|Donald Trump won the Tea Party Queen's support.|
The former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin emerges from obscurity to endorse the controversial reality television star and business mogul Donald Trump.
She was the former vice presidential nominee for the John McCain campaign in 2008.
It comes as no surprise that Trump said that he would find a place for Palin in his administration if he was elected the president. Palin is a longtime supporter of Trump, and even backed his controversial call for a "complete shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States. Back in August, Palin raved about the businessman, praising him for "crushing it in the polls."
Matter of fact, this comes a huge blow to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) who is neck and neck with Trump.
Cruz wasn't thrilled about the endorsement.
I love @SarahPalinUSA Without her support, I wouldn't be in the Senate. Regardless of what she does in 2016, I will always be a big fan.— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) January 19, 2016
She was the one who helped Cruz and fellow candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) win their bids in the U.S. Senate.
Iowa's Republican governor Terry Branstad also went forth to slam Cruz because he voted against ethanol subsidiaries that fuels Iowa's economy.
