What's in an endorsement? Apparently a great deal when you're the underdog candidate and Sarah Palin gives you the nod. Last week, Deb Fischer, candidate for U.S. Senate in Nebraska, released a statement that the Palin's had endorsed her candidacy. Mama (and Papa) Grizzlies went to work by volunteering either in person, making donations, and/or setting social media "on fire". The announcement by the Fischer campaign was followed up by Palin's own message via Facebook note here. Sarah Palin's endorsement had a similar effect on Richard Mourdock's U.S. Senatorial campaign in Indiana last week.
With 100% of the precincts in, here is the final tally for the Nebraska primary for U.S. Senate.
Posted to Sarah Palin's Facebook page overnight:
As recently as a week ago, Deb Fischer was dismissed by the establishment. Why? Because she is not part of the good old boys’ permanent political class. The message from the people of Nebraska is simple and powerful: America is looking for real change in Washington, and commonsense conservatives like Deb Fischer represent that change. I applaud Moms like Deb Fischer who are bold enough to step up and run on a conservative platform to restore America and protect our children’s future. Congratulations to the people of Nebraska. As the Huskers’ fight song goes: “The eyes of the land, upon every hand, are looking at you. Fight on for victory!”
