Sarah Palin on Allen West: You Betcha!

Today on her Facebook page, Sarah Palin gave a public endorsement to South Florida congressional candidate Allen West. Said the former Alaskan governor and Republican VP candidate:

Allen's personal story is a testament to the commonsense conservative belief that our nation's greatness is rooted in freedom, because with freedom comes equal opportunity, and that, coupled with hard work, leads to success. Allen is a small government fiscal conservative running against a leftwing ideologue (Congressman Ron Klein) who's marched to the beat of Nancy Pelosi on every issue from cap-and-tax to the stimulus, TARP, and, of course, Obamacare.
A statement from the West campaign after the jump.

"I am deeply honored and humbled to have secured [sic] Governor Palin's endorsement for our Congressional campaign," West said. "The hard work of our supporters is being recognized both here in the Twenty-Second District as well as across America."
Of course, both West and Palin are icons of the tea party movement, so this endorsement was something of a formality. Here's video from a recent screech speech Palin gave at a tea party rally in Southern Nevada.
