Sarah Palin Targets 20 Democratic Seats for 2010

Tuesday, 23 Mar 2010 03:23 PM

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin announced a list Tuesday of Democratic members of Congress she intends to target for defeat this year, according to Politico.

Her strategy is simple. She said on her Facebook page that she’ll go after lawmakers who voted for healthcare reform and hail from districts she and Arizona Sen. John McCain won in the 2008 presidential election.

That means 48 Democrats in all are in her sights, but she's specifically interested in the ones who voted for the Obamacare package.

“With the president signing this unwanted and ‘transformative’ government takeover of our health care system today with promises impossible to keep, let’s not get discouraged,” Palin wrote in a post on her Facebook wall, urging supporters not to “get demoralized.”

"Three of these (20) House members are retiring – from Arkansas’s 2nd district, Indiana’s 8th district, and Tennessee’s 6th district – but we’ll be working to make sure that those who replace them are Commonsense Conservatives," Palin writes. "The others are running for re-election, and we’re going to hold them accountable for this disastrous Obamacare vote.

The remaining unlucky Democrats:

Ann Kirkpatrick (Ariz.)
Harry Mitchell (Ariz.)
Gabrielle Giffords (Ariz.)
John Salazar (Colo.)
Betsy Markey (Colo.).
Allen Boyd (Fla.)
Suzanne M. Kosmas (Fla.)
Baron P. Hill (Ind.)
Earl Pomeroy (N.D.)
Charlie Wilson (Ohio)
John Boccieri (Ohio)
Kathy Dahlkemper (Pa.)
Christopher Carney (Pa.)
John M. Spratt, Jr. (S.C.)
Tom Perriello (Va.)
Alan B. Mollohan (W.Va.)
Nick J. Rahall II (W.Va.).

“We’ll aim for these races and many others,” she wrote. “This is just the first salvo in a fight to elect people across the nation who will bring common sense to Washington.”
