What’s going on today?
Here’s what Governor Palin reportedly says to Eric Bolling tonight:
“Any chance we can see you making a play, even after Iowa or New Hampshire?” Bolling asked. “There’s still plenty of time, Governor.”
“You know, it’s not too late for folks to jump in….who knows what will happen in the future?”
The interview airs at 10 PM EST on the Fox Business Network. Here is what the Governor told Fox Radio’s Todd Starnes earlier today. This statement that she reportedly gave to Bolling is different from the one she gave to Starnes given that Bolling appears to directly ask about the chances she reconsiders.
If she does indeed do what some are suggesting she will, the first state she would be able to participate in would be the Colorado caucuses. The first primary she could participate in would be the Arizona primary.
So why is Mark Burnett saying the following to the New York Post? If she did reconsider and won the nomination, she wouldn’t be able to take time off to film the series in the summer.
She wrote the following Facebook post.
If you want Palin to reconsider, the two people who you should cheer for are Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman as they are the two people who could finish off Newt and Romney in Iowa and New Hampshire. Ron Paul appears be a solid favorite to win Iowa but Romney is still the favorite in New Hampshire. Newt is still holding onto his base in the South for now but it’s unlikely he’ll be able to hold his strength in his backyard if he finishes fourth in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Anything but a first place finish in New Hampshire likely means the end for Mitt Romney. In a sense, a Paul victory in Iowa and New Hampshire or a Huntsman victory in New Hampshire would effectively start the race over again.
