphill battle" for the Senate, his campaign announced Monday.
In 2010, the former Alaska governor backed Republican Brian Murphy in his unsuccessful GOP primary bid against former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.
Bongino, a retired Secret Service agent, is challenging first-term Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin.
"Dan has seen what politicians have done to our country, and he's decided, 'If I'm not part of the solution, I'm part of the problem,'" Palin said in a statement released by the Bongino campaign. "He based his candidacy for U.S. Senate in Maryland on a strong commonsense conservative platform, won his primary, and is now fighting an uphill battle against a 45-year career politician who in fact inherited his first political office from his uncle at the tender age of 23 way back in 1967 and has been in elected office ever since.
"This is more than just a race of Republican vs. Democrat or conservative vs. liberal. It's about taking our country back from the career politicians in both parties who have spent us into debt, nearly taxed us to death, enriched themselves, rewarded their cronies at our expense, and have no vision to help the private sector create the jobs we need to get this economy moving again."
Bongino said he sought the support of the former Alaska governor "because she has a well-documented history of fighting against political insiders and establishment figures from both political parties driven by personal political aggrandizement rather than a desire to create a better tomorrow for our children."

Maryland “Freak State” PING!
I was wondering who “Bongino” was. Saw the campaign signs coming into Hagerstown, which is even more redneck than Fredneck.
Got my Bongino yard sign out.
Wish I asked for a bumper sticker when I donated.

Yes! Throw that little frogman Cardin out!
Ehrlich is running? I didn’t even know. Not a bad guy but since he is a 2 time loser for governor I don’t think he should bother.
Here is a political reason Palin towers over Romeny and all the rest of the rino’s....
Akin taking over the news cycles, and Palin strategically putting out her own dent to start changing the national topic to something else.
Kudos to Sarah!
Oh never mind, sorry. I misread. It said Palin endorsed Ehrlich’s opponent during his 2010 run for governor. I see he is not running for the Senate now.
I live in Maryland. Cardin is disgusting. It would take an earthquake for Bongino to win.
Akin won the MO primary though Sarah backed Steelman. With his foot planted firmly in his mouth, Akin looks like toast and has 19 hours to decide to withdraw. Sarah's choice is looking pretty good now, though she barely missed coming in second.
