Palin Backs Deb Fischer for Nebraska Senate Seat

By    |   Wednesday, 09 May 2012 01:06 PM EDT

Sarah Palin has endorsed Sen. Deb Fischer for Nebraska's U.S. Senate seat, according to NebraskaWatchdog.org.

The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate promised Fischer that “the Palins are in your corner."

In a press release from earlier today, Fischer said “I’m incredibly honored to receive the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin and Todd Palin. I greatly admire their willingness to stand on conservative principle and their resolve in standing up to the political establishment.”

Sen. Fischer's campaign office released a note from the Palins, which read, “Your efforts remind us of those our family put forth for Sarah’s races here in Alaska. Winning over voters through personal interactions is the way to go.

"People are tired of outside interests spending millions of dollars in political attack ads. We’re glad to see your grassroots efforts paying off!

"We admire your conservative principles and know that you will not go to Washington to amass great wealth or power. You will go to Washington to serve the people of Nebraska, protect our Constitution and work for common-sense solutions to help restore America.”

SarahPAC, Palin's political action committee, will contribute funds to Fischer’s campaign.

Prior to her election to the legislature, Fischer was a commissioner on the Nebraska Coordinating Commission for Post-Secondary Education.

Rick Santorum recently endorsed Attorney General Jon Bruning, and Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul endorsed State Treasurer Don Stenberg for the open Senate seat.

The primary election will be on Tuesday, May 15.
