UPDATE: Palin 'proud' to endorse PaulSubmitted by radiofriendly on Mon, 02/01/2010 - 14:58
Updated 2/1 5:30 PM: Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Monday that she is “proud” to back Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul, clearing up any doubts raised about the endorsement by Paul’s opponents.
“I’m proud to support great grassroots candidates like Dr. Paul,” Palin said in a statement to POLITICO. “While there are issues we disagree on, he and I are both in agreement that it’s time to shake up the status quo in Washington and stand up for common sense ideas.”
David Adams, Rand Paul's campaign manager has confirmed this morning that SarahPAC has sent them financial support and authorized the release of that information as an endorsement of Rand Paul for the GOP candidate to replace retiring baseball hall of fame pitcher and two term incumbent Jim Bunning.
"This is a huge boost to the Paul campaign and will open the way for more endorsements to follow", said one local GOP insider.
Since the announcement, Sen. Dan Seum (R-Louisville) just called to announce his support. “I’m withdrawing my previous endorsement for Trey Grayson,” Sen. Seum said. “I support Rand Paul.”
