"It’s clear who Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will be supporting when it comes to the presidential race, after all she is on the ticket. The bigger question is who will she vote for in the Senate race in her home state," writes ABC News' John Berman and Ursula Fahy in an August 31, 2008, post at Political Radar. Steven is currently under indictment "on seven counts of filing false financial disclosures."
According to Politico, Stevens endorsed Republican Presidential contender John McCain's pick of Palin as his running mate. See "Indicted Sen. Ted Stevens endorses Palin pick by McCain."
Berman and Fahy note that, "Embattled Republican Sen. Ted Stevens faces a tight race against popular Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich. And as of now, McCain campaign aides will not guarantee that she will endorse the senior Senator. Of course, perhaps more telling is that they won’t promise she won’t endorse him either.though the antithesis of reform, is an icon in Alaska politics."
