The magic of Palin Power seems to be alive and well… although Palin endorsed Steve Lonegan was defeated by millionaire former insurance executive, Tom MacArthur, for the South Jersey 3rd Congressional District.

Yes! Thank you, Iowa! To all the tireless Ernst campaign workers who are “in this for a reason, not just a season,” please know your great efforts are sincerely appreciated. And to the wise Iowa voters willing to share your home state patriot with the rest of the country – thank you for making the positive difference in our nation’s direction! America needs Joni; America needs you to keep supporting her bid for public service.
Congratulations, Joni Ernst! This hardworking mama grizzly will be a great representative for the GOP in this fall’s general election, so it’s time for all to come together to send this proud farmer, combat vet, constitutional conservative to Washington to join the good guys in the Senate who fight for us.
That snorting and squealing you hear tonight (http://youtu.be/p9Y24MFOfFU)? That would be D.C.’s big spenders making their noise in anticipation of a Joni Ernst victory as Iowa leads that #Roaring2November #Together!

And now McDaniel will need everyone’s support for the runoff!
See #MSSEN Updates: Chris McDaniel has run a great race, and tonight’s unbelievably tight numbers will likely send Chris into a run-off that will help determine our nation’s future – so thank you, Mississippi! The Magnolia State will have more time to consider the significant issues facing us and to really reflect on why it is imperative our republic be defended with conservative leadership. The U.S. Senate needs this constitutional conservative!
Chris McDaniel is a proven, intelligent, conscientious, very bold fighter who brings new energy and perspective to economic and security challenges. Chris has the will and ability to advance positive reform in Washington. He’s the reinforcement we’ve promised real leaders including Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz.
It was with gratefulness I got to meet many Jones County voters last week who came out so strong for Chris tonight. Thank you, McDaniel supporters, staff, and family, for your successful efforts today! Please stay engaged with laser-like focus on Chris’ positive message and agenda that propels Mississippi and helps save America.
Tonight is a victory for grassroots conservatives who came together and shocked the political world. Together, mighty Mississippians can send this son of Mississippi to fight for all of us.
