“Former Assemblywoman Sharron Angle (http://www.sharronangle.com/, insertion mine) continued to show momentum by winning the endorsement of the Club for Growth, a conservative group that often opens deep pockets to its favored candidates…
Erick Erickson, RedState blogger and conservative CNN commentator, switched his endorsement from Danny Tarkanian, the former UNLV basketball star, to Angle, saying she is the most viable conservative alternative to front-runner Sue Lowden.”
Senator Jim DeMint’s endorsements sometimes follow Erickson’s, according to Matt Lewis:
“But Erickson says it's only logical that he and DeMint would often come down on the same side in many races: "I think [DeMint] is more plugged into the grassroots than any of the other guys in Washington," he says. Erickson has also encouraged his readers to donate to endorsed candidates via DeMint's PAC.
Erickson implied to me -- and based on the chronological order of the endorsements, this rings true -- that DeMint may be taking his cues from RedState's endorsements, not the other way around.”
