In a post on her Facebook page today, Sarah Palin said she will refuse to support any politician who backs the gun control bill.
Please see the link below for why the latest gun control bill should be filibustered and defeated. I can not and will not support politicians who support any more limits on our Second Amendment rights.
The link takes readers to a two-page summary detailing her opposition to the bill.
The reference to “politician” suggests that she will withhold support not just from Senators who are about to vote on the gun control bill, but from anyone – whether they are a member of the Senate or House, a state politician, or future presidential candidate – who supports further gun control efforts.
For a politician, having Palin stump for you is not quite the boon it once was, as her brand has faded somewhat.
Nevertheless, with some Republicans senators and House members sure to face primary challenges, having Palin enter the fray on behalf of their opponent should still send a few chills down their spines. Her support remains the clearest possible signal that you have the blessing of the Tea Party, and her opposition, that you do not.
