Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin has started a new political action committee — in what may be a move to build relationships leading up to a 2012 presidential run. The new SarahPAC appears ready to support candidates for Congress in the mid-term elections next year.
"SarahPac is a federally registered political action committee that supports Gov. Sarah Palin’s plans to build a better, stronger, and safer America in the 21st century," the new PAC announces on its web site.
"Gov. Sarah Palin believes all Americans must work together for the future, regardless of their party affiliation. Gov. Palin is the official chair of SarahPac, and its supporters are Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and those unaffiliated with any political party," the PAC indicates.
The PAC is "to building America’s future, supporting fresh ideas and candidates who share our vision for reform and innovation."
"SarahPAC believes America’s best days are ahead. Our country, founded on conservative principles and the fight for freedom, must confront the challenges of the 21st century with integrity, innovation, and determination," it says.
The political action committee’s web site indicates it will support the agenda Palin had as a vice-presidential candidate: energy independence and reform along with stronger economic programs and pro-life and pro-family values.
"SarahPac will support local and national candidates who share Gov. Palin’s ideas and goals for our country," it explains.
The PAC encourages people supporting it to stand up for their values as a new president takes over the country.
"As a new president takes office and begins to lead our country, Gov. Palin believes that every one of us has a duty and responsibility in this time of economic crisis and international challenge. Each one of us must step up to the plate, get involved in the spirit of renaissance and renewal that is critical to America’s success," it says.
"By supporting SarahPac, you will allow Gov. Palin to help find and create solutions for America’s most pressing problems," it says.
The PAC appears to define an agenda for Palin and the Republican Party that could serve as her main platform for a potential presidential bid.
"SarahPAC believes the Republican Party is at the threshold of an historic renaissance that will build a better future for all. Health care, education, and reform of government are among our key goals," it says.
The PAC web site features images of a smiling Sarah Palin along with an Alaska mountain vista and an image of Alaska overlayed on a map of the continental United States.
