Kudos to Sean Duffy.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Wednesday endorsed the Republican challenger to House Appropriations Committee Chairman Dave Obey, calling the Wisconsin Democrat a “liberal Goliath” with “the dubious distinction of being the author of the stimulus bill.”
Palin described Ashland County District Attorney Sean Duffy, who’s running an uphill campaign against Obey, as a “northern Wisconsin patriot” and urged readers on her Facebook page to donate to Duffy’s campaign.
“If you’re frustrated about the waste in the stimulus bill, please support a solid fiscal conservative who will work to repeal it,” Palin said.
A spokeswoman for Palin clarified that the governor was referring to legislative efforts to rescind unobligated stimulus funds. About a third of the $787 billion spending bill has already been disbursed.
Duffy’s campaign welcomed Palin’s support with open arms.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have Gov. Palin’s endorsement,” campaign manager Chris DeRose told POLITICO. “Coming on the anniversary of Chairman Obey’s $787 billion failed stimulus bill is even sweeter.” (Source: Politco)
Here’s the endorsement on Palin’s Facebook Notes page.
But there is hope! And this hope lies in draining the swamp in D.C. and sending Commonsense Conservatives to Washington who understand the need for fiscal restraint. Those who are willing to rein in spending, respect Constitutional limits, and repeal the stimulus should get our support, and those who have been part of the problem should be replaced.
In this election year, we’ll see many daring Davids take on entrenched Goliaths. Just one of these many brave souls is a northern Wisconsin patriot named Sean Duffy. He’s running in Wisconsin’s 7th congressional district against a liberal Goliath who’s been in Congress over 40 years now and has the dubious distinction of being the author of the stimulus bill. To commemorate the anniversary of the signing of the stimulus, Sean Duffy is holding a fundraising “money bomb” for his campaign so he can replace the career politician who drafted this government-bloating behemoth.
If you’re frustrated about the waste in the stimulus bill, please support a solid fiscal conservative who will work to repeal it. Please visit Sean Duffy’s website and help him help us correct the mistakes of this past year.
On this first anniversary of the stimulus, let’s send a message to the big-spenders in Washington by helping Sean Duffy unseat the author of the stimulus. Let’s put government back on our side and get to work revitalizing America!
The endorsement by Sarah Palin helped Duffy’s fundraising. According to his Facebook page as of this morning over $27,000 had been raised.
