The 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate made it clear that she accepts Romney as the party's banner carrier and added that talks have taken place between "some of his people and some of my people" about a possible speaking role for her at the RNC convention in Tampa next month. Like Newt Gingrich, however, she stressed that she will be comfortable whether she speaks at the GOP's big party or not. In the meantime, she will continue to concentrate on the down-ticket races, she said.
Regarding the Ted Cruz victory in Texas Tuesday, the former Alaska governor noted that the candidate with the most money and high-paid professional consultants doesn't always win. Her advice to Mitt Romney's team? Be aware that they will not only have to fight against Obama's $1 Billion campaign war chest and thuggery inspired by union bosses, but also against President Obama's "lapdogs in the media."
Gov. Palin commented that the very idea that Elizabeth Warren, "with her Marxist views," will deliver the DNC convention's keynote address "cracks me up." She also had a few choice words for three-term Senator Bob Bennett (R-UT), who lost his reelection bid at the GOP nominating convention in Salt Lake City, calling him "a wee bit out of touch" with the Tea Party movement.
Sarah Palin, who was in Phoenix, Arizona, mentioned that she was headed to Missouri. It appears a campaign appearance with U.S. Senate candidate Sarah Steelman is in the works for Mama Grizzly.
