Sarah Palin announced two more endorsements for candidates Monday via Facebook. The governor is giving her support to Karen Handel in the race for governor in Georgia and Ann Marie Buerkle for Congress in NY-25:
Getting a Handel in Georgia benefits the state and, ultimately, the entire country
I’m proud to lend my support to a great commonsense conservative woman running for Governor this year in the Peach State. My recent visit back to this beautiful area allowed me to meet more of the patriotic Americans who call Georgia home and who are ready for a reformer to help strengthen their families, businesses, state and, ultimately, our United States. Karen Handel is that reformer. Throughout her career in public office – from serving as Chairman of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners to Georgia’s Secretary of State – Karen has brought the common sense fiscal discipline and positive change in government that is needed now more than ever. Though considered an underdog candidate (more power to her!), this pro-life, pro-Constitutionalist with a can-do attitude and a record of fighting for ethics in government is ready to serve in the Governor’s Office. She’ll balance budgets and help spur Georgia’s economy. Her plan will contribute to America’s roadmap which can benefit all of us.
Please join me in supporting this good conservative reformer who will work tirelessly for the Peach State. You can visit Karen Handel’s website at www.karenhandel.com and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.

Ann Marie Buerkle for New York’s 25th District
I’m proud to endorse an Empire State leader who’s running to represent New York’s 25th Congressional District. Ann Marie Buerkle is a commonsense constitutional conservative and is willing to put it all on the line to help put our country on the right track. Ann Marie is a registered nurse who went back to college to earn her law degree at age 40, while at the same time serving her community on the Syracuse City Council. Since 1997, Ann Marie has served as an Assistant New York State Attorney General on behalf of Upstate Medical Center. If you want a expert who knows why we need to repeal and replace Obamacare, Ann Marie is that candidate. She is the daughter of hardworking immigrants who knows what makes this country great: our free market work ethic where anyone with a dream and the dedication to work hard for it can achieve success. Being a proud mother of six and grandmother of 11 gives this New York “mama grizzly” a wonderful incentive to work hard to make sure our country remains the same land of opportunity for future generations of Americans.
When I visited Central New York last year with my daughter Willow, I remember telling her that there must be something in the water in this region of the country to produce so many strong, independent, historic women leaders. The women’s movement in America has its roots in Seneca Falls, New York, and Ann Marie is among today’s strong women leaders.
Please join me in supporting this dedicated public servant by visiting her website at www.buerkleforcongress.com and following her on Facebook and Twitter.

NY-25 stretches from Syracuse to the northeastern suburbs of Rochester. Democrat Dan Maffei won the seat in 2008, but a bipartisan poll by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research and Public Opinion Strategies has listed NY-25 as one of the 60 most competitive Democratic-held congressional districts.
The Georgia gubernatorial race on the GOP side is a crowded one. Handel is the lone woman in a field of seven candidates. Only three are polling in double digits, however, and Handel is among them. The other two are state Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine and U.S. Congressman Nathan Deal. Deal was elected to the House in 1992 as a Democrat, switched parties to the GOP in 1995, then announced in March of this year that he would resign to run for Governor of Georgia.
