No Chris Christie, Perry raises $17M, Palin looking at deadlines?
The media is trying their best to push former Gov. Mitt Romney as the leader of the pack, and declare Gov. Rick Perry toast, yet Drudge today had this as their headline: PERRY POWERHOUSE: PULLS IN $17 MILLION "EXCLUSIVE: Republican White House hopeful Rick Perry raised over $17 million in 49 days, DRUDGE has learned. $347,000 per day; 20,000 unique donors from all 50 states, DC, Puerto Rico, and Guam. With more than half of donors living outside of Texas... Developing..."
Pretty good for someone who is toast.
Herman Cain has made a come-back. I think that is good, since he can raise issues against President Obama without the media playing the race card, though Conservatives who support Cain are still labeled as such.
But what do you make of this? Sarah Palin-affiliated law firm made early-state deadline inquiries Politico reports that sources say, "...calls were made on behalf of a mystery candidate to various early states to determine presidential filing deadlines." The article said that the filing cut-off is Oct. 28th. Guess we won't have to wait much longer. Maybe she is waiting to see if Perry bounces back in the polls, and if not, she will declare?
Personally, if Palin runs for anything, I would like to see her run for U.S. Senate in Arizona. The Senate would be a good place for her to help our nation by exercising her strong, consistently Conservative voice. She would also have an opportunity to burn off the media created negative baggage there. A Senator and former Governor Palin would be a strong Presidential candidate in 2016 or 2020, depending on who wins in 2012.
It is still early in the game; a lot can happen in the next 13 months. What I don't want is the media choosing Romney, the most uninspiring candidate for us, as they did last time with McCain.
