Tim Crawford, treasurer of SarahPAC, Governor Palin's political action committee, sent the following message via email:
On behalf of all of those we supported together, we would like to express our sincere appreciation for your patriotism, support, and dedication during our shared efforts this election cycle.
Our conservative movement continues, and we share with you the successes of the candidates you made it possible to support.
In 2010, with your efforts, we supported 90 great candidates and worked to elect over 50 new commonsense conservative leaders to Congress and state legislatures across our nation. Your support was critical to these initiatives and was achieved with the leadership of people like you, who share values and a responsibility to our nation.
The 2012 election provided the opportunity to build on that success, and we thank you for making possible the only Republican pick-up in the U.S. Senate. This change would not have been possible without your direct support.
This cycle, with your help, we worked to intensify support for grassroots and commonsense candidates in primaries who successfully took on challengers in their bids to bring those ideals to the Senate. Now elected, these new leaders will fight for constitutional principles and fiscal discipline. With your support, we also worked to return proven leaders to Washington to assure steady hands remain at the forefront and whose mentorship will be the guiding force to these new conservative Senators.
As 2012 draws to a close and the next opportunity looms on the horizon, our joint efforts remain crucial. The power brokers in Washington will still look for the easy path with candidates - those they know and that are habitual candidates.
We will never stop identifying and supporting local commonsense conservatives with strong messages who understand the need to put people over politics, [principles] over promises, and ideals over self interests.
You will always be the core and the guide and we are proud and thankful to join with you.
Yes, our work continues.
