Posting on Facebook Thursday, Gov. Palin talked about her week's activities and asked her followers to support 17 conservative candidates in four states:
Traveling the Country Where We See a New Generation of Leaders EmergingWe're pleased to see the governor give Bill Flores a shout out. TX-17, where we reside, is carved out of a long corridor of central Texas which extends from the Edwards Plateau all the way down to the Brazos River Valley and includes the cities of Cleburne, Waco, Bryan and College Station. Although the 17th is a overwhelmingly Republican district, it has been represented by only Democrats since its creation in 1919.
Had a great visit with Newsmax and the great folks in the Sunshine State yesterday! I spoke to Michael Reagan about his father’s grand legacy and to Dick Morris about not accepting what President Obama wants America to believe is some kind of “new normal” of economic woe. I spoke to concerned Floridians about the energy in the Tea Party movement, and explained that I wrote a lot about it in my book, “America by Heart”; and I had the privilege of being interviewed on Sean Hannity’s show regarding voter turnout favoring conservatives this year.
Florida is fortunate to have great candidates willing to run and serve for all the right reasons. The repeal of the mother-of-all-unfunded mandates, Obamacare, is foremost on the minds of so many concerned Floridians, along with job, jobs, jobs. Thankfully they have candidates bold enough to promise to shake things up, put “We the People” first, and support free market and results-oriented solutions to all these challenges. Please support these great Sunshine State candidates:
Rick Scott for Governor
Pam Bondi for Attorney General
Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate
Steve Southerland (FL-2)
Allen West (FL-22)
Sandy Adams (FL-24)
Today I’m in beautiful, historic, special Alabama! I speak at Faulkner University and am shouting out a big Alabama holler for some great candidates:
Beth Chapman for Secretary of State
Martha Roby (AL-2)
Tonight I’ll be calling into an event for two great candidates in Hawaii:
John Willoughby (HI-2)
Scott Henderson (State House District 7)
The Aloha State is ripe for positive, patriotic change under the leadership of these good Americans with servant’s hearts in our 50th state.
Tomorrow it’s back to Texas for a Woman of Joy conference and talking to Texans about some of their great candidates:
Rick Perry for Governor
Greg Abbott for Attorney General
Bill Flores (TX-17)
Francisco "Quico" Canseco (TX-23)
Dr. Donna Campbell (TX-25)
Blake Farenthold (TX-27)
Stephen Broden (TX-30)
Onward and upward. Be glad you can see November from your house! Real change is just around the corner, America!
- Sarah Palin
Chet Edwards, the incumbent, has held the seat since 2005. Edwards is one of the blue dog Dems who is fighting for his political life, and he's running harder against Speaker Pelosi and President Obama than some Republicans are! But no matter how hard Chet runs from his own party, he can't hide his votes in favor of both the stimulus and financial bailout bills. They are two strikes against him. Nevertheless, he can't be underestimated. At the end of June, Chet was sitting on a $2.1 million campaign chest, while Flores had only raised $415,000. So please follow Gov. Palin's lead and support Bill Flores!
