RINOs keep hoping Donald Trump and his supporters will disappear.
The Never-Trumpers and Republicans in Name Only can’t stand that he’s still the leader of the Republican Party.
And Donald Trump can’t wipe the grin off his face after he dealt a huge blow to RINOs with a surprise endorsement.
All hell broke out when Donald Trump made a surprise endorsement in the special election for the Alaska Congressional seat that recently opened up.
The special election for the state’s lone House seat is shaking up the political world after speculation ran rampant that former Alaska Governor and Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin would go for the seat.
Palin was one of Donald Trump’s earliest GOP supporters.
Now he’s returning the favor as Palin throws her hat in the ring for Alaska’s sole US House seat.
“Sarah shocked many when she endorsed me very early in 2016, and we won big. Now, it’s my turn!” Trump said. “Sarah has been a champion for Alaska values, Alaska energy, Alaska jobs, and the great people of Alaska. She was one of the most popular Governors because she stood up to corruption in both State Government and the Fake News Media.”
Even though he’s out of office, Donald Trump is still leading the Republican party—and his endorsements can be game changers in a race—especially a primary election.
He certainly didn’t hold anything back when recommending Sarah Palin.
“Sarah Palin is tough and smart and will never back down, and I am proud to give her my Complete and Total Endorsement, and encourage all Republicans to unite behind this wonderful person and her campaign to put America First!” Trump said.
After years of speculation about whether she would ever get back in politics, Sarah Palin is suddenly back in the game.
The seat opened up unexpectedly after Republican Don Young passed away.
The 88-year-old Republican was the longest serving member of Congress representing his state for 49 years.
Most people watching politics in The Last Frontier State closely thought Palin would take on RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski.
Back when Murkowski voted against confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Palin told her, “I can see 2022 from my house.”
But the chance to fill Representative Young’s shoes was too tempting to pass up.
Now, thanks to Trump’s ringing endorsement, her campaign is off to a strong start.
Since Alaska’s House seat has opened up for the first time since 1973, more than 50 candidates have thrown their hats in the ring.
Alaska employs an unusual system to narrow the field for a special election.
It starts with an all-party primary with the top four candidates going on to compete in the general election.
Several prominent Republicans already joined the race, but in a state where Donald Trump won by double digits both times he ran for president, his endorsement is a coup for Sarah Palin.
Between the endorsement from Trump and her conservative outsider reputation, she’s now the favorite to win the seat.
Establishment insiders and Never-Trumpers are all hoping Donald Trump will fade away, but if Sarah Palin wins a seat in Congress, he’ll have another strong supporter to help him finish draining the swamp.
