Yeah, I know, it’s boorish, but it’s news so here you go: Sarah Palin is injecting her Mama Grizzley-sized mouth into New Jersey’s Third Congressional District race, Save Jerseyans, by formally endorsing Steve Lonegan.
“Steve is the type of conservative leader we need,” said former Governor-turned-reality star Palin in a statement announcing her support. “He believes in the free market principles this country was founded on because he has seen first hand how they can lead to success. In Washington, he will be a dedicated fighter for lower taxes, balanced budgets, and lessening the burdens of regulations on small businesses.”
No one would be surprised by tonight’s announcement nor by the choice itself. Palin’s Tea Party Express organization had already endorsed Lonegan earlier in the cycle; she was last in New Jersey to stump for him at an October 2013 Ocean County rally before the special U.S. Senate election showdown with Cory Booker (D-Twitter).
No word yet as to whether Palin plans to mock any additional Christian sacraments before voters head to the polls on June 3rd.
