Palin Backs P’Pool for Kentucky Attorney General
Less than a week until Election Day, former Alaska Governor and vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin has endorsed Republican Todd P’Pool for Kentucky attorney general. The Hopkins County Attorney is challenging Democratic incumbent Jack Conway and has sought to nationalize the race by promising to challenge federal environmental regulations and President Obama’s health care overhaul.
P’Pool says Palin has a record of not “going along to get along,” and bucking the establishment, which he promises to emulate if elected.
“I am extremely honored to announce the endorsement and support of one of America’s great conservative voices and Constitutional conservatives, Gov. Sarah Palin. Her endorsement brings a level of energy and excitement to our race that is nearly impossible to match,” he says.
Over the course of the race, P’Pool has received the nods of other high-profiled Republicans such as Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
The P’Pool campaign also released a robo call Palin recorded in support of the GOP nominee—although she mispronounces his last name—urging voters to support his candidacy.
