Is Sarah Palin swaying tea party conservatives to vote against House Speaker John Boehner’s debt plan?
The former Republican vice presidential nominee put an enigmatic comment on her Facebook page Thursday afternoon that seemed to warn freshman Republicans in the House that they just might face primary opposition if they cave in to demands by their party to raise the debt ceiling, The New York Times theorized.
“All my best to you, GOP Freshmen, from up here in the Last Frontier. Sincerely, Sarah Palin,” she wrote. “P.S. Everyone I talk to still believes in contested primaries.”
Just two hours later, House Republican leaders were forced to postpone the vote on their proposal to increase the debt ceiling at the last minute, apparently facing a revolt among some of those very members.
In her 4:03 p.m. Facebook posting, Palin wrote that “I respectfully ask these GOP Freshman to re-read this letter and remember us “little people” who believed in them, donated to their campaigns, spent hours tirelessly volunteering for them, and trusted them with our votes. This new wave of public servants may recall that they were sent to D.C. for such a time as this.”
