Framing the Mississippi Senate primary as a "clear fight for the future of the Republican Party against the entrenched interests of the permanent political class in D.C.," former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed conservative Mississippi state Senator Chris McDaniel on Thursday in his upstart bid against six-term incumbent Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran, who admitted that he was unfamiliar with the Tea Party movement that has put the Washington establishment on alert.
"The Mississippi Senate race is a clear fight for the future of the Republican Party against the entrenched interests of the permanent political class in D.C. We desperately need new conservative leaders in the U.S. Senate who will serve with passion, intelligence, and integrity."
UPDATE: McDaniel told Breitbart News that Palin's endorsement will help him and his campaign "end the rule of the permanent political class in Washington, D.C.":
"Governor Sarah Palin's endorsement is very important in the state of Mississippi. We Mississippians are conservatives, and we share Sarah Palins passion for limited government, lower taxes, traditional values, and constitutional liberties. This is a grassroots movement driven by the people of Mississippi, so there's no question Gov. Palin's endorsement will help motivate people to get behind this campaign to end the rule of the permanent political class in Washington, D.C."

Sarah Palin is a gusty lady and this is her most high-risk endorsement. The entire Republican establishment fears that McDaniel is the Second Coming of Richard Mourdock and that if Cochran loses the primary, a Democrat will win the general.
Are there any Freepers from Mississippi? I’d especially like to hear your opinions. My heart supports McDaniel, but my intellect says to stick with Cochran.
Gusty ? :-P
McDaniel is not only the clear choice for Mississippi Conservatives, he is the only choice. Cochran has had 42 years in Congress, and it is long past time for a change, especially when he is doing nothing to halt the disastrous situation in DC.
We can’t stand Thad. The problem is he does bring home the bacon. Mississippi collect almost $2.00 from the feds. for every tax dollar we send up there. There will be a lot of pain but Thad needs to go. Of course the establishment is against McDaniel. They are actively fighting most tea party moves in the state. We are slowly pushing them out in various counties but they are fighting tooth and nail. Old boy networks that need to be rooted out and replaced.
We are at war with the Republican establishment for the most part. The backstabbing has already begun. It will get nasty but it will be worth it.
Anybody think he is lying? Unlike Democrats and Muslims, Republicans at least try to keep to keep their ship clean of vermin.
I hope you all get your RINO out. Here in Texas we tried but now we’ll have a Demoncrap Senator because many of us will not be voting for Cornrows in the general election.
I got into it last week with a FReeper from Kansas who wants nothing but the perfect candidate, then goes ahead and sticks with Pat "Thank You Sir May I have another?" Roberts.
Play it Safe or shoot for the moon?
Well at the risk of sounding cliche, you shoot for the moon even if you miss you land among the stars.
NO MORE RINOS!
I am DONE compromising my Principles for them.
This is what I did with the Pledge Form Roberts Sent Me.
And sent it back on their dime.
Same here. His ads he ran was outright lying - I will not vote for him.
She does have a 95% record on endorsements for winners she chooses.
Better than Clinton or Rove, who are mired @ 15% success for horses asses they back.
I have children who weren’t yet born when “we’ve THAD ENOUGH” first went to Washington, D.C.!
Good grief. He hasn’t the sense to retire, so get the hell out of there, power-hungry, corrupt, old fossil, big spender incumbent!”
I think that you may have misspelled that word.
Really? Oh wow!
How long has he been in?
Shoot he probably got elected before YOU were born onyx dear :)
THAD ENOUGH has been in Washington DC for over 42 years!
And guess what else?
Like Trent Lott, old Thad is a former CHEER LEADER!
Here in Texas we tried but now well have a Demoncrap Senator .....
Possible, but I don’t think that will happen.
My parents were 15 when that guy was first elected.
Gah to his picture but you look as beautiful as ever!!!!
