I’ve been around the political block a time or two and have enjoyed my part in recalling former Calif. Gov. Gray Davis and stopping the government from poisoning us with MTBE additives in our gasoline.
But one of the strangest political oddities I’ve witnessed on the left coast was when Sarah Palin endorsed Carly Fiorina over conservative Chuck DeVore.
Palin fans, who gave her a pass when she endorsed her former running-mate Sen. John McCain, went ballistic when she gave Fiorina the nod.
The story has been covered, but the underlying turmoil caused by Palin’s endorsement is still roiling. It has HELPED DeVore as Palin’s followers tossed her under the bus to stand with DeVore. DeVore had one of his top fund-raising days ever after the endorsement. His Facebook Fan numbers have skyrocketed.
He’s a Tea Party favorite. More importantly, he’s a conservative whose star is rising in the S.F. Bay Area – of all places!! This says he CAN win one for the conservative movement.
In fact, conservative voters are deserting Carly Fiorina in droves - and there is data to prove it today.
So, who is the man behind the rocky breakup of Palin and her fans? DeVore would be the clear frontrunner if people knew the real story.
That’s why I’m blogging about this. He IS a story. He IS worthy of your time. And he IS a conservative who can beat Barbara Boxer. He is NOT an establishment, country club Republican, which is why insiders have turned their noses at him and why we should NOT.
Spread the word to all your Facebook friends. Call talk show hosts and let them know you support DeVore. Write letters to the editor. Blog. Send smoke signals. Just get the word out.
Thanks, Mel Morgan
