"Newt Gingrich is the best conservative who can win against Obama. Newt is a proven reformer and is not afraid to fight for the working man," Todd Palin said tonight in a telephone interview with Greta Van Susteren from his home in Wasilla, Alaska. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has not yet endorsed a candidate and did not participate in the interview.
In the final hours prior to his endorsement, Todd Palin spoke first to members of Newt Gingrich's campaign staff, then to Newt Gingrich himself. "I appreciated how he got his polling numbers up the old fashioned way with brain-power and perseverance," Palin said.
Van Susteren told him that she had heard Gov. Palin say that Mitt Romney was the weakest candidate the Republicans could nominate to take on Obama. "I'm not sure Sarah said 'Mitt is the weakest candidate,'" he responded. When asked if Gov. Palin was going to endorse a candidate, Todd Palin said, "I am not going to speak for her. You will need to ask her, but at least one Palin has endorsed Newt."
Van Susteren closed the interview by asking Todd Palin if he "misses the race or is content to sit on the sidelines."
"It's been an amazing process to watch. I'm glad she decided to sit this one out," Todd Palin said.
