Palin: Scott Brown can stay

Fresh off the heels of her Tuesday victories, Sarah Palin tells Fox Business News that Scott Brown wouldn't last in Alaska, but considering he's representing Massachusetts, Republicans can "put up" with him.

DAVID ASMAN: By the way, is Scott Brown on notice? I mean, he's gone along with the Pelosi-Reid message for the past couple of votes.

PALIN: Well, you know, take the consideration, though, that's Massachusetts, and perhaps they're not going to look for such a hard-core Constitutional conservative there, and they're gonna put up with Scott Brown and some of the antics there.

But up here in Alaska, and so many places across the U.S., where we have a pioneering, independent spirit, and we have an expectation that our representatives in D.C. will respect the will of the people and the intelligence of the people -- well, up here, we wouldn't stand for that.

Palin also defended her support for John McCain by claiming he's "evolved" into "more of a fighter for conservative principles."
