A leaked e-mail is providing more grist for speculation that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is seriously pondering a run for president in 2012.
In the e-mail, Palin’s husband, Todd Palin, complained to Alaska Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller and Tim Crawford, treasurer for Palin’s SarahPAC political organization, after Miller declined to endorse the possibility of a Palin presidential candidacy.
Sarah Palin had endorsed Miller in his successful Senate Republican nomination fight against incumbent Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, and it is clear from the e-mail that Todd Palin expected some loyalty in return.
Miller, asked on Fox News Sunday in September whether Palin was qualified to be president, was non-committal, saying, “I am not going to get distracted by other candidates.”
The Todd Palin e-mail was leaked to themudflats.net, an Alaska website that reports on Palin and other political figures in the state.
