Palin Endorses Bongino for Senate

The former Alaska governor releases a written statement in support of Dan Bongino's bid against incumbent Sen. Ben Cardin.

Dan Bongino, the Republican candidate for Senate from Severna Park, got some support from Alaska on Monday when former Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed him.

"Though political pundits often dismiss conservative candidates running in deep blue states, I don't believe in ignoring good candidates simply because they're fighting uphill battles against the odds," Palin said in a press release. "In fact, I find such candidates incredibly brave and especially worthy of encouragement."

The odds of Bongino defeating incumbent Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) this November are slim. Real Clear Politics and Roll Call both mark Maryland's Senate race in their safely Democratic columns, and Cardin has outraised the former secret service agent by more than 10 to one when it comes to contributions, according to Open Secrets.

Patch reported in July that Bongino is hoping an will help him take on the Cardin machine.

Palin said, "We also owe it to voters in every state—even the deep blue ones—to support good candidates for office so that they have a genuine choice in November. That is why I'm honored to announce my support for Dan Bongino in his Senate race in the 'deep blue state' of Maryland."

In fact, Maryland has not sent a Republican to the U.S. Senate in 25 years.

Bongino said in a press release that he sought the support of the former vice presidential candidate and is honored to receive it.

"I am a political outsider, and I have constructed my campaign around the idea that public office is a sacred trust placed in our elected officials by the citizenry," Bongino said. "That sacred trust has been broken, and I am making an ironclad promise to the citizens of Maryland to restore it."

Now, the question is: Will Palin make an appearance in Maryland before the election?

Richard, These laws are not tailored for criminals or people with mental illness.. Only a fool would think that a criminal would abide by such foolishness. Criminals and the mentally ill could care less about abiding by such silly rules...that would only leave the perceived normal law abiding citizens stuck dealing with intrusive requirements that are really unnecessary and un Constitutional... Why in the hell do you think that a criminal would play by stupid rules....Only a mentally challenged person would assume such a thing. Patch Pigeon....someone that craps up a thread with really dumb comments on a regular basis...your not the king but you seem to be in the runnin.

Laura, you do relize that the bible wasn't written in English? It's a translation. The original hebrew , here, read it yourself. http://www.gotquestions.org/war-Bible.html
Just a guy August 24, 2012 at 11:36 PM
You are correct, if I shoot somebody, they are probably going to die. If I have to shoot someone, they are a direct threat to me and my life. So yea, if I shoot them, I'm making sure they don't get up. Are you saying you would just try to wound a 6'6" 250+lb guy that is intent on doing you harm? Good luck with that. Besides, you are much more likely to hit someone in a panic situation if you aim center mass. And 1 through the pump usually kills... You will only get charged if you let the bad guy out of the house, and then shoot them. Shooting them in the house is probably ok...lol
Laura Jackson August 24, 2012 at 11:36 PM
Please do not show your "ignorance," Richard. Of course, the Bible was not originally written in "English." It WAS translated. But, it was translated PERFECTLY with every stroke of every letter of every page of every chapter of every book to combine them all into ONE HOLY BIBLE. By the way, the Old Testament was written hundreds of years BEFORE Jesus was born (the scripture the Jews follow to this day). And, the New Testament was written AFTER Jesus was here, continuing AFTER His death on the Cross, and AFTER His resurrection. No need to inform me about the Bible. It is YOU that needs to know these things. And, as I said to the others (Frank, Assley, DawnP) and I will now say to you: I will no longer respond to anything that any of you have to say. I know the Lord would not approve of my associating with the sexually immoral/people who even so much as stand by the homosexuals. Therefore, I am done speaking. At least, to the four of you. My sins WILL be forgiven; because I am very close to God. Good-bye, Richard. You have no "friends" in here. So, you can join the others in "their" site--the site of darkness. Over here, those with the "traditional" views of what a marriage should be, over here with the Conservative Republican viewpoints in life--remain in the light. We can actually SEE the TRUTH. Unfortunately, the Democrats are living in darkness, which is why they are clueless. Good luck to you!

