Governor Palin Endorses Sarah Steelman
"I am deeply honored and humbled to have earned the endorsement of Governor Palin, whose willingness to stand up and fight for what is right, regardless of the political consequences, has blazed a trail for conservatives who believe as we do, that the status quo has got to go. I am ready to join Governor Palin and lead the fight in the Senate to restore fiscal discipline and speak truth to power by putting this country back into the hands of the people!" said Steelman.
Sarah Steelman requested Governor Palin's support at the onset of her campaign for US Senate. Today Governor Palin released the following statement in support of Sarah Steelman's campaign:
As we seek to fundamentally restore our great nation to strength and prosperity, we must send more commonsense conservatives to the U.S. Senate. We need sincere public servants who will fight for us, not the special interests and the permanent political class in Washington. Sarah Steelman will fight for all of Missouri and all of us, and that is why we must send her to D.C. this fall.
Sarah Steelman is running as a common-sense conservative in the August 7th Republican primary to challenge Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill. McCaskill has been a rubberstamp for the Obama/Reid agenda in the US Senate, including casting the deciding vote for Obamacare and voting for the stimulus. McCaskill is the lead recipient of pro-choice advocacy group, Emily's List.
