Sarah Palin: Bring on the primaries

Powered by Topple

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin appeared on “The Kelly File” Thursday, saying the president is out of touch, Americans are the losers after the debt fight and that some GOP senators should have primary opposition in 2014.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly asked Palin if she thought Republicans were in danger of losing control of the House of Representatives in the next election.

Palin said the acronym for the “tea party” is about being “Taxed Enough Already,” and that the movement is all about following the Constitution.

“If the GOP stands strong on the planks and the platform that represents everything that I just mentioned, and if we stand united, we won’t lose the House and may even win the Senate,” Palin said

Kelly asked whether Sens. Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and Lamar Alexander may face primary challenges.

“I’ve been saying for years that robust competitive primaries make for a better political system,” Palin said. “It makes people work harder and express more articulately what their record is and what their intention for our country is.”

Palin said if a politician is not standing strong for GOP principles, they will see primary opposition.
