CD8: Invoking the Power of Sarah Palin

Posted By on Tue, Aug 17, 2010 at 6:43 PM

Well, it wouldn't be a Republican primary if Sarah Palin didn't somehow get involved.

Robert Mayer, the former Tucson Tea Party activist who is now backing Jonathan Paton in the Congressional District 8 race against Jesse Kelly, has posted two videos in which Kelly busts on St. Sarah for endorsing too many moderates.

Kelly responds via email: "Taping me will still not distract voters from Paton's record of voting for big-spending budgets and against tort reform."

Espresso Pundit wonders if it's enough to bring Sarah to CD8 in support of Paton. Even the right Facebook post could be the game changer the former state lawmaker needs in a tight race that will decide the Republican nominee to face Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. It would surely get the TV stations to pay attention to the race on the final weekend.
