Palin Not Viable As Presidential Candidate: So Says Rep. Sig Rogich
If you listen to Sig Rogich, a long time Republican political operative, he says that says he doesn’t think former Rep. Alaskan governor Sara Palin is a viable choice to run for president in 2012.
Rogich worked with the presidential campaigns of both Bushs, as well as Ronald Regan. He says he has several reasons why he feels it’s not possible for Palin to be elected, besides the fact that he admits he “isn’t enamored” with the Tea Party candidate.
Rogich insisted to Nevada NewsMakers TV show during an interview that he “didn’t think she was electable” and that in time everyone would understand his reasons why he thought that way.
“As a candidate nationwide I don’t think she is electable for a presidency, and I think that over time you will see reasons why,” Rogich said.
Rogich said he does not believe a clear front-runner for the GOP in the 2012 presidential election has emerged yet. Rogich was asked who he believed could run instead of Palin. He responded with former Arkansas governor Mike Hucabee and Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour as his choices for presidential candidates.
Rogich has experience picking winner candidates. He led the Republicans for Reid in the Nevada Senate race in which U.S. Sen. Harry Reid beat out his opponent Sharron Angle, to go on for a second term of office. Rogigch said he believed many people who live in Nevada, including some moderate Republications, believed Angle was too set in her ways and went with plans that weren’t always the best thing for the state.
