Palin immediately congratulated Dave Brat on Tuesday night on his victory via Facebook:
Congratulations to Dave Brat in Virginia on such an encouraging victory tonight! You shocked the political world and reminded D.C. that power lies with We the People and not any conventional party establishment. Dave Brat was massively outspent (more than 10 to 1) and laughed off by most, but he won the trust of voters the old fashioned way – one by one. Tonight’s victory showed the power of the local grassroots – the ones with boots on the ground who put up the campaign signs and go door to door to provide needed support for great candidates. Appreciation also goes to those with powerful microphones like Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Ann Coulter and others who recognized Dave’s strengths and had the guts to provide him a megaphone to reach concerned citizens.
Grassroots commonsense conservatives can use this momentum to push good candidates like Chris McDaniel, TW Shannon, and Rob Maness to victory for America. These candidates, as well as Dave Brat, are also being massively outspent by establishment candidates and they need our help and energy.
Thank you, Virginia! On to November!
– Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin was on her game in her interview with Sean Hannity tonight, not missing a beat. She pointed out that the primary election last night serves as an example that the people, the Republican party are ready for change. “The status quo has got to go”, Palin said.
On the Brat victory: People are over-thinking this and those who are absolutely shocked that this could ever happen must not have their thumb on the pulse on what many Americans are thinking and that is the status quo has got to go. Those who have been kind of part of the problem seeing these failed policies and this agenda that is driving America’s economy into the ditch well there’s an opportunity at the ballot box to make a change. Dave Brat ran a great campaign. It was simple. He was in touch with the people. He talked a lot about free enterprise and free markets, jut about just the foundational principles about what makes an Economy invigorated and vibrant. Dave spoke to the people about that and those who are shocked are really underestimating the wisdom of the people.
Hannity: Politicians in DC seem timid, weak and are not articulating a vision. Washington Republicans are failing us. Palin: It’s a whole ball of wax throw in there amnesty. The people realize that amnesty will disseminate main street in flooding of foreign citizens into the country by competing for American jobs creating more unemployment.
Conservative governors and mayors who serve at the most responsible level of government are closest to the people, not those in a bubble. These governors who are held to account because they answer to the people they are serving understand it doesn’t have to be a complicated agenda. It should be one that wouldn’t try to pull the wool over any citizens’ eyes. You just have to be honest with the people. They should say what the debt and state of the union is and be honest with the people. It’s also the beauty of those who have served in local office to understand how it works.
President Obama has absolutely nothing on his resume that bodes well for he being in touch with the people.
Sean plays tape Hillary in tape saying these five guys (the five Taliban released) are not a threat to the United States.
Palin: It’s probably the one thing that Obama has said that’s been accurately lately. He couldn’t deny that of course there’s a possibility of their being a threat. It’s in their genes, it’s in their DNA these radical Muslims these terrorists who would want to destroy America and our allies. They’re out to do harm to America. The comments there though not as bad as those from the State Department calling these five animals gentlemen -WHAT THE HECK is WRONG with these people in D.C. – in this bubble?!!
Hillary on tape: The Obama campaign suspected that our nomination was a blatant attempt to scuttle their hope of welcoming the women who had vigorously supported me. They immediately issued a dismissive statement and reached out to me in the hopes I would follow suit but I wouldn’t… I wasn’t not going to attack Palin just for being a woman while appealing for support from other women. It didn’t make political sense and it didn’t feel right so I said no. There would plenty of time for criticism. The campaign reversed itself and congratulated Governor Palin.
Palin: Team Obama has such disrespect for women. It’s kind of cool to see proof there that they are the ones who took the first shot in the so called war on women. And from there the Obama administration’s agenda to try to make women feel like they’re not worthy or capable of taking care of themselves. That’s the complete opposite of the planks of the Republican platform that believes in competition regardless of gender, hard work and reward for your work ethic.
And here was the tweet sent by Sarah earlier yesterday: https://twitter.com/SarahPalinUSA/status/476037527820713984 “There is an opportunity at the ballot box,” said Palin
