Palin endorses KY GOP candidate for Attorney General

MADISONVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is weighing in on a Kentucky race.

The former Republican Alaska Governor endorsed Todd P'Pool for Kentucky Attorney General Friday.

"I am extremely honored to announce the endorsement and support of one of America's great conservative voices and Constitutional conservatives, Gov. Sarah Palin," said P'Pool. "Her endorsement brings a level of energy and excitement to our race that is nearly impossible to match."

In a release, P'Pool also said that Palin's record of not "going along to get along" would be a trait he will seek to emulate.

"Governor Palin has never been afraid to buck the establishment and the good old boy system," said P'Pool. "She knows that I will be an independent Attorney General that will uphold conservative values and prosecute corruption without fear or favor."

P'Pool faces incumbent Democrat Jack Conway.

Kentucky voters will go to the polls on Tuesday, November 8.
