Palin: T.W. Shannon, Chris McDaniel, Rob Maness Can Topple Establishment Like Dave Brat

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said Dave Brat's shocking victory over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) on Tuesday can give momentum to conservative Senate candidates in Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Louisiana.

Chris McDaniel has a runoff against incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) on June 24, which is the same day T.W. Shannon battles establishment Rep. James Lankford (R-OK) to replace retiring Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK).

"You shocked the political world and reminded D.C. that power lies with We the People and not any conventional party establishment," Palin said after Brat's win, saying it "showed the power of the local grassroots – the ones with boots on the ground who put up the campaign signs and go door to door to provide needed support for great candidates." Palin thanked "those with powerful microphones like Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Ann Coulter and others who recognized Dave’s strengths and had the guts to provide him a megaphone to reach concerned citizens," and also said she hopes "there's more where that came from" if conservatives "get behind great Senate candidates like T.W. Shannon in Oklahoma, Rob Maness in Louisiana, and Chris McDaniel in Mississippi."

"Their primary elections are just around the corner and they'll help ignite the fire America needs to heat our economy, keep us safe, and put government back on the side of the people!" she said.

If Maness can get ahead of Cassidy by November and comes in 2nd to Landrieu in November, then there will be a runoff in December. Election day for the rest of us is Primary day for Louisiana (unless one candidate gets over 50%).

It is getting pretty entertaining. I’m not letting up till the returns are in on the 24th but I think McDaniel will be Mississippi’s next senator.

I’m so glad that Sarah is sticking with Rob Maness in Louisiana. The GOP Establishment has already anointed Bill Cassidy as the GOP candidate to face off with Mary Landrieu. I watched Sean Hannity interview him. The guy keeps a sickening, phony grin on his face the whole time he’s being interviewed. And, he was not all that sharp in answering the questions. I was pissed that Hannity gave him free, national airtime and gave none to Maness.
