LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - These voters, while failing to elect Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election, did propel Republican candidates in the historic 2010 midterm elections that saw Republicans take back the House of Representatives.

Palin's video shows footage and headlines from mainstream media outlets such as Politico referring to Palin as a "kingmaker." Conservative outlets like Fox News also acknowledge how successfully Palin has used her star-power to help elect conservative candidates to office.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is seen, also praising Palin for her fearlessness and being instrumental in electing senators such as Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Pat Toomey, Jeff Flake, Deb Fischer, Cruz and governors like Nikki Haley of South Carolina. "Sarah Palin picks winners," Cruz says in the video.

Former South Carolina Senator and current president of the Heritage Foundation Jim DeMint declared lat year that Palin's endorsement "has more influence in primaries than any other endorsement right now."

It's presumed that this dynamic will remain constant in the next two years as Palin is often seen as a one-woman clearinghouse for conservative and Tea Party candidates.

Palin is depicted at Tea Party rallies in places like Nevada and at the Iowa State Fair in 2011, where she impressed Iowans, liberals and the mainstream media by answering nearly every question asked of her and engaging comfortably with nearly everyone who approached her for nearly six hours.

Footage of Palin's 2013 CPAC speech is shown where Palin says, "Don't let the big consultants, the big money men and the big bad media scare you off" from running for office.

Palin also urges Republicans to focus more on "rebuilding the middle class" than rebranding the party and says "it is time to furlough the consultants."

She also highlights her signature issue of dismantling the permanent political class and fighting crony capitalism, beseeching Republicans to search for candidates from Main Street communities, PTA meetings, small businesses and Tea Party rallies.

"SarahPAC supporters - the 2014 elections are just twenty months away. We appreciate your support, together we have elected many great commonsense conservatives over the past four years," SarahPAC Treasurer Tim Crawford says in a statement posted with the video. "Together, we will keep fighting to support these bold candidates."
