MADISONVILLE, Ky. (Legal Newsline) - Former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin is supporting Todd P'Pool for Kentucky Attorney General.

According to P'Pool's campaign, the former Alaska governor is endorsing the GOP candidate.

"I am extremely honored to announce the endorsement and support of one of America's great conservative voices and Constitutional conservatives, Gov. Sarah Palin," P'Pool said in a statement Friday.

"Her endorsement brings a level of energy and excitement to our race that is nearly impossible to match."

The former prosecutor faces Democratic incumbent Jack Conway in Tuesday's election.

P'Pool says Palin's record of not "going along to get along" is a trait he will seek to follow if elected.

"Gov. Palin has never been afraid to buck the establishment and the good old boy system," he said. "She knows that I will be an independent attorney general that will uphold conservative values and prosecute corruption without fear or favor."

P'Pool has been ramping up his campaign efforts in recent weeks, joined by supporters such as Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, former Gov. Mike Huckabee and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
