Former Richmond, Va., tea party leader Jamie Radtke seems to really like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R).
Radtke, who is challenging ex-Sen. George Allen in a GOP primary for Senate, lavishes praise on Palin in the new film “The Undefeated” to be released later this month.
Palin is “not a member of the permanent political establishment,” Radtke says in the film, which boosts Palin as a champion of grass-roots conservatives. Radtke says Palin helped tea party activists such as the “organic person at the PTA” get involved. She said activists draw from Palin’s “strength.”
Will the film give Radtke’s long-shot candidacy against a powerful former Senator a boost? It’s unlikely, but maybe Palin would want to return the favor with an endorsement.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
