Sarah Palin Says It’s Not Too Late For More Entrants In GOP Presidential Race


gop-debate2Sarah Palin is not convinced the Republican presidential candidate will come from the current pool of hopefuls, saying it was not too late for a new entrant to join the race.

The former Alaska governor told FOX News Radio, “Things can still be shaken up. Things can change in terms of candidates coming and going.”

Palin said over the weekend that she was not enthusiastic about anyone in the current GOP field.

“I don’t think that the field has to be considered set today — set and locked up,” she said. “Even beyond Iowa I think there is time for more shakeup.”

Palin said in October that she would not seek the GOP nomination.

She told FOX News & Commentary that she has concerns about the current GOP field and what she called their lack of focus on economic issues.

“No one seems to have really grasped, except for Ron Paul, the gravity of our economic situation,” she said. “And with Ron Paul, I don’t agree with all of his foreign policy decisions.”

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said he agreed with Palin’s assessment.

“I would not be at all surprised to see one or two more candidates between now and the end of April,” Gingrich told FOX News & Commentary. “The clock is running but the clock sure hasn’t stopped.”

And while Gingrich declined to name names, he did say that Palin could stir up the race.

“If somebody who had her level of popular support jumped in that would stir it up one more time,” he said.

Palin said she also had concerns about the lack of focus on “values and character” from the GOP field. “It’s not all about politics,” she said. “It is all about value and character.”

  1. Right,
    It’s in Sarah Palin’s best interest to enter after the primary debates, and then whittle down the presidential debates to just one – Its more likely that she’ll manage to stay coherent for that one debate.

  2. I’m growing more and more convinced that there really are commenters that have infiltrated unzer blogs and comment for their own poitical purposes . I can’t tell for sure if they are organized or not but its beginning to look that way.
