Palin Power
October 25, 2008

2 on the Beat told you several weeks ago that the Harris County Republican Party was launching a fund raising effort to establish Governor Sarah Palin billboards.

Well, it looks like the party was successful because earlier this week I got a glimpse of one of the billboards.

The message is about making history and electing the first female vice president.

It’s clearly aimed at the republican faithful, independents and  woman voters,

2 on the Beat still thinks it’s  a little strange that Senator John McCain – who is on top of the ticket – is not pictured on the billboard. 

But let’s face it, Governor Palin is the one considered to have more star power.

While many accuse her of dragging down the campaign’s poll number,  others say Governor Palin has energized the base, inspired some women, and is drawing bigger and more enthusiastic crowds than her running mate.