lol what are you smoking? I said, what you said was equivalent to the same statement made by a person of color... Like I said, you don't understand what you read. Oh never mind, you racist little thing...
Just a guy August 25, 2012 at 12:14 AM
Laura, you are an idiot.
Just a guy August 25, 2012 at 12:17 AM
And I am a Republican, just not YOUR kind. I'm one that thinks and reasons, rather than repeats Fox 'news' taglines...
Laura Jackson August 25, 2012 at 03:21 AM
Richard Sperry 8:14 pm on Friday, August 24, 2012 Laura, you are an idiot. Richard ("DICK"), I will say this to you: YOU brought up the "RACE" card first. YOU mentioned that "a person of color" (YOU ARE BLACK OBVIOUSLY) would say only WHITE people are mass murderers. You know WHY the BLACK guy at Morgan State College ate his roommate? Because someone told him (the BLACK guy) he had NO HEART and only HALF A BRAIN. SO, HE ATE THEM BOTH! And, to think--he was found not to have any drugs in his system. Unbelievable. You criticize "RACIAL" profiling. However, it is necessary at times, you fool to capture a criminal--which, by the way, 90 percent of the prisons are filled with BLACK people. BLACK people are the only ones who cry to a CIVIL RIGHTS group (NAACP--whereby they should change their name--since they are no longer called, "Colored People" but want to be called "African-Americans"--even though most, except Obama, were not born in AFRICA). No other group of people--white, hispanic, indian, or asian people have a "civil rights group." Only BLACK people cry out "discrimination," which is WHY they get all of the government benefits. One man slept all day at his desk at work (BLACK). He got the NAACP involved because he got demoted. Guess what?? Not only did he get his job back, but he got a PROMOTION. That would not happen to ANY OTHER RACE! It makes me SICK. Call me a "racist." But, the fact is that more BLACKS HATE WHITE people and always have.
Laura Jackson August 25, 2012 at 03:27 AM
And, why is that, Richard? I'll tell you why. Because Black people STILL blame white people for slavery!!! And, none of US had anything to do with slavery. But, it is still being taught in schools. Black people wanted the same rights as whites and wanted to go to "white" schools. Yet, if you notice, the majority of "white" schools are now all predominantly black. And, if black people wanted to be treated the same as white people, why do they "separate" themselves into their own category? They have their own section in the library for Black History Month. Why not just have a History section? You don't see an Asian History Month or section in the Library. You don't see an Indian History Month or section in the Library. You do not separate other races or the Libraries don't separate them from the History section (only the blacks do that). Black people have their own television channel (BET). Would blacks tolerate a white entertainment television station (WET)? Nope. Blacks have their own beauty pageants strictly for THEM. Yet, white people or any other race cannot have their own beauty pageants. Black people have a thing called the Million Man March. Really? Could you imagine the outrage if white people had a Million Man March through Washington, D.C.? No--because, the white people would be called "RACISTS." I am so sick of the whole "discrimination" cries that are unwarranted. It's more of a reverse-discrimination. And, I'm racist?
Laura Jackson August 25, 2012 at 03:34 AM
Is that why, Richard, I dated outside of my race before I got married? And, the only reason I stopped dating THAT person was because I was "threatened" by a BLACK woman. So, yeah--black women HATE white women/indian women/asian women or any other woman who is NOT black. Then, there was the case with Don Imus. Shall I mention that one? He was FIRED from his job for calling the Ruetgers Basketball Team a bunch of "nappy-headed ho's." He even went to personally apologize to these women. They said they forgave him for his comment. Then, they filed a LAWSUIT against the man and had him FIRED from his job. Talk about a bunch of back-stabbers. And, while Don Imus was "punished" for saying "nappy headed," immediately afterwards, Halle Berry (who is BLACK) published a book called, "Nappily ever after." But, THAT was fine. Then, there are those BLACK people who say they HATE the "N" word. Really? Because, I hear them constantly say that to each other. They use the "N" word (which I do not like using myself) over and over and over in their RAP songs. It's not even "music." It is screaming loudly, not understanding a single word, except when they mention the "N" word. So, why can they say it CONSTANTLY and it's okay; but, they are "bothered" if someone else uses that term. Even Eminem caught flack (a Rapper) for using the "N" word in one of HIS OWN RAP SONGS. Is that fair? No, it is not. So, do NOT call me a racist, Richard. You do not KNOW me at all!
Laura Jackson August 25, 2012 at 03:42 AM
Everything I have stated (above) is all based on FACTS. There are so many other instances I could mention, but it would take too long to talk about. And, I really do not choose to talk to someone with such little regard for me or who puts me down just because I said I was a Conservative Republican and because I said I oppose same-sex marriage. It's like talking to a wall. And, I don't care to have anything to do with you anymore. I'm sure Brian, Bill and Buck all feel the same about you--as they have said, "Pidgeon Poo." You are no better than the other people in the "same-sex marriage site." So, why don't you go over there and speak to them. Apparently, they will all agree with everything you say, and they all have the SAME beliefs as you do. They are all gay or gay supporters. They all claim they LOVE EVERYONE (except those like me who disagree with their lifestyle--so what). And, because I have a mind of my own and say what is on my mind, and state my strong religious beliefs, they call me a BIGOT for that??? You call me a "BIGOT" AND AN "IDIOT." Well, let me leave YOU with one last thing, "Dick." On "name-calling" with words that end with the "IT" sound, I would much rather be called a "BIGOT" or an "IDIOT" than to be a "FAGGOT." OH NO. I said a bad word. Whatever! I call 'em like I see 'em. And, you have no business in THIS site (seeing that you disagree and argue with everyone here).
Laura Jackson August 25, 2012 at 03:49 AM
You've made it perfectly clear, RICHARD--you HATE the BIBLE and its translations (especially the SLAVERY part, which you have NO understanding of its meaning); you HATE GOD; you believe the Bible is a FAIRY TALE; you agree with others in the other site that Jesus was/is GAY; you SUPPORT everything the same-sex people say; you HATE guns, etc., etc. So, if you really want to see a "HATER" of EVERYTHING AMERICA STANDS FOR, GO LOOK INTO A MIRROR, RICHARD. Oh--one last thing: You said it would be fine to shoot a person in your house and kill him so long as it wasn't outside. Please, please, please do that! I KNOW many cops, Richard. And, all say it is NOT okay to KILL anyone (even if they ARE inside of your house, as in breaking and entering). So, please kill anyone who breaks into your house. Then, the statistics would just go up for those of YOU who are in jail. Then again, seeing you approve of men being with men (as you have said), jail must just be a great place for you to live. From what I've heard, that's what happens there. Why? Because, men are stuck living with men when they serve their life sentences. Good day to you, sir! And, do not EVER say you served in the Military. I can tell by the way you act and talk that you have NO RESPECT whatsoever for American Citizens. You agree with Obama and don't want to back up Israel (which is not an OPTION). It is a NECESSITY! So take your Ditzy Democratic, gay-supporting behind and leave this site (PLEASE). DONE!
Laura Jackson August 25, 2012 at 03:58 AM
And, do NOT insult the rest of us by calling yourself a "Republican." You don't even know what that means. You don't believe in ANYTHING Republicans believe in. And, I do not believe for one second you served in the military. Not buying it. After all, you HATE guns. How could you be in the military and get away with not having to handle a gun??? Doesn't work that way. I KNOW THIS. MY FATHER WAS IN THE MILITARY. He fought in WWII, was captured by the Germans, was tortured by the likes of Hitler, held in a Prison Camp for over a year (when most of them died from starvation). After receiving not one--but TWO PURPLE HEARTS--he got an Honorable Discharge (where he spent over a year in the Veteran's Hospital). So, don't dishonor this Country by attempting to make yourself out to be a hero. A hero who HATES guns, HATES AMERICANS. I stood up in the other site and said that when IRAN IS THREATENING ISRAEL and wants to kill ALL JEWS, CHRISTIANS, and ALL AMERICANS, you laughed and joined in with the other "gays" over in that site. You are nothing to me. Worst of all, you are NOTHING to God. God lives within me, and I trust in Him. I trust in His WORD. You do not. So, I will let go and let God. And, the wrath I feel right now will be nothing compared to the wrath you will feel when YOU, sir, stand before God come Judgment Day. You are the HATER. Not ME. I just stand up for myself, stand up for God, stand up for Jesus Christ, and stand up for Americans! BYE, DICK!

