Sarah Palin: Todd Palin 'Went Rogue' With Newt Gingrich Endorsement

Posted: Updated:

Looks like Sarah Palin isn't the only member of the family going rogue these days.

The former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate told Fox Business Network's Eric Bolling Tuesday night that her husband Todd's decision to endorse Newt Gingrich for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination was made on his own.

"First dude went rogue," Palin said when asked if she had been consulted prior to the endorsement. "And I respect him for doing that. Todd is all about hard hats and steel-toed boots and getting people to work."

Palin continued, "Todd obviously believes Newt Gingrich represents more of that connectivity to the working class."

Todd Palin announced on Monday that he was supporting Gingrich. The former House Speaker later tweeted that he was "honored" to receive the endorsement.

Sarah Palin has yet to endorse a candidate in the primary.
