After Joe Miller said in a debate on Thursday night that Sarah Palin is the figure in Alaska that most inspires him, Palin returned the favor by endorsing Miller for U.S. Senate.
“We said we’d send the good guys in Washington their reinforcements, so, Alaska, here we go! Vote for Joe Miller on Tuesday and shake off the liberal stronghold so we can get on the right track,” Palin said in a statement sent not to the local media, but to Fox News in New York on a Friday late afternoon, which is traditionally time to release news when you don’t want it to be news.
In 2010, Palin declined to work hard for Miller’s campaign after he won the 2010 primary. Part of the problem then was that when asked in an interview, Miller declined to say that Palin was qualified to be President of United States.
This is from a September 2010 email Todd Palin sent to a campaign lawyer and the treasure of Palin’s PAC.
Hold off on any letter for Joe, Sarah put her ass on the line for Joe and yet he can’t answer a simple question ‘is Sarah Palin Qualified to be President. I DON’T KNOW IF SHE IS.’ Joe, please explain how this endorsement stuff works, is it to be completely one sided
Sarah spent all morning wocrking on a Face book post for Joe, she won’t use it, not now.
Put yourself in her shoe’s Joe for one day.
Sarah and Todd both remained relatively silent through the rest of the election.
In addition to Miller talking up Palin’s inspirational qualities, Miller was also on the Dan Fagan/Glen Biegel show recently, praising Palin’s signature piece of legislation—ACES—though Miller has said in recent forums that he would vote against repealing the legislation that was passed in 2013 that replaced ACES.
