Palin: I’d Vote for Newt (in S.C., at Least)

On Fox News tonight, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin told Sean Hannity that she would vote for Newt Gingrich in the South Carolina primary to keep the vetting process in motion:

If I were a South Carolinian though, and each one of these primaries and caucuses are different, Sean, I want to see this thing continue because iron sharpens iron. Steel sharpens steel.  These guys are getting better in their debates.  They are getting more concise.  They are getting more grounded in what their beliefs are and articulating what their ideas are for getting America back on the right track and getting Americans working again.  If I had to vote in South Carolina order to keep this thing going, I would vote for Newt and I would want it to continue. More debates, more vetting of candidates.

During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
