IOWA GAME CHANGER WITH PALIN: In Iowa, where Ms. Palin spent years developing support, the endorsement could be especially helpful. ”Over the years Palin has actually cultivated a number of relationships in Iowa,” said Craig Robinson, the former executive director of the Republican Party of Iowa and publisher of the website The Iowa Republican. ”There are the Tea Party activists who still think she’s great and a breath of fresh air, but she also did a good job of courting Republican donors in the state,” he added.
WASHINGTON TIMES: Cruz Camp blown Away With Palin Endorsement of Trump. A spokesman for Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign said Tuesday it would be a “blow” to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin if she endorsed businessman Donald Trump for president. “I think it [would] be a blow to Sarah Palin, because Sarah Palin has been a champion for the conservative cause, and if she was going to endorse Donald Trump, sadly, she would be endorsing someone who’s held progressive views all their life on the sanctity of life, on marriage, on partial-birth abortion,” Cruz campaign spokesman Rick Tyler said on CNN’s “New Day.”
Donald Trump ramped up his Florida operation with Sarasota GOP chairman Joe Gruters and former Rick Scott campaign manager Susie Wiles as Trump’s state co-chairmen. Gruters has opened a Sarasota office for Trump that will serve as the billionaire business mogul’s Florida campaign headquarters at 1517 State Street. Donald J. Trump added four staff members for his operation in Florida as he continues to lead all state polls by wide, double-digit margins. Jennifer R. Locetta will serve as Deputy State Director in Sarasota, Ken Mayo has been named Director of Field Operations, John Ross Pughe is joining as the Southeast Regional Field Director, and Craig Bachler will serve as Director of Coalitions.
