Disappointment: Sarah Palin endorses entrenched incumbent GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch


Posted on: March 13, 2017

In an interview with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News tonight, Sarah Palin offered an endorsement to Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) in his re-election bid.

Hatch, a six-term senator with a big-government voting record and nearly four decades of costly progressive partnerships with the likes of Ted Kennedy and his old pal Arlen Specter, has been closely watched in this election cycle given that he is currently fighting his first contested primary against state legislator, acclaimed pension reformer, and former Bain businessman Dan Liljenquist.

Is this a nail in the coffin of Sarah Palin’s conservative credibility or just another endorsement for conservatives to fight about and then forget tomorrow?

Twitter reaction:

And the internet just exploded… RT @keder: Oh this ought to be fun –> Sarah Palin endorses Orrin Hatch.

LOL… Palin endorses Hatch! What a crazy maverick she is endorsing the incumbent!

— Brian Lehman (@BrainLemon) May 23, 2012

Oh, THIS is funny! Palin endorsed Hatch? Hahahaha. Everybody grab your popcorn and settle in to watch. This should be entertaining.

— C. Whalen Stephens (@CorieWhalen) May 23, 2012

Palin can say what she wants, Hatch still sucks. This is why you put your faith in principles and not people.

Sarah Palin's endorsement of long-in-tooth RINO Orrin Hatch severely damages her credibility w #teaparty constitutional conservatives #tcot

Seriously, Orrin Hatch? Sorry @SarahPalinUSA I'm going to have to disagree with you. Teddy K's designated driver needs to be retired

@SarahPalinUSA You endorse Hatch? Why? We get the McCain endrsmnt…do we like his support of SB510? LOST Treaty? NDAA? Hell No, Now Hatch?

Palin endorsing Orrin Hatch. Good lord. He's only had 36 years in the senate to balance the budget.

@keder what happens when you put lipstick on a RINO? #Palin #Hatch

More than any other political figure, I TRUST Sarah Palin. Very, very few disagreements with her judgement. Can live with her Hatch endorse.

— Steve Bayrd (@SteveBayrd) May 23, 2012

OMG! Now I'm rooting for Hatch because I can't think for myself! Palin has made up my mind! #fail

What’s most puzzling, of course, is that Palin has endorsed several other anti-establishment Tea Party favorites in GOP Senate primaries across the country, including Richard Mourdock in Indiana, Ted Cruz in Texas, and Deb Fischer in Nebraska.

It’s even more eyebrow-raising given that Palin made the endorsement on Greta Van Susteren’s show. Van Susteren’s husband has been a significant donor to Hatch over the years.

Yeah. It’s a head-scratcher. But instead of worrying about Palin, grass-roots conservatives looking to boot another old entrenched incumbent will need to redouble their efforts.

Go here for Liljenquist’s campaign website and donation page.
