Skip to comments.EXCLUSIVE: Palin throws down gaunlet on primary challenge to Rubio, Ayotte
Posted on 06/25/2013 10:18:13 PM PDT by Bigtigermike
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who has the most influence among conservative voters in Republican primaries, told Breitbart News on Tuesday that Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) should be primaried for their support of the Senate's immigration bill.
Conservatives are getting ready for the 2014 and 2016 primaries. We have long memories, and there will be consequences for those who break campaign promises and vote for this amnesty bill," Palin told Breitbart News. "Competition makes everyone work harder, be better, and be held accountable. This applies to politics, too. No one is entitled to anything."
She continued, "Rigorous debate in competitive primaries allows candidates the opportunity to explain their flip-flops. So think of contested primaries as a win-win for politicians and their voters."
Palin responded to Breitbart News's request for comment about an interview she did earlier on Tuesday with John Gibson on Fox News radio in which she said Rubio and Ayotte "turned their back" on voters and should be primaried to be held accountable. Rubio and Ayotte will be up for reelection in 2016.

Oops! I mean no more pulling the lever holding our noses
Sarah is fighting the good fight!! Go Sarah!!
She might be the only thing that could keep the MSM from selecting our next presidential candidate (as they have in the last two presidential elections).
Sarah along with Ted Cruz and a few others are the only ones speaking up and not afraid to say it like it is!
no mention of John McCain?
To be fair I believe the radio interview asked about Rubio and Ayotte specifically and not McVain or Grahmasty or anyone else
I should think THAT is a given.
God Bless her heart. Go Sarah!
Ok, and how many rigorous debates has Palin done ? Oh that's right, she could have done them in last year's presidential primary but chickened out or was unprepared or was just not interested.
Thanks all I have to say. She is an amazing woman and critical voice for these very evil times. No one can touch this woman who is against her because she also stands with God.
I know everyone will hate me for saying this, but something in the way Sarah talks annoys me to hear it, but seeing a written transcript, she has a lot of sense. She is right on here... Besides I am moving towards Ted Cruz for 2016...
You’re a one trick pony...
thanks =that’s. long night can barely type. lol.

Yeah? So that means mccain,rubio,boener, (Hell, practically EVERY republican except Ted Cruz and a few other good souls) will be removed from office? Seems to me that damn near every one of them has broken their promisses and sold their souls to the left- How abotu oging after the big wig rinos who have doen htem ost damage to our country?
It’s her high squeaky tones. she could easily change it with vocal coaches but she says, “Nah. This is me. Deal with it.” Gotta love Sarah.
recall has already started for McCain. I know she’s in kind of a tough spot with McCain and Graham.
She has a good mind, but she is hard to listen to.
