In a letter to her supporters, Sarah Palin has announced today that she will not be running for president in 2012. She will not seek the 2012 GOP nomination. She says that the decision was one careful considered by her family, husband and herself. Palin adds that she believes that she can be far more effective in supporting candidates running for offices in both the state and federal level. Sarah say that ″my family comes first.″ Palin adds that ″It′s not about me, it′s about all of us who are trying to wake up America.″ Sarah Palin will be appearing today on the Mark Levin Radio Show, where her decision will be a topic.
So the other shoe has now dropped after yesterday′s announcement by Chris Christie that he will not run for president in 2012. This means that the current field of GOP candidates is set and finalized. Of course, Palin′s announcement today does not rule out a possible run as an Independent should she feel unhappy about whoever the GOP does nominate. Five will get you ten that if Mitt Romney is the nominee, the rumor mills will be awaken once again. However, it should be noted that during her interview with Mark Levin, he did ask her about a third party campaign, to which Palin responded that ″it would guarantee″ the reelection of Barack Obama.
Sarah Palin has decided not to run for president. She will not seek the 2012 GOP nomination. Instead, Palin will work to help other like-minded Republicans, and Independents, run for offices at the state and federal level. Her decision was largely based on her family, which has been through quite a bit the past few years. Her announcement today ends the speculation of other people entering the Republican presidential campaign.
