Former half-term Alaska Governor and Fox News commentator Sarah Palin recently campaigned for New Jersey U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan (R) and used one of her favorite tools, writing on her hand.
According to Buzzfeed.com, while speaking to a crowd of two thousand people at the New Egypt Speedway in New Jersey on Saturday, Palin yelled, “We need a leader not a tweeter! That was poem-worthy!"
"Leader not Tweeter," was written on one of Palin's hands, tweeted Buzzfeed.com writer Ruby Cramer.
“New Jersey, just know that the eyes of America are on you right now,” stated Palin. “Something big is happening here. And it’s exactly clear, it’s called momentum.”
However, Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker (D) is leading Lonegan by 53-41 percent, according to a recent poll by Quinnipiac University.
During his Saturday rally, Lonegan expressed his support with the unpopular government shutdown: "Tell Republicans in Washington, D.C., to hold the line. Hold the line! Hold the line! Hold the line!”
"They are absolutely scared to death of Sarah Palin coming here because they know she is going to mobilize this base," added Lonegan.
Palin also attacked the government, “They’re callin’ it the government shutdown, I think it should be called the slim-down. Because really it’s only 17 percent of our bloated, burdensome, out-of-control federal government that has even slowed down this week.”
Lonegan's anti-government Tea Party crowd held up signs that said “Don’t Tread on Me” and “Liberty or Death."
The campaign event was staged by the Tea Party Express and Sarah PAC, which is Sarah Palin’s political action committee.
