(CNN) - Sarah Palin's dad is again weighing in on the Nevada Senate race – this time by starring in a new radio ad on behalf of Republican primary candidate Danny Tarkanian.
Palin's father Chuck Heath has long supported Tarkanian, one of the many Republicans hoping to unseat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid this November.
"You supported my daughter Sarah Palin, now please join me in supporting another strong conservative – Danny Tarkanian," Heath says in the state-wide ad, according to a script provided by the campaign. "Danny Tarkanian is strongly pro-life, and he will protect our Second Amendment rights. He will fight to cut taxes, slash spending, and end budget-busting pork barrel politics."
The retired science teacher who lives in Alaska made five stops across Nevada last October with Tarkanian, the son of legendary college basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian. A recent Mason-Dixon poll shows Tarkanian trailing Nevada GOP chairwoman Sue Lowden by nearly 20 points. The survey also showed Lowden leading Reid by 13 points and Tarkanian leading the Senate's top Democrat by 11 points.
Palin herself has not endorsed a candidate, thought she will be on hand for a Tea Party event later this month in Reid's hometown of Searchlight, Nevada.
The primary will be held on June 8.
If Nevada replaces Reid with son of Shark Tarkanian; they will get what they deserve; nothing
As somebody who thinks that Ms. Palin is exceptionally dense, I find it amazing that anybody thinks it would be a good idea to trot out her FATHER.
Where do you think that Ms. Palin received her whack-o worldview? Further, we actually have this man to blame for Ms. Palin.
So it's all come down to keeping women pregnant and guns? What a misguided group of people.
like father ,like daughter,,,,,,,,,,,,,,two idiots.
People from Nevada do not care what someone from Alaska has to say. When are these rethuglicans gonna learn?! Keep Politics local!!!
Danny was a whinner when he played basketball for UNLV- his political statements sound very much the same. Too bad.
We should trust his judgment because of what reason? I don't think that we should follow what he has to say solely because he is Sarah Palin's father. If the apple doesn't fall far from this tree, then I would tempted to get rid of the fruit and figure out how to get rid of the tree because the fruit is so awful.
While I greatly admire patriotism for our wonderful USA, the Palins are plain clueless!
Why do elements of the extreme right seem to think it's so great to be patriotic and DOWNRIGHT CLUELESS at the same time? That actually seems to be a very bad combination!
People who lve in Alaska should mind their own business.
Nevada GOP = John Ensign Fan Club
The Republican Party - Tarkanian, Lowden, and Palin included - thinks it is perfectly okay for a sitting U.S. Senator to:
1) have s*x with his chief of staff's wife,
2) bribe her with hush money, then
3) break all kinds of criminal ethics laws trying to get your friend a job as a lobbyist.
The Nevada Republican Party needs to answer why it HASN'T EVEN CALLED FOR ENSIGN TO RESIGN EVEN THOUGH HE IS UNDER *CRIMINAL* INVESTIGATION BY THE F.B.I.
REPUBLICANS ARE LIARS AND CORRUPT SCAMMERS!
If you think Sarah Palin is irrelevant (and she is), who in their right mind would listen to an irrelevant father of an irrelevant quitter?
You supported my daughter Sarah Palin, now please join me in supporting another strong conservative – Danny Tarkanian,"
And she lost!
Is there a pill we can give this woman to make her Disappear?
of course the timing of this......sen Reids' wife just out of the hospital...
realy odd..........but then again, anything about palin & co is odd........
"Youins' all dun give you support to my kin, Sarah earlier. Nowins I dun needs you to do it agin, specially since sheins my wife. " Kiss it goodby Tarkanian. The kiss of death has now paid you a visit and your candidacy is done
Another Failin Palin. The retard doesn't fall far from the tree.
Reid's going down either way, with Sarah or not. I'm afraid there is little hope. Great to see Mr. Heath get it on the action, I'm sure we'll see more of him soon!
I think he should stick to giving Sarah tips on what kind of ammo to use.
Palins and politics shouldn't mix.
she wasn't hatched?!
Perfect example as to why some people just plain and simply should not ever pro-create. These "Jerry Springer" guests type people from Wasilla are the perfect example. How long before their 15 minutes is up?
Good God!!! The torture has gone on long enough and should be banned!!!!
Since when was the Ice Queen of the Tundra's dad a political expert?
If you say so Chuck. Haha, what a frickin joke the Palin family is.
Read Sarah Palin's book and her Dad is a great guy. Could see why her daughter will make a superb President in 2013!!
That's fine that her father openly supports
a candidate he likes. People on this site
continually support candidates that they like.
That's America folks. If you don't like the
freedoms we all enjoy in this country then
pack up your belongings and leave.
Lucky us. The entire Palin family are glory hounds. I will never forgive John McCain, whom I once admired, for being so desperate to be president that he unleashed this woman on America by giving her legitimacy. Thanks John.
