“Governor Sarah Palin is a strong, independent leader who is inspiring women across America to do all they can to help elect the McCain-Palin ticket,” said actress Janine Turner, star of Northern Exposure and Team Sarah Member. “They love her character, moral fiber, intellect, feistiness, and spunk. She is the essence of the independent spirit of America -- the pioneer spirit -- the type of spirit that made and makes America great. On www.teamsarah.org, that spirit is translating into action, as motivated women step up for McCain-Palin in these final days of the campaign.”
The Team Sarah Web site was launched on Sept. 19, and its membership has swiftly grown to over 40,000 members nationwide in a few short weeks. Membership has doubled in the past week.
“These women can ensure victory for John McCain and Sarah Palin on Election Day, and Team Sarah is excited to energize and activate them,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, Team Sarah co-founder and Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund president.
Last weekend, Team Sarah hosted an historic Million Woman Townhall that contacted over one million registered women voters on Saturday, Oct. 25. Over 100,000 women participated live on the line, posing questions to a panel of women leaders including First Lady Laura Bush, Jeri Thompson, actress Janine Turner, pollster Kellyanne Conway, policy expert Barbara Comstock, Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser and Susan B. Anthony List General Chairman Jane Abraham.
Panelists answered questions about the McCain-Palin ticket and encouraged women to support John McCain and Governor Palin by bringing three friends with them to vote on Election Day.
Team Sarah is a grassroots coalition of diverse women dedicated to advancing Sarah Palin's Vice Presidential candidacy.
