**Update: The Gardner and Tipton campaigns respond to BATTLE ‘10 about receiving the endorsement of Palin’s SarahPAC. Gardner expressed gratitude saying, “I’m pleased to get the endorsement since the McCain/Palin ticket won the district in 2008.” Tipton’s told BATTLE ‘10, “I am honored to have Governor Palin’s endorsement of my candidacy. She’s a great inspiration to a lot of common sense conservatives in Colorado’s Third Congressional District. She’ll be a tremendous asset to this grassroots effort to send a small businessman to Washington.”
Sarah Palin has identified 20 House seats occupied by incumbent Democrats who voted for the Obama administration’s health care bill, and now SarahPAC has jumped in behind Scott Tipton (CO-3) and Cory Gardner (CO-4) with TakeBackthe20.com:
20 House Democrats from districts we carried in 2008 voted for the health care bill
It’s been six months since President Obama signed his health care bill into law. Despite overwhelming public dislike of Obamacare, we were told that Washington knows best and there was nothing to worry about. Nancy Pelosi said Congress had to pass the bill so that Americans could “find out what is in it.” We found out that it’s even worse than we feared.
Join me in standing against those who stood with Obama and Pelosi in voting for this disastrous bill. The Democrats from 20 districts we carried in 2008 voted for Obamacare. Now we can vote against them.
Let’s replace them with good conservatives who will vote to repeal and replace Obamacare with patient-centered, results-driven, free market reform that provides solutions to people of all income levels without bankrupting our country.
Let’s reclaim the power of the people from those who disregarded the will of the people.
Don’t get demoralized, get organized. It’s time to take a stand.
Gardner faces freshman Rep. Betsy Markey, who has already put the endorsement to use in a fundraising email:
I know you saw the news about Karl Rove supporting my opponent with an event here in CO, but there’s been even BIGGER breaking news.
Sarah Palin just endorsed my opponent.
My $75k goal is now more important than ever. We HAVE to raise it before the end of my last quarterly fundraising deadline of September 30th.
Please help as soon as you can, Michael, by donating $15 here.
