Sarah Palin Endorses Mitt Romney One Day Before Election

Sarah Palin offered GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney her endorsement on her Facebook page late Sunday night, just 24 hours before Election Day.

The former Republican vice presidential nominee penned a lengthy statement about the bearing of this year’s election on the future of the country. She did not actually mention Romney until the 14th paragraph, where she wrote:

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have offered a credible alternative to Barack Obama’s failed policies. Governor Romney understands how the free market works. His pro-growth economic policies will benefit all Americans. He has promised to move us toward energy independence, deficit reduction, and responsible entitlement reform that honors our commitment to our seniors and keeps faith with future generations. Governor Romney deserves a chance to lead. President Obama had his chance. He’s failed, and we can’t afford to go backwards.

Palin concluded by urging voters to cast their ballots for Romney on Tuesday -- the biggest show of support Palin has offered the former Massachusetts governor.

“On Tuesday, please vote for Governor Mitt Romney and the commonsense conservatives running for office in your states,” Palin wrote.

Last week, Palin’s political action committee donated $5,000 to Romney’s campaign, a gesture that was perhaps more symbolic than it was consequential.
