Outside Alaska, Palin Favors Third-Party Run

Appearing Tuesday night on Fox's "On The Record" with Greta Van Susteren, Palin called for Akin to step aside -- but said that if he doesn't, her favored candidate in the primary should mount a third-party candidacy. Palin said that "maybe it is a third-party run of Sarah Steelman that I can get behind, and, granted 'The Status Quo Has Got To Go' would be an odd name for a third party, but we'll coin it, adopt it, run with it if that's what it takes." "He has until September 25th to do it (drop out)," she added. "If he doesn't do it, then it will be third party then."
