Sarah Palin won’t run for president

Former Alaska governor plans to stay active in a non-elected role


Sarah Palin announced today that she will not be running for President of the United States in 2012. The former Alaska governor and John McCain’s 2008 running mate had been the subject of intense speculation about her plans, due to her large Republican fan base and fundraising capabilities. But on the show of conservative talk radio host Mark Levin, Palin read a prepared statement saying that she has decided she can “be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office.” She added that she will continue to fight for her favoured policies, including lower taxes, in a non-elected role.
