If Sarah Palin does this I might have to follow suit.
I am a big Cruz fan too though. The thought of a Trump/Cruz ticket is very exciting to me.
Check it out:
Donald Trump earlier this week touted on Twitter that he’d be making a “big announcement” on Tuesday in Ames, Iowa. A Facebook post from Trump on Sunday indicated he would have “a very special guest in attendance.”
He teased it a bit more during a rally in New Hampshire on Monday, making it clear the announcement would be an endorsement. Ahead of the event, speculation focused on the possibility that Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and former Alaska governor, would be throwing her support behind Trump.
Adding to the rumor mill was a report from The Washington Post that a charter flight traveling from Anchorage had landed in Des Moines on Monday night.
A Ted Cruz adviser even pre-emptively sought to dismiss the possible endorsement as damaging to Palin’s brand.
“I think it’d be a blow to Sarah Palin, because Sarah Palin has been a champion for the conservative cause, and if she was going to endorse Donald Trump, sadly, she would be endorsing someone who’s held progressive views all their life on the sanctity of life, on marriage, on partial-birth abortion,” Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler said on CNN’s New Day.
That didn’t sit well with a certain member of the Palin family. Daughter Bristol Palin made clear on Tuesday what she hopes her mom does in a blog post titled “Is THIS Why People Don’t like Cruz?” She wrote that she liked Cruz and believed all of the candidates were better choices than Hillary Clinton. However, she added, “after hearing what Cruz is now saying about my mom, in a negative knee-jerk reaction, makes me hope my mom does endorse Trump.” She also noted that her mom supported Cruz in the past and blasted him for “turning against my mom.”
She added: “You’ve also said, ‘She can pick winners!’ I hope you’re right, and that she endorses Donald Trump today for President.”
