Five Iowa Republicans running for U.S. Senate have a little more than five weeks to win support from primary voters. Sunday, one of those candidates, Joni Ernst, called in former Alaska governor Sarah Palin to lend her support.

“Time is short. We don't need a lot of touchy - feely compassion, singing around the campfire when it comes to these campaigns,” says former vice president candidate, Sarah Palin.

Palin came in swinging during the heels off, gloves on rally on Sunday in West Des Moines.

“They try to make it sound like women are defenseless; that women need big government to run our lives because they can run it better than we for ourselves.”

For 15 minutes she tore down what she claims liberals have dubbed against conservatives, “The War on Women.” Endorsing Ernst, Palin encouraged the room to support Ernst in her campaign for US Senate.

“She’s not one that`s going to be told to sit down and shut up and sit in the back corner and let the good old boy keep doing that their doing all these years that is refreshing that is what is needed.”

Some say publicity from Palin will help Ernst earn the title of Iowa’s first elected female.

“I think it will help her. She has a strong following too and I think Lt. Kim Reynolds helping too, will be great,” says supporter, Amanda Waske.

However the Democratic Party of Iowa says, "If Ernst and other Iowa republicans believe Palin is the best representative to speak on their values, they are in for a rude awaking. With one of the smallest crowds she has ever had in the state it's clear that Iowan’s are less than impressed with a right wing celebrity like Sarah Palin.”

Still Ernst stood before 300 supporters pushing her plans to repeal and replace Obamacare and defend second amendment rights, hoping to earn her way to Washington D.C.

“I do have a servant’s heart I want to continue serving. Send me to Washington D.C. Let’s make it happen,” says Ernst.

Ernst is considered a front runner for the seat. Mark Jacobs, Matt Whitaker, Sam Clovis and Scott Shaben are also competing for the seat. The primary is set for June 3rd.

    ‘Walking POS/DEBT’ Obama and Hillary ‘Benghazi’ Clinton are 2
    faces of the same coin.

    When something goes right, they love to take credits.
    When something goes wrong, they blame it on someone else.

    These people are not leaders. They are LIARS and COWARDS.

    Obama, Hillary, Holder, Reid, Pelosi, what a crew. How anyone could vote for any of them is beyone me. They have pulled off the biggest scam in US history. From health care to Benghazi, wind power to solar power, to make em pay their fair share illusion, IRS to fast and furious, The deficit to foreign policy. The list is endless.
    And yet they can still blame Bush, and people still buy it. It’s beyond me. The Bible is right, people are sheep. Doesn’t matter what you do, just tell the people your on their side, blame someone else and they will buy it every time.

    Jodi Ernst would do much better to stand on her own than be aligned with an illiterate twit like Sarah Palin.

    Because a corrupt news network “FOX News” gives her a job that somehow gives her credibility? Maybe to tea baggers and pro wrestling fans but not to anyone with half a brain. Palin is nothing but a white trash has been mouth piece for a broken down corrupt republican party.
    She and her pals Reynolds and Ernest and really stupid people and they should be ashamed to think the rest of us in Iowa are as dumb as they are.

    Love the ISU hoodie……She really is one of us. LOL I thought I seen her being pulled out of a creek face down in Ames a couple weeks ago.Palin is a walking disease.

    There was a time when I admired Sarah Palin, but time proved her to be as divisive to Republicans as Ron Paul. I have also been leaning toward Joni Ernst, but with Palin’s endorsement, I am re-thinking my decision. Republicans need to be supportive of their candidates, and Palin was not helpful in the 2012 election cycle. Sadly, I’m afraid her Ernst endorsement does not reflect well upon Joni Ernst.

    – Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told a capacity crowd at a National Rifle Association rally how she would baptize terrorists if she was an elected official.

    “If I was in charge,” Palin said Saturday in Indianapolis, “they would know, waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”

    Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who ran against then Sen.-Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election, with Palin as his running mate, has spoken out against waterboarding, calling it illegal and ineffective. During the Vietnam War, McCain endured years of torture and imprisonment as a prisoner of war under the North Vietnamese.

    She just lost alot of IOWA fans by wearing that shirt. LOL she really needs to be a blond so she has an excuse

  • Clones Rule

    Hey, can’t fault her for wearing a hoodie supporting the team that had a fantastic run in basketball. I’d have chosen that one over the Iowa hoodie, too.

  • Coffee Pot

    I’m not really a republican, but what she says makes sense to me. And I really don’t care what mccain thinks. I favor treatment of terrorists a little different. Take them up in a helicopter with their buddies, toss the first one out, the next one usually talks.
