“Sarah shocked many when she endorsed me very early in 2016 and we won big,” Trump said in a statement released Sunday. “Now it’s my turn!”
In his statement, Trump also hit on the 2008 presidential campaign of his former rival, the late Arizona GOP Senator John McCain, who had chosen Palin as his running mate.
“Sarah lifted McCain’s presidential campaign out of the dumps despite having to put up with some very nasty, stupid and jealous people during the campaign itself. They wanted to destroy her, but she wouldn’t let that happen,” Trump said. “I am proud to give her my complete and unreserved support and encourage all Republicans to unite behind this wonderful person and her campaign to put America first!”
A special primary for Alaska’s only seat in the US House of Representatives will be held on June 11, and the special election will be held on August 16, the same day as Alaska’s statewide primary.
Despite being years away from her last election run, Palin is entering the running as a household name in the state. Since running for vice president, Palin has not sought another elected office, although the party has moved more toward the rhetoric that made her stand out as vice president.
