Patty Robb of Manchester was among the many rally attendees who gave her contact information to the Organize4Palin volunteers, and said that she and her extended family would “definitely” vote for Palin if she were to enter the race.
Robb noted that Hillary Clinton surprised pundits by winning the Democratic New Hampshire primary in 2008 and said that Palin was well positioned with blue-collar voters here, despite currently lagging in the polls.
“She tells it like it is, which is what America needs right now,” Robb said.
Warren, New Hampshire O4P coordinator, and Heather, Connecticut O4P coordinator, noted that the event also provided opportunity for further grassroots organizing for Palin throughout New England as supporters from Maine came down to support the Governor:
Governor Palin closed out her speech with a challenge to the grassroots and Tea Party Americans:
And we do have a lot of work to do, friends.
The challenges before us, they can seem daunting, but we must not lose our optimistic spirit. It’s with optimism that America has always come through throughout our history, and what a history it has been!
