Emails Reveal Growing Feud Between Sarah Palin & Alaska Tea Party Candidate
HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - It has long been speculated that former Alaska governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin would mount a bid for the White House in 2012. So far, Palin has avoided directly answering questions about her intent. However, internal emails obtained by The Mudflats provide the most conclusive evidence to date that Palin will be running for president, and also indicate a behind-the-scenes rift between the Palins and an Alaskan candidate that they have both publicly endorsed.
An irate email written by Todd Palin seems to confirm his wife's presidential ambition, and revealed his anger at Alaska Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller. The email demands that the treasurer of SarahPAC, Tim Crawford, "hold off on any letter of support for Joe," and came on the heels of an interview Miller gave to Neil Cavuto on Fox News Sunday.
In May, the then-dark horse Republican/Tea Party Senate candidate Joe Miller gleaned an endorsement from long-time friend Todd Palin, followed on June 2 by an official endorsement via Facebook post from Sarah Palin. Miller's subsequent stunning upset over Republican incumbent Lisa Murkowski may have had more to do with a ballot proposition calling out social conservatives, but has been widely credited, at least in part, to the Palin nod. Certainly, the Palins' endorsement helped Miller receive an official endorsement, as well as substantial financial backing, from the national Tea Party Express, which made possible a massive media buy in a small, easily-dominated market.
Miller has had a heavy schedule of fundraising in Washington D.C., and has made multiple appearances on Fox News in recent weeks. On September 19, he appeared on Fox News Sunday with Neil Cavuto who addressed the rumor of a Palin presidential run, and asked Miller if he thought Sarah Palin was qualified to be president.
