Palin 'finally' rules out 2012 US Presidential bid

Washington, Thu, 06 Oct 2011 ANI

Washington, Oct 6 (ANI): Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has officially confirmed that she would not run for president in the 2012 elections.


Palin said in a letter to her supporters that the decision came after much thought, and that she and her husband, Todd would "devote themselves to God, family and country," the BBC reports.


"After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States," said Palin, who earlier ignited a storm of speculation about whether she will bid for the presidency.


"My family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision," she added.


Palin, however, said that in the coming weeks she would "co-ordinate strategies to assist in replacing the president, re-taking the Senate, and maintaining the House".


Palin did not endorse any of the existing presidential contenders, but ruled out running as a third-party candidate.


"I would assume that a third party would just guarantee Obama's re-election and that's the last thing our republic can afford. So the consideration is not there for a third party, no," she said during an interview.


Palin's announcement comes a day after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced that he would not seek the Republican nomination for president. (ANI)
