Former Alaska Governor and GOP Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin has formally thrown her support behind Todd Tiahrt today. A press release will be forthcoming from the Tiahrt campaign. However, Palin offered this statement on her Facebook account, which has been confirmed by Tiahrt’s staff.
Thank Todd Tiahrt for True Public Service
I’m happy to endorse Todd Tiahrt’s campaign to be the next U.S Senator from Kansas. Todd is a protector of our Constitution, a pro-family, pro-Second Amendment Commonsense Conservative who has never voted for a tax increase and has fought to end the wasteful spending coming out of Washington. He didn’t just stand on the sidelines complacently, but instead actually battled against the bailouts, the debt-ridden stimulus spending, the cap-and-tax energy schemes, and Obamacare. In fact, remember on the day Obamacare was being debated, Todd Tiahrt was on the House floor all day working to defeat it, and he’s helped lead the charge to repeal and replace Obamacare the moment it was signed into law. We can count on Todd to take on the liberal spending agenda of the Obama administration and fight for lower taxes, more individual freedom, and less government intrusion.
