WASILLA, ALASKA and CROFTON, MARYLAND – Today, Brian Murphy, Republican Candidate for Governor of Maryland, received the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin. In endorsing Murphy, Governor Palin acknowledges the national implications of Maryland’s Gubernatorial Race.
“I’m honored to endorse Brian Murphy for Governor of Maryland. Brian is a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment commonsense conservative and a firm believer in the free market and the cause for energy independence. As a former energy industry executive and current small business owner, Brian has the private sector experience that is so lacking in government today. He knows how to incentivize industry to get our economy moving again. Together with his running mate for lieutenant governor, Mike Ryman, Brian will provide Maryland with principled and results oriented leadership.

In response to Palin’s endorsement, Murphy issued the following statement:
“I am humbled and honored to receive Governor Palin’s endorsement. Governor Palin has served her city, her state, her country, and her party with distinction. Governor Palin has always been led by principle, conviction and character. I look forward to working with her as we unify the Republican Party in Maryland, and around the country, on its core principles. Governor Palin’s endorsement is an honor and a privilege,” said Murphy.
