From CNN's Political Ticker, Sarah Palin's father Chuck Heath has recorded a radio ad for Danny Tarkanian:
Sarah Palin's dad is again weighing in on the Nevada Senate race – this time by starring in a new radio ad on behalf of Republican primary candidate Danny Tarkanian.CNN producer Alexander Mooney says that Nevada GOP chairwoman Sue Lowden is leading Tarkanian in a recent Mason-Dixon poll by nearly 20 points.
Palin's father Chuck Heath has long supported Tarkanian, one of the many Republicans hoping to unseat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid this November.
"You supported my daughter Sarah Palin, now please join me in supporting another strong conservative – Danny Tarkanian," Heath says in the state-wide ad, according to a script provided by the campaign. "Danny Tarkanian is strongly pro-life, and he will protect our Second Amendment rights. He will fight to cut taxes, slash spending, and end budget-busting pork barrel politics."
The retired science teacher who lives in Alaska made five stops across Nevada last October with Tarkanian, the son of legendary college basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian.
Gov. Palin has not weighed in on the Nevada primary, leaving it to her father and brother to endorse and campaign for Tarkanian. Should Tarkanian lose to his primary opponent, then Palin can endorse Lowden in the general election against Harry Reid without the Democrats making hay out of any prior Palin endorsement in the primary. The 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate will be in Reid's hometown of Searchlight, Nevada for the kickoff of a major Tea Party Express tour later this month.
