Key Take-Away's From Palin's SarahPac;+800k From Small Donor's/Politico;"Palin's Playing Serious Politics" ("Irrelevant"?)

The key take-away's from Politico;'s reporting on Sarah Palin's Sarahpac. You can read the whole post 

Palin's support comes from small donor's not the big time GOP establishment types. A thing to note about that is her 3 million  plus Facebook supporter's who could be the source of a massive campaign chest should she run without any ties to the Beltway.

The financial support her Sarah Pac gives to the named candidates is also instructive. Ted Cruz, for one, owes his career trajectory to Palin, which he readily admits-we'll see how that plays out in the future.

"The vice presidential spotlight may now shine exclusively on Joe Biden and Paul Ryan, but that’s not stopping Sarah Palin from playing serious politics in Election 2012’s final stages.
Sarah PAC, Palin’s leadership political action committee, spent more than $774,000 during the year’s third quarter after taking in more than $843,500 — the bulk of it from donors who contributed $200 or less, federal records filed Sunday show.

The campaigns of 10 political candidates received direct donations from Sarah PAC in the four-figure range. They include Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.); Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), a U.S. Senate candidate; Republican Senate candidate Ted Cruz of Texas; and Republican House candidates Mia Love of Utah and Ted Yoho of Florida."
