CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) ― Sarah Palin has endorsed Wyoming gubernatorial candidate Rita Meyer in the Republican primary.
In a Facebook posting Thursday, the former vice presidential candidate said "Meyer is ready to put her years of valuable public service to good use."
Meyer was elected Wyoming state auditor in 1996. She is seeking to replace Democratic Gov. Dave Freudenthal and faces four other candidates in the Aug. 17 primary.
In her endorsement, Palin said Meyer has a "unique blend of steel magnolia and mama grizzly."
