Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is venturing into Lone Star politics by endorsing the re-election bid of Texas GOP Gov. Rick Perry over fellow Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison.

In yet another sign that Palin is expanding her national political footprint, the Dallas Morning News reports Palin wrote a letter addressed to “Texas Republican Women” that is being widely distributed by the Perry campaign.

"He walks the walk of a true conservative,” Palin states of Perry in the letter. “And he sticks by his guns – and you know how I feel about guns."

Portions of the letter were published Tuesday in the Dallas Morning News newspaper.

Palin also indirectly applauds Perry’s strong pro-life stance: "Not every child is born into ideal circumstances, but every life is sacred," the letter declares. "Rick Perry knows this – it is at the core of his being."

Perry’s campaign has reportedly distributed the letter to the 10,500 members of the Texas Federation of Republican Women.

Perry’s Web site declares: “Sarah Palin is a true rock star of the Republican Party and has earned high praise for her fiscal discipline and her commitment to transparency and government reform.”

Observers say the Palin letter is clearly designed to undermine Hutchison’s political support among women.

Last week, Palin announced the creation of SarahPAC, an organization that will promote her political endeavors nationwide.
