Gov. Palin on Fox: More Vetting, Ideas Better for Electorate; No Endorse

More vetting and ideas is better for the electorate, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin tonight said on Fox News in a TV interview with Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier from her home in Wasilla, Alaska. Gov. Palin would not endorse any candidate tonight but noted that her husband Todd did endorse Newt Gingrich. "Todd is all about Carhartts and steel toe shoes," she said and he believes Gingrich is the best candidate for the working class. Todd based his endorsement on Gingrich having balanced budgets and fighting HillaryCare, and overcoming his own adversities.

Baier asked Gov. Palin if she would ask Florida voters to vote for a specific candidate like she had with South Carolina and if all the candidates should stay in the race or if there should be more consolidation. Gov. Palin said that Rick Perry was a patriot who "took one for the conservative team," and that Rick Santorum tonight gave "an awesome speech" which was about work and work ethic. Gov. Palin does not believe further consolidation is needed at this time. She urged Florida voters to listen to the candidates directly and specifically on their plans to get government off our backs and allow "the private sector to grow and thrive."

At the beginning of the interview, Baier apologized to Gov. Palin for cutting her off, as Ron Paul came on to give his speech. She supported his decision, saying, "it was more important to go to a warrior in the field than an arm-chair quarterback."

Gov. Palin was to be on the air with Judge Jeanine Pirro, however, that show was pre-empted by the post-election candidate speeches in South Carolina.

According to Fox News, Gingrich won South Carolina by 41%, with Mitt Romney a distant second in trail at 27%, Rick Santorum at 17% and Ron Paul at 13%.
