Mitt Romney Snags Coveted Lisa Murkowski Endorsement
With Mitt Romney plummeting in the polls, his campaign was under intense pressure to pad his grass roots street cred by adding to an already impressive string of endorsements from such high profile conservative stalwarts as David Brooks, Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, Meghan McCain, Alec Baldwin, and Kathleen Parker. Mission accomplished. This afternoon, with all the appropriate fanfare befitting such a momentous announcement, the Romney campaign disclosed that Lisa Murkowski, who ran against the Republican candidate for Senate in Alaska in 2010, is now officially a full-fledged Mitt-head:
Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney announced Friday that he has earned the endorsement of Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, considered by many conservatives to be a RINO.
Loyal Palinistas know all about the bad blood between Sarah and Princess Lisa. There aren’t too many people on the planet whose endorsement would be more toxic to them.
But then again, loyal Palinistas weren’t likely to vote for Mitt anyway.