Good night Dick..

Wow.. I hate the bible? Nope. I hate the people that think they can pick and choose what they will take from it and beat other people up with. And one more thing. If God is all powerful, sees everything, chooses when to let all people die? Why does he need your help? Why don't you just live your lift to the best example that YOU can, and let him sort out the rest... After all this world is not the final reward. Faith alone won't get you into heaven, it's also your acts... Please read the ENTIRE bible. I'm not against all guns, just some of them... Pretty reasonable if you ask me... I served in the US Navy, I went to sea on ballistic missile submarines, (1980-1990) and stood guard so that you have the freedom to be the racist, bigoted, dumbass that you clearly show you are. What did YOU do?

I don't think he's an idiot, just someone who has a fundamental misunderstanding of the origins and purpose of our government. He's not alone, there are tens of millions of people who believe as he does. This is what our education system and the media has wrought upon our nation. Reversing it will be a monumental task.

Frank, I've endured your rants for over a week. So many, this leads me to believe you are not gainfully employed. Get a job and get off the subject due to the fact you are severely misguided.
Buck Harmon August 25, 2012 at 08:31 PM
I understand your problem now...once sea sickness settles into the head it's hard to shake. You say some really dumb things....

Buck Harmon August 27, 2012 at 02:28 PM
Frank...sorry...it's just my nature...first step to any restoration project is to remove to rot. I view this blog as a kind of restoration project in that several opportunities exist for me. First~ the opportunity to engage in some semblance of meaningful conversationto attempt to understand and hopefully contribute to potential solutions to the many problems that our society and country endure. Second~ To actively seek out the rot that seems to hinder the first, if you are a part of the rot....I'll let you know it....it's all a part of an existing condition survey being conducted on the Patch blogs....actually very interesting stuff from my park bench perspective... poo away...have a great day!
