Sarah Palin announces she will not be ‘seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States.’ How sad.
Sarah Palin made a big announcement today, saying she will not be attempting to get the 2012 GOP nomination for President. But is there still a chance she’ll run as an independent?The answer is no. She told radio host Mark Levin she won’t be “seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States” and reveals she thinks “a third party would guarantee Obama’s re-election, and that’s the last thing that our republic can afford.”
Palin also sent a letter out to her supporters. Here’s an excerpt:
“After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States. As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order. [...] My decision is based upon a review of what common sense Conservatives and Independents have accomplished, especially over the last year. I believe that at this time I can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office – from the nation’s governors to Congressional seats and the Presidency.”
