Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is going all out for embattled congressional candidate Lizbeth Benacquisto in Florida.
Palin is headlining a barbecue fundraiser for Benacquisto, even after it was learned that Benacquisto fully embrace Obama’s failed Stimulus Act of 2009, as well as fighting hard to receive those federal dollars.
Benacquisto, who is facing Curt Clawson and Paige Kreegel in a contentious primary election race to replace Congressman Trey Radel (R), has been been avoiding forums, including the upcoming League of Women voters forum.
Benacquisto initially said that she would not be attending the event because of her legislative duties in Tallahassee, Florida, but will now be in the congressional district to host the high-dollar fundraiser with Palin.
The problem that Benacquisto has is that she originally said that she couldn’t make it because of a conflict with her job as state Senator, but now has apparently been able to deal with that conflict in order to attend the fundraiser, and not the forum.
