MANASSAS, Virginia, Sept. 3 /Christian Newswire/ -- With her acceptance speech, "Now we know why liberal Democrats hate and fear Sarah Palin," Richard A. Viguerie said.
"A week ago, conservatives and most Republicans were down-in-the-dumps, listless, unengaged. That lack of enthusiasm is a thing of the past. Tonight, thanks to Senator McCain and Governor Palin, conservatives and Republicans are fired up as they have not been since Ronald Reagan was president," he said.
"Sarah Palin is the next Ronald Reagan," Viguerie, the Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, said.
"In less than a week, Governor Sarah has captured the heart and soul of this convention, the Republican Party, and the conservative movement. She brings together social conservatives, and economic conservatives and libertarians, and people who are fed up with the Culture of Corruption that infests our nation's politics," he said.
"From this moment forward, there's no limit on where Sarah Palin might go," Viguerie concluded.
