Tea Partiers for T.W.

Gazette staff April 16th, 2014

Can Tea Partier and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s endorsement help Republicans win empty senate seats? Former House Speaker T.W. Shannon (R-Lawton), sure hopes so. Shannon is looking to fill state Sen. Tom Coburn’s position when he retires at the end of this congressional session.

Palin endorsed Shannon in a March Facebook post trumpeting Shannon’s accomplishments, including being the first Republican to with his district’s state house seat and becoming the youngest Speaker of the House in Oklahoma’s history. She also said he’s perfect for the job even though he is an “underdog” and has had many “naysayers” against him. But wait. There’s more.

“We can also rest assured that Shannon will bring to D.C. the integrity and moral compass he acquired growing up attending Bethlehem Baptist Church and teaching Sunday School. T.W. Shannon is exactly the kind of dynamic young conservative leader we need in Washington!” she wrote.

She also mentioned that Coburn leaves big shoes to fill and since Shannon is 6 feet 5 inches tall, he’s tall enough to fill them.

T.W. Shannon is one of the most gifted, conservative communicators I have witnessed in many years. He will be a tremendous asset for conservatives in the U.S. Senate. Thank you Sarah Palin for recognizing this outstanding individual

If he takes Republican morals to WDC we cam rest assured there will be a scandal shortly. Just call to mind the last republican that ran on morals and family values that got caught on camera kissing one of his staff and is now trying to get people to forgive him. I hope Shannon has better morals but it seems that all the people that run on morals and family values eventually let everyone down.
