Steelman told Breitbart News that Palin “is one of the strongest conservative leaders in the country who remains steadfast battling for what is right despite the personal attacks from the liberal left" and someone who “isn't afraid to take on the status quo” as she fights to “return the power of government to the people where it belongs.”Gov. Palin endorsed Steelman July 17. The former Missouri state treasurer is in a close primary battle with businessman John Brunner. Both candidates are running well ahead of U.S. Rep. Todd Aiken.
“I respect and admire her,” Steelman said, noting she was also “honored and excited that Governor Palin has endorsed me for U.S. Senate.”
“[Palin] believes we need people with a strong backbone willing to fight for what is right,” Steelman said. “She knows I will cut government spending, balance the budget and get government out of the way."
Steelman is hoping ads such as this will swing those undecided voters over to her, much in the same way Palin’s endorsement sealed the deal for Senate candidates in Indiana (Richard Mourdock) and Nebraska (Deb Fischer) and boosted the chances of Texas’s Ted Cruz, who is leading his race against David Dewhurst going into Texas’s Tuesday runoff.
