Ghost Son Endorses McCollum, While Sarah Palin Makes a Florida Endorsement of Her Own
Short of hiring a medium to contact the ghost of Ronald Reagan for an endorsement, the best thing Republicans can get in the ways of a Reagan endorsement is getting the Gipper's adopted son to back a candidate while raising his father's specter another way. Lucky Bill McCollum.
Meanwhile, "mama grizzly" Sarah Palin has finally decided to make an endorsement in one of Florida's races. Who's the lucky endorsee? Marco Rubio? Rick Scott? Nope, some lady you've never heard of who's running for Attorney General.
First here's McCollum's new ad showcasing the support of Michael Reagan, the adopted son of Ronald Reagan and a former talk radio host. Of course, from the commercial you'd be excused if you'd think somehow Ronal Reagan himself was making the endorsement:
Meanwhile, Sarah Palin, some lady from Alaska, has decided to let Floridians know how to vote. To celebrate the 90th anniversary of the 19th amendment (which gave ladies the right to vote, most of whom end up voting for Democrats) Palin took to her Facebook to make endorsements of a swath of female Republican candidates, including Pam Bondi. Here's what Palin, or whoever she pays to write her Facebook notes, had to say:
Pam Bondi and Brenna Findley are running for Attorney General in their states -- Pam in Florida, and Brenna in Iowa. These are both bold, sharp, selfless women who will respect our Constitution, defend their states, protect our rights, and push back against any overreach of the federal government. We desperately need these conservative leaders who won't kowtow to the Obama administration's big government overreach into our states, small businesses, families, and individual lives.
Of course Bondi is running in a close primary against Lt. Gov Jeff Kottkamp and Holly Benson (who is also a woman, but apparently not woman enough for Palin).
