(UnitedVoice.com) – On Friday, April 1, Sarah Palin announced she’s running for Congress to replace Rep. Don Young (R-AK). The former Alaska governor ran for the White House on the late Senator John McCain’s (R-AZ) ticket in 2008; the duo lost to former President Barack Obama. Former President Donald Trump is now setting the record straight about the 2008 campaign and Palin’s role.

“Today I’m announcing my candidacy for the U.S. House seat representing Alaska. Public service is a calling, and I would be honored to represent the men and women of Alaska in Congress, just as Rep. Young did for 49 years.” – SP pic.twitter.com/pdMpeDGlRV

Trump announced he was endorsing Palin in a statement issued through his Save America PAC. The former president said her decision to run “means there will be a true America First fighter” running to replace Rep. Young. He went on to say that Palin “lifted the McCain presidential campaign out of the dumps” when she agreed to run with the late senator more than a decade ago.
When Trump ran for president in 2016, Palin was one of the first popular Republican figures to endorse him. The former POTUS pointed that out when he returned the favor on Sunday, saying “it’s [his] turn” to tell the Alaskan people why they should vote for the ex-governor. He went on to call her a “wonderful person.”
Palin thanked Trump for his endorsement in a tweet.
Thank you President Trump! Honored to have your support in our campaign for Alaska! 🇺🇸https://t.co/CrlfiG8MJn pic.twitter.com/Ne1x7nFcAa
