Former Alaska Governor and Vice-Presidential Candidate, Sarah Palin, endorsed Doug Ducey for Arizona Governor on Wednesday. Here is Palin's reasoning of her endorsement that she released on her facebook page:
“Doug Ducey is the private sector job creator and proven conservative leader that Arizona needs as its next governor,” Palin said. “A self-made man, Doug came to Arizona for college, working at the local beer distributor to pay his way through. After graduation, Doug applied his skills and work ethic to the business world. Through his efforts as CEO, Doug grew Cold Stone Creamery from a small local Tempe ice cream parlor with four stores into a major international chain with 1,400 franchises in 31 countries. Still headquartered in Arizona, this international business provides jobs and revenue for the state. Since being elected State Treasurer, Doug has fought to close financial loopholes, fix the state’s books, and stop a $1 billion annual tax increase.
“Doug recently shared his vision with me, which he will carry with him each day as Arizona’s governor: “I’m a believer in private enterprise, the dignity of work, limited government and the possibilities of freedom. I am a forthright defender of the right to bear arms – which is guaranteed not only by the US Constitution, but by the Constitution of Arizona. I am a believer in the rights of the unborn and the goodness of every life, and I have promised that as governor I will champion those values.” Right on!
“Cold Stone Creamery was always a favorite stop for my family when traveling during the ’08 campaign. Their creative combinations always hit the spot, and I believe Doug has the right combination to serve Arizona with his proven private sector skills and his record of conservative leadership. That’s why I’m proud to join Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and many other conservatives in endorsing Doug Ducey for Arizona governor.”
