The Omaha-World Herald as well as The Hill have both reported earlier in the hour that the Deb Fischer campaign (U.S. Senate, Nebraska) has received an endorsement from Governor Palin.
Also, Fischer’s campaign website includes a note from Fischer to Palin:
"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."
The Palins’ response:
"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
You may remember Deb Fischer. We highlighted her here at C4P months ago and had a collective look at her with all of you.
