Video Flashback! Governor Palin Endorses Donald Trump for President

 

It was one year ago today that Governor Sarah Palin endorsed presidential candidate Donald Trump at a campaign event at Iowa State University in Ames. It was Trump’s first endorsement from a major political figure.

The endorsement roiled the Republican field, sending the campaign operatives of primary opponents into a tizzy, some into panic mode.

Palin’s trusted seal of approval with a large segment of conservative voters, helped propel the political outsider into contention for the Iowa caucus, leading to victories in New Hampshire and South Carolina, cementing Trump’s status as the front-runner for the Republican nomination.
