Sarah Palin - Bear Skin

SACRAMENTO, Calif.—Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has not yet endorsed a candidate in California’s race for governor, but she has made clear her preference for Republican Meg Whitman.

Appearing Friday at a forum hosted by the Sacramento Metro Chamber, Palin criticized California’s recently approved budget as an “unrealistic” attempt to close a $19 billion deficit.

Palin said the next governor “will have to make tough choices about spending cuts, and certainly—she—will be working in a bipartisan manner.” Palin emphasized the word “she” in her delivery.

It’s unclear whether Whitman, who would be California’s first female governor, would embrace a Palin endorsement.

She is not attending a Republican National Committee rally Saturday where Palin will be the headline speaker, saying she has campaign events elsewhere that day.
