Is Palin gearing-up for a Third Party?

Is former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin really gearing-up for a Third Party? CNN Political Producer Peter Hamby writes on, Sarah Palin is making some robo-calls in Virginia right before Tuesday’s election. The funny thing is that Palin did not mention any candidate.

According to the CNN report the recording says, “Virginia, hello, this is Sarah Palin calling to urge you to go to the polls Tuesday and vote for Sarah’s principles. The eyes of America will be on Virginia and make no mistake about it, every vote counts. So don’t take anything for granted, vote your values on Tuesday, and urge your friends and family to vote, too.” The recording does not mention Bob McDonnell the Republican gubernatorial candidate.

The report says, “the phone blitz was paid for by the Virginia Faith and Freedom Coalition, the state branch of a national conservative group founded by former Christian Coalition director Ralph Reed.” In fact team-McDonnell said they did not know about the phone blitz before it took place.

Is former Governor Palin trying to help a conservative, or is she building a base for a possible third party libertarian-style Presidential run in 2012? Hmm… we only have about two more years to wait and find-out.

  1. If Palin plans to run as anything but a Republican, she'd do better to simply run as a Libertarian...starting a new party at this point to specifically appeal to Palin followers would merely attract libertarian-Republicans and conservatives, without a chance of challenging the powerful Democratic Party.
