“Thank you, sir. It is an honor to be named your ‘‘Conservative of the Year.’”
That’s how Governor Sarah Palin began her December 12, 2008 interview with John Gizzi, the Political Editor of Human Events, about her historic candidacy as the Republican vice presidential nominee as well as about current issues and her future.
Governor Sarah Palin is the first woman governor of Alaska and made history on December 4, 2006 when she took office as that state’s 11th governor. Prior to being elected governor of Alaska, she served as Mayor of Wasilla from 1996-2002, President of the Alaska Conference of Mayors and as a City Council member from1992-1996.
As a testament to her enduring popularity, Senator Saxby Chambliss attributed his surprisingly solid 15-point victory in the December 2, 2008 Georgia Senate runoff to Gov. Palin. “I can’t overstate the impact she had down here,” he said after she helped his campaign “peak” with four hugely attended election-eve rallies. Gov. Palin was the second biggest phenomenon of the 2008 election cycle, behind only our new President Barack Obama.
