Appearing with host Greta Van Susteren on Fox News’ “On The Record” Monday night, Sarah Palin said that Mitt Romney won significant support from the faith-based community when evangelicals “witnessed Democrats booing God” at their convention two months ago:
Gov. Palin, who was GOP presidential candidate John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 campaign, said that the mainstream media “would like to ignore” that evangelical voting block. She added that the media treats evangelicals as a monolithic block of white voters, but a considerable number of evangelicals are of Hispanic, Asian and other ethnic heritage.
The former Alaska governor said that Hispanics should “fit right in” the Republican Party because most are pro-child, pro-family, and want economic opportunity. These are all compatible with the GOP party platform. “The Republican Party is a large tent,” she summed up.
“Tomorrow we have a chance to take our country back and put it on the right track,” the Tea Party favorite said. The governor quoted from scripture, citing II Chronicles, 7:14, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
