Palin aims to shake up GOP establishment
Sarah Palin is scheduled to launch her autobiography "Going Rogue" in a rare appearance on Oprah on November 17th. In it she is said to directly take on the GOP establishment.
She has soldified this position now by endorsing a third party candidate, Doug Hoffman, in New Yorks 23rd district.
In her facebook page she has made the following statement:
The people of the 23rd Congressional District of New York are ready to shake things up, and Doug Hoffman is coming on strong as Election Day approaches! He needs our help now...By:Sarah Palin
WASHINGTON -- Early next month, Sarah Palin will publish ‘Going Rogue,' an autobiography aimed at solidifying her status as a Republican Party renegade.
But the former Alaska governor isn't waiting until the book's Nov. 17 release - or her promotional interview with Oprah Winfrey - to start shaking up the GOP establishment.
U.S. Republicans were buzzing Friday after Ms. Palin, in a direct challenge to the national party's authority, publicly endorsed a third-party conservative candidate in a much-watched special congressional election in upstate New York.
Writing on her Facebook page, Ms. Palin announced she was backing Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman in the Nov. 3 election to fill a vacant seat in New York's 23rd congressional district.
