The former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin announced yesterday that she will not run for Republican presidential candidate in 2012 elections, ending months of speculation.
“After much prayer and serious study, I decided not to seek the GOP nomination for U.S. presidency in 2012. As always, my family comes first, “said Palin, who was the Republican vice-presidential candidate in 2008, in a letter released today.
“My decision is based on a review of what independent and conservative have accomplished with common sense, especially in the last year. I think at this moment I can be more effective in a role to help elect other true public servants to different offices, from governors to seats in Congress and the presidency, “Palin said.
With this announcement, Palin becomes the second Republican leader this week to end rumors about her possible presidential candidacy, following the announcement in the same direction of the governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie.
