Although there's been no word from Governor Palin verifying an official endorsement, Deb Fischer's campaign has posted correspondence with the Palins on the campaign website and has thanked the Palins for their endorsement. Fischer of Nebraska is running for U.S. Senate.
Today, Senator Deb Fischer, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Nebraska, announced that she has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin and her husband Todd Palin.
“I’m incredibly honored to receive the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin and Todd Palin. I greatly admire their willingness to stand on conservative principle and their resolve in standing up to the political establishment,” said Senator Deb Fischer.
“Our campaign is grassroots powered and focused on conservative policy solutions that will change the course of this nation. I’m a wife, mother, rancher, small business owner, and citizen legislator, not a career politician. To change Washington, we need to send a different type of person there. That’s why I’m running for U.S. Senate.”
At the onset of the campaign, Deb Fischer shared her story, her passion and and beliefs with Governor Palin and requested her support. Below is part of Senator Fischer’s note:
I am writing to you as both a fan of your strong, conservative principles and as a fellow female Republican. I have watched your career with respect as you take on tough issues, all while raising a family and serving your great state. Your career has inspired me and so many other female politicians who believe principles should be above politics.
Yesterday, Governor Palin responded with the following note:
Deb – thank you for your note. We have been watching your race closely. Your efforts remind us of those our family put forth for Sarah’s races here in Alaska. Winning over voters through personal interactions is the way to go. People are tired of outside interests spending millions of dollars in political attack ads. We’re glad to see your grassroots efforts paying off!
We admire your conservative principles and know that you will not go to Washington to amass great wealth or power. You will go to Washington to serve the people of Nebraska, protect our Constitution and work for common sense solutions to help restore America. We are happy to support you and have asked SarahPAC to send a financial contribution to your campaign.
Good luck next Tuesday – the Palins are in your corner.
- Todd & Sarah
I imagine Governor Palin will follow up with an official endorsement on her Facebook page and/or SarahPAC as she usually does. As of now, there is no official word from Governor Palin, but this is what Deb Fischer and media outlets are reporting.
UPDATE: The robocall Governor Palin recorded for Deb Fischer verifies the reported endorsement.
