Just a day after Sarah Palin endorsed Indiana State Treasurer, and Tea Party favorite, Richard Mourdock for the United States Senate against the entrenched Republican Establishment™ candidate Richard Lugar, comes more bad news for “Obama’s favorite Republican.” A group that is noted for backing incumbents has said no mas.
From The Hill:
The American Action Network, a super-PAC that backs establishment Republicans, has pulled out of Indiana’s Senate race, the latest bad omen for Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.).
“We’ve decided we’re going to let this race play out,” AAN spokesman Dan Conston told The Hill Friday evening.
The group had committed to spending nearly $600,000 on television attacking Lugar’s Tea Party opponent, Indiana state Treasurer Richard Mourdock (R), and has been on the air in Indianapolis for two weeks. But they have pulled their online advertising and will end their TV buy on Tuesday, a week ahead of the May 8 primary.
Sarah Palin’s stellar record of picking winners in 2010 no doubt made the Establishment™ Super PAC think twice about spending any more money on what will most certainly be a loosing effort.
We look forward to seeing the Governor flex her muscles again this campaign season, as she backs principled Conservative leaders in opposition to the Washington elite who have been failing the American people for far too long.
Make sure you check out Richard Mourdock’s website and give him all of the support you can. What’s good for Indiana is what’s good for America.
