Just over a week ago, I suggested that the McCain campaign should send Sarah Palin to Maine where the moose-hunting Alaska Governor might be able to help put that state’s second congressional district into the Republican column this fall.
Well, it looks like the McCain campaign has taken my advice. According tot the Boston Globe, it’s turning to that very district:
Yesterday, Republican John McCain’s campaign announced that it had begun withdrawing from Michigan, but would start committing resources to Maine, where strategists say he has been buoyed by the addition of Sarah Palin to his ticket.
Christian Potholm, a political consultant and Bowdoin College government professor, this Palin could help sway some Mainers to vote Republican: “If the Republicans bring Sarah Palin up here to do a whistlestop tour through the Second Congressional District, I think they’ll not only win that district but they’ll win the state.”
Just read the whole article to see how enthused some Mainers, sportsmen like Palin, are about the Alaska Governor. Â It may be time for her to apply for a permit to go moose-hunting later this month!
