As Governor Palin mentioned in her most recent Facebook post, she is launching a new website to “Take Back the 20”–these 20 districts were all districts that McCain-Palin carried in 2008, but are currently represented by Congressmen who voted for Obamacare. Here is some text from the site:
20 House Democrats from districts we carried in 2008 voted for the health care bill
It’s been six months since President Obama signed his health care bill into law. Despite overwhelming public dislike of Obamacare, we were told that Washington knows best and there was nothing to worry about. Nancy Pelosi said Congress had to pass the bill so that Americans could “find out what is in it.” We found out that it’s even worse than we feared.
Join me in standing against those who stood with Obama and Pelosi in voting for this disastrous bill. The Democrats from 20 districts we carried in 2008 voted for Obamacare. Now we can vote against them.
Let’s replace them with good conservatives who will vote to repeal and replace Obamacare with patient-centered, results-driven, free market reform that provides solutions to people of all income levels without bankrupting our country.
Let’s reclaim the power of the people from those who disregarded the will of the people.
Don’t get demoralized, get organized. It’s time to take a stand.
The site also includes a list of candidates whom Governor Palin recommends to represent these 20 Congressional districts.
UPDATE: If you click on the surveyor symbols on the map at the bottom of the new website, it will pull up a brief description of a recommended candidate and provide links to that candidate’s website, Facebook page, and Twitter page.
UPDATE II: I just received an e-mail from SarahPAC with the following text regarding the new website:
Today SarahPAC is launching a new campaign to promote real change during this November’s election: Take Back the 20. SarahPAC has identified 20 House Democrats around the country who voted for the wildly unpopular Obamacare bill earlier this year and are representing districts won by McCain/Palin in the 2008 Presidential Election. The Take Back the 20 campaign is dedicated to helping the 20 outstanding Republican candidates in these races return common sense conservative leadership to their respective districts.
To make this happen, we need your help! Please visit our new website, learn about these excellent candidates and make a donation today. With the election being only 40 days away, maximize the impact of your contribution by donating by the September 30th deadline!
These 20 races represent half of the battleground districts necessary to send Nancy Pelosi back to San Francisco. In this raucous and rowdy election cycle, it’s easy to lose sight of the overarching goal: take our country back! That starts with turning these 20 blue districts red and by making a donation today, you can help us do just that.
