Former US vice-presidential candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin already chose who to root for in the on-going tussle for the presidential nomination of the Republican Party during a district convention in her home town of Wasilla, Alaska. However, the ex-governor refuses to name her presidential bet.
A field reporter for CNN caught Palin after she cast her ballot and asked her who gets her support. Palin declined to be specific and would rather keep her silence on the matter.
“I would not tell you who I voted for in this presidential preference poll,” Palin flatly told the reporter. The former running mate of John McCain during the 2008 US presidential election also expressed her interest to see the current presidential nominees go through the long process of selection.
“I do believe that competition makes all of our candidates better,” Palin said.
Palin’s husband Todd already announced that he is supporting Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign.
The interview also provided Palin a platform to hurl some comments against President Barack Obama and his administration. Palin has been a vocal critic of Obama and his policies, especially on the War on Terror campaign and the rising deficits of the government.
“I want to see the process continue, more debate about who it is who can bust through the Orwellian Obama rhetoric and pandering that we see in the incumbent.
