HarpBlaster.com News Wire

WASILLA, Alaska — Gov. Sarah Palin announced today that she will not seek a second term as Governor of the State of Alaska and will relegate the power of governor to Lieutenant Gov. Sean Parnell in order to serve Alaska’s best interests. Lieutenant General Craig Campbell will move into Parnell’s current role.

Parnell will be sworn into office July 25.

“People who know me know that besides faith and family, nothing’s more important to me than our beloved Alaska,” Palin said. “Serving her people is the greatest honor I could imagine.

“I am determined to take the right path for Alaska even though it is not the easiest path,” Palin said. “Once I decided not to run for re-election, I also felt that to embrace the conventional ‘Lame Duck’ status in this particular climate would just be another dose of ‘politics as usual,’ something I campaigned against and will always oppose.”
