Appearing on CNN’s “State Of The Union,” former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin told host Jake Tapper she would do “whatever I can” to help Paul Nehlen, who is challenging Speaker of the House Paul Ryan in the August 9 primary.
“I haven’t even got to call him and tell him I’m supporting him,” Palin said, “but yes, I will do whatever I can for Paul Nehlen. This man is a hard working guy, so in touch with the people. Paul Ryan and his ilk, their problem is they have become so disconnected from the people whom they are elected to represent, as evidenced by Paul Ryan’s refusal to support the GOP frontrunner that we just said, ‘He’s our man.'”
