Palin's PAC Revs Up Fundraising


Sarah Palin's political action committee, SarahPAC, has turned up its fundraising efforts and is asking supporters for donations to help the former vice presidential candidate work "every day to reform government in Alaska and fight for the conservative values we all cherish."

In an email to Palin supporters, SarahPAC said it "supports leaders and candidates that share Governor Palin's vision of government reform, law taxes (sic), and personal freedom." The email announced that Palin will be traveling the country in support of these like like-minded candidates.

"But we can't do it without you," the email read, asking: "will you join Governor Palin's team and make a contribution so SarahPAC...can support the Governor's efforts to reform government and help elect leaders who share our conservative values?"

The email detailed Governor Palin's political activities since she and Senator John McCain were defeated in their 2008 presidential bid.

It said that Palin is praying for families in economic distress and notes that she recently proposed legislation that she hopes will provide relief for Alaskans struggling to heat their homes and generate the power they need.

Palin also apparently traveled to western Alaska with Christian evangelist Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham.

Thrust from near obscurity to national fame during the 2008 presidential campaign, the former vice presidential nominee seems to be maintaining her political ambitions.

"Governor Palin believes our brightest days are ahead and she is honored to have you by her side," the email said.

CORRECTION: We mistakenly said the "late" Billy Graham in an original version of this post.
