Her husband already said he’d vote for Newt Gingrich. Last night, in a conversation with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin didn’t make a formal endorsement, but recommended that – in order to keep the Republican primary contest going – South Carolina voters pick Gingrich on Saturday:
“I can tell you what I would do if I were a South Carolinian…If I were a South Carolinian though, and each one of these primaries and caucuses are different, Sean, I want to see this thing continue because iron sharpens iron. Steel sharpens steel. These guys are getting better in their debates. They are getting more concise.
“They are getting more grounded in what their beliefs are and articulating what their ideas are to get America back on the right track and getting Americans working again. If I had to vote in South Carolina order to keep this thing going, I’d vote for Newt and I would want this to continue. More debates, more vetting of candidates. Because we know the mistake made in this country four years ago was having a candidate that was not vetted to the degree he should have been.”
