Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will not seek the Republican nomination to  challenge Barack Obama for the White House.  Her statement follows:

“After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not  be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States. As  always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves  to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.

My decision is based upon a review of what common sense Conservatives and  Independents have accomplished, especially over the last year. I believe that at  this time I can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office – from the nation’s governors to Congressional seats  and the Presidency. We need to continue to actively and aggressively help those  who will stop the “fundamental transformation” of our nation and instead seek  the restoration of our greatness, our goodness and our constitutional republic  based on the rule of law.

From the bottom of my heart I thank those who have supported me and defended  my record throughout the years, and encouraged me to run for President. Know  that by working together we can bring this country back – and as I’ve always  said, one doesn’t need a title to help do it.

I will continue driving the discussion for freedom and free markets,  including in the race for President where our candidates must embrace immediate  action toward energy independence through domestic resource developments of  conventional energy sources, along with renewables. We must reduce tax burdens and onerous regulations that kill American industry, and our candidates must  always push to minimize government to strengthen the economy and allow the  private sector to create jobs. 

Those will be our priorities so Americans can be confident that a smaller, smarter government that is truly of the people, by the people, and for the people can better serve this most exceptional  nation.

In the coming weeks I will help coordinate strategies to assist in replacing  the President, re-taking the Senate, and maintaining the House.

Thank you again for all your support. Let’s unite to restore this country! 

God bless America.

- Sarah Palin”
