Sarah Palin Warns GOP: 'You Didn't Build This'

Sarah Palin congratulated the Republicans on their sweeping victory in Tuesday's elections, but she also issued a warning.

"Now, new Republican Congressional majority in the House and Senate, please realize that Americans were not necessarily voting FOR any party; they were voting AGAINST the continued dysfunction and corruption in D.C.," the former vice presidential candidate wrote in a post on Facebook.

Just like the Democrats got "mauled" on Tuesday, Palin warned the same thing could happen to the GOP next time around.

"The Democrats got mauled today, deservedly so. To prohibit that from happening to the GOP in 2016, it must learn the lesson from the last time Republicans held the Senate majority. This time they must not retreat, and it's our responsibility to hold them accountable.

The former governor of Alaska also echoed a quote from President Barack Obama that was often used against him in the 2012 campaign, only this time she repeated it as a warning for Republicans.

"So, establishment types, remember that you didn’t build this! This majority that swept you into power tonight is thanks to the rank and file commonsense conservative grassroots. That’s who built it. And they expect results. They deserve the best for America."
