Former President Donald Trump endorsed former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in her candidacy for Rep. Don Young’s (R-AK) congressional seat.
Donald Trump hailed the former Alaska governor as a “wonderful patriot” and praised Palin for her perseverance in the face of Democrat attacks on her.
“The wonderful Alaskan patriot Sarah Palin just announced that she is running for Congress, and that means a true America First campaigner will be on the ballot to replace the late and legendary Congressman Don Young,” said Trump.
Sarah Palin endorsed Trump very early in the 2016 primary. “We are ready for a change. We are ready and our troops deserve the best, a new commander in chief whose track record has proven he is the master of The Art of the Deal,” she said.
In his endorsement, Trump recalled how Palin bolstered the 2008 McCain campaign as the media and establishment Republicans sabotaged it.
“Sarah lifted McCain’s presidential campaign out of the dumps even though she had to put up with some very nasty, stupid and jealous people during the campaign itself,” he said. “They wanted to destroy her, but she wouldn’t let that happen.”
“Sarah Palin is tough and smart and will never back down, and I am proud to offer her my complete and unreserved support and to encourage all Republicans to unite behind this beautiful person and her campaign to put America first !” he concluded.
Sarah Palin last Friday announced her run for Congress to fill the seat vacated by the late Don Young, citing the economic devastation of the Biden era:
America is at a turning point. As I watched the far left destroy the country, I knew I had to stand up and join the fight. The people of the great state of Alaska, like others across the country, are struggling with runaway inflation, empty shelves and gas prices that are among the highest in the world. We need energy security for this country, and Alaska can help get that — but only if the federal government gets out of the way and lets the free market do what it does best.
“At this critical time in our nation’s history, we need leaders who will fight the left’s socialist agenda, the big government America burden,” Palin said.
“This country was built by heroes, and the far left is dishonoring their legacy by opening our borders to illegal immigrants, pawning our children’s futures and selling our nation’s interests to the highest bidder,” she added.
