Sarah Palin’s First 2014 Endorsement Goes To Texas Candidate
Palin has a great track record with her endorsements.
Check it out:
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed fierce Texas conservative Katrina Pierson in her underdog bid to primary incumbent Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) in Texas’s 32nd congressional district. Palin called Pierson a “feisty fighter” who is “an emerging leader and important voice for the future of the grassroots conservative movement.”
“Her life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty,” Palin said. “A feisty fighter for freedom, Katrina is taking on a powerful incumbent who has so lost touch with the people of his district that he’s not even bothering to spend much time in Texas anymore.” Indeed, Pierson is a single mother who overcame tremendous adversity and bettered her life. She worked her way from poverty into becoming a healthcare administrator at a Level 1 trauma hospital in downtown Dallas.
Palin, whose endorsement former South Carolina Senator and Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint said had the most impact in GOP primaries, also mentioned that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) called Pierson “an utterly fearless principled conservative.” Pierson traveled across the state for Cruz to get him elected, even when Cruz was at 2% in the polls in his GOP Texas Senate primary in 2012. At least year’s CPAC, Cruz also said he would not be in the U.S. Senate were it not for Palin.
