Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Tuesday: “I’m proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for president.”
The announcement comes after two days of speculation that the 2008 Republican presidential nominee would back the New York businessman. It’s likely the biggest endorsement Trump has won at this point.
The buzz intensified when it was revealed that a Canadair Challenger twin-jet departed Anchorage for the Des Moines International Airport on Monday.
Palin is expected to appear at a rally with Trump at Iowa State University in Ames on Tuesday evening.
