Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has thrown her support behind U.S. Rep. Mary Fallin for Oklahoma governor.
Palin made the announcement this evening on her Facebook page, in post that details the hard work of the mama grizzlies fishing in the river. Palin called Fallin a “liberty-loving mama grizzly.”
Mary Fallin is another strong, smart conservative who I am proud to support. Mary is running for Governor of Oklahoma, and the Sooner State is fortunate to have her offer to serve in this new capacity. Mary’s another fiscal conservative with policy experience, political backbone, and real world knowledge that will serve the entire state well as she proves her mettle as Oklahoma’s next CEO. Her personal, professional, and political background gives her a healthy perspective on the challenges facing so many of our families and businesses. …
Fallin, who is seeking the Republican nomination for governor, announced the backing on her Twitter page. Wonder if Palin will make a stop in Oklahoma to campaign for Fallin? Palin for Fallin, it has a nice rhyming ring to it.
Fallin has been active with the Tea Party group, appearing at rallies and other events in the past year. Seems like the Republican race for the gubernatorial nomination will likely come down to name recognition and who can out conservative the other.
Several informal polls of would-be voters show Fallin in the lead of Sen. Randy Brogdon, another Republican seeking the nomination. Brogdon has been preaching views similar to the Tea Party values before the tea was even brewed.
