Sarah Palin, at the last possible moment, gave Mitt Romney her coveted endorsement for President late Sunday night. She used her Facebook page to let her supporters know that She was for Mitt over President Obama. No one thought she wanted Obama to win but there was speculation she was going to stay out of the presidential race this cycle.
The former Republican vice presidential nominee wrote a long article on her page about this election cycle and the future of America that she saw. She did not actually mention Romney until the 14th paragraph, where she wrote:
“Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have offered a credible alternative to Barack Obama’s failed policies. Governor Romney understands how the free market works. His pro-growth economic policies will benefit all Americans. He has promised to move us toward energy independence, deficit reduction, and responsible entitlement reform that honors our commitment to our seniors and keeps faith with future generations. Governor Romney deserves a chance to lead. President Obama had his chance. He’s failed, and we can’t afford to go backwards.”
Palin finished of her statement urging her supporters to get to the polls and vote not just for Romney but all conservatives running in their home states.
“On Tuesday, please vote for Governor Mitt Romney and the commonsense conservatives running for office in your states.”
In a symbolic move to show her support Palin’s Political Action Committee gave $5,000 to Romney’s campaign.
Do you think the Sarah Palin endorsement will help or hurt Mitt Romney?
Last week, Palin’s political action committee donated $5,000 to Romney’s campaign, a gesture that was perhaps more symbolic than it was consequential.
