Our votes made a big difference for Bristol! This is what you call boots on the ground, y'all! Ain't no stopping us--or Bristol--now!
Go over to Bristol's new offical Facebook page and say congrats!
Here's Governor Palin and Bristol on the Bob and Mark Show today talking about Bristol's performance on Dancing with the Stars.
Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:
It’s an honor to support Stephen Broden to represent Texas’ 30th Congressional District. As a teacher and pastor he has made it his life’s work to support the good people of the Fair Park and South Dallas areas in the beautiful Lone Star State. His community leadership helped provide better economic and educational opportunities by supporting private sector efforts to empower the people there. Through his Fair Park Friendship Center, Pastor Broden has provided practical help to those in need, proving that private charities can do much more than government can. As a Commonsense Constitutional Conservative, he is committed to getting our country back to the founding principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility.

Murkowski's entry into the race has had the effect of splitting the liberal vote (exactly what Ian predicted last week) and allowing Joe Miller to open up a 17 point lead against McAdams and a 15 point lead against the other liberal in the race, Lisa Murkowski.
On September 17, Murkowski launched a write-in campaign in a desperate bid to save her Senate seat. Her first campaign ad contained a misspelling of her own last name. This afternoon, Gov. Palin Tweeted news from two sources that Sen. Murkowski might be stripped of her energy committee leadership position.

Former President Bill Clinton said Gov. Palin is "resilient," "tough," and "somebody to be reckoned with," in an interview with Good Morning America host, George Stephanopoulos, where he covered the the sixth annual Clinton Global Initiative.
"In the Republican primaries she's very popular with the conservative base. She gets more people to come out. And she hasn't won all of her endorsements, but she's won most of them. And you know, she's a compelling, attractive figure," Clinton said. "I think she's clearly a public figure who is, who speaks well and persuasively to the people who listen to her. And she's somebody to be reckoned with,” he continued. "And she's tough."
Clinton's statements were intended to counter the left's meme that "a Sarah Palin Presidential run is the best thing that could happen to the Democrats."
Bristol Palin today launched her official Facebook profile. Bristol, Gov. Palin's eldest daughter is a contestant on Dancing with the Stars, and an advocate against teen pregnancy.
I would like to welcome everybody to my new official Facebook page! The launch of this page is part of a new and exciting chapter in my life. I have decided to embark on something new and step out of my "comfort zone" in order to tell my story and advocate for the pro-life and pro-family cause.
I look forward to continuing to speak to organizations that are on the front lines of both movements every single day. It is my honor to help these groups and organizations in any way I can.
Additionally, I am excited to be competing on Dancing With the Stars with my partner Mark Ballas, and I look forward to participating as one part of an ensemble cast on one of television’s more positive, and family oriented shows. Since I arrived in LA with my son, Tripp, nearly a month ago to prepare for the competition, we’ve both had a memorable and exciting experience.
Please check in often for up to date information on DWTS, and on upcoming events which will include speaking engagements, television programs and other media appearances.
I look forward to keeping you updated, as we move forward.
PS: Check out my DWTS performance

Lisa Murkowski conceded to Joe Miller, then initiated this desperate bid to retain her power. The misspelling of her own name for a write-in campaign is perhaps a sign that her campaign is ill-conceived and ill-founded.
