Sarah Palin Urged To Embark On 2012 Presidential Run In New Ad

Posted: Updated:

A new political ad is urging former part-time Alaska governor Sarah Palin to reconsider her decision not to run in the 2012 election. The ad from the group Conservatives4Palin pleads with Palin to "Run Sarah Run!"

Called "The Challenge," the ad features Palin's famous remarks against "crony capitalism" and images of tea party protesters mashed up with faded footage of Barack Obama. According to Mediaite, the ad will begin airing in Iowa tomorrow, roughly five weeks ahead of the Iowa caucuses.

"If this ad is able to build some momentum for the Governor, the best way to keep that momentum going may be to commission a national GOP primary poll that includes the Governor as one of the options," the group said in an announcement, according to The Hill. "We'll see if it's possible given our resources."

If Palin would decide to launch a presidential campaign, she would only have time to register for the South Carolina primary -- the deadlines for Florida and New Hampshire have passed. Palin has already stated that she will not be seeking the Republican nomination, making an official announcement in early October.
