Sarah Palin Wants Newt to Win in South Carolina
Palin brought a good point. Prolong the debates because the vetting process is not over. In other words, Romney better get off his butt and fight for it.
(Politico) Sarah Palin's not quite endorsing Newt Gingrich for president, but if she were a South Carolina voter, he's the one she'd cast her ballot for this weekend.
The idea, Palin explained on Fox News, would be to keep the primary season going. Via Juana Summers, here's the case Palin made:
"I can tell you what I would do if I were a South Carolinian…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."
