Palin to Campaign for Steelman Friday Night in Cass County

GOP Senate candidate Sarah Steelman has hit the Mama Grizzly trifecta.
Steelman’s campaign announced Wednesday night former GOP Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin will star at a Cass County campaign rally Friday night.
That’s the trifecta
Palin’s endorsement of Steelman’s last week, followed by a Palin TV spot that started broadcasting this week, and the campaign stop at what is being called the ‘ Steelman Surge’ for next Tuesday’s primary.
The event will be at the Berry Patch Patch Farm at State Line and Cleveland in northern Cass County.
“I am so grateful to have Governor Palin’s support and very excited to say she will be coming into Missouri to participate in this BBQ. I know she will excite folks to come out and take a strong stand against the status quo,” Steelman said in a statement announcing Palin’s appearance.

Palin’s appearance for Steelman will come in the closing days of the tough GOP primary for the US senate nomination to run against Democrat Claire McCaskill.

McCaskill’s close ties to the Obama administration is a prime reason Missouri voters have soured on her at the end of her first term, according to the newspaper and TV poll
