Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed Florida GOP candidates Rick Scott, Pam Bondi, and Allen West Wednesday during a visit to Newsmax Media headquarters in West Palm Beach to help launch Newsmax’s “Make America Great Again” campaign and webcast.
Meeting the press outside Newsmax headquarters, Palin answered questions and offered strong endorsements of Scott, who is running for governor; Bondi, a state attorney general candidate; and West, a conservative running in Florida’s 22nd Congressional District.
“I think Rick Scott is doing very well, and, of course, I’m rooting for him,” she said.
Regarding Bondi and West, she said they are “a couple of the folks who are running for, I think, some very, very key positions to help get this country back on the right track. And it’s been an honor and a double-edged sword though, any time that I attach my name to somebody’s campaign because then it seems like they’re under a little bit more scrutiny and criticism sometimes, so more power to ’em for being bold enough to accept an endorsement.”
Palin also addressed Florida’s U.S. Senate race, in which the Republican candidate is Marco Rubio, facing off with Gov. Charlie Crist, who switched from Republican to independent for the race, and Democratic Rep. Kendrick Meek. She noted “the uniqueness of Florida politics. Of course, your Senate race, too, is intriguing for the rest of the country. Many parts of the world are looking at how this senate race here will unfold and, you know, my pick there is Rubio, for what it’s worth. I think that he will help make those right decisions to get Florida and our nation on the right track.”
