(DCWatchdog.com) – This week, former President Donald Trump endorsed Sarah Palin for Congress, calling her “tough and smart” and saying she will “never back down.”
“Wonderful patriot Sarah Palin of Alaska just announced that she is running for Congress, and that means there will be a true America First fighter on the ballot to replace the late and legendary Congressman Don Young. Sarah shocked many when she endorsed me very early in 2016, and we won big. Now, it’s my turn! Sarah has been a champion for Alaska values, Alaska energy, Alaska jobs, and the great people of Alaska,” Trump stated.
Trump noted that he is giving Palin his “Complete and Total Endorsement” and has encouraged all Republicans to back her.
“She was one of the most popular Governors because she stood up to corruption in both State Government and the Fake News Media. Sarah lifted the McCain presidential campaign out of the dumps despite the fact that she had to endure some very evil, stupid, and jealous people within the campaign itself. They were out to destroy her, but she didn’t let that happen. Sarah Palin is tough and smart and will never back down, and I am proud to give her my Complete and Total Endorsement and encourage all Republicans to unite behind this wonderful person and her campaign to put America First!” Trump said.
Palin is currently running in a special election that will replace the former Alaska Republican Congressman Don Young, who passed away on March 18 after serving in Congress for nearly 50 years.
Palin, during her announcement, stated that she plans “to honor Rep. Young’s legacy.”
“I realize that I have very big shoes to fill, and I plan to honor Rep. Young’s legacy by offering myself up in the name of service to the state he loved and fought for because I share that passion for Alaska and the United States of America,” Palin said.
