Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin noted that while it’s good Gov. Chris Christie won a mostly democratic state, she would not support him as a potential GOP presidential candidate in 2016.
“I would never put my faith and hope in any one politician,” Palin said, in her interview with NBC’s “Today” show.
Palin added that there is no Ronald Reagan on the political scene today, and despite his historic tax raises, Palin said she would support a candidate like him.
Interstingly, Reagan was a Rapublican able to attract traditionally Democratic voters like women and Hispanics, just as Christie did.
Still, while she may not support Christie, she didn’t dismiss his success in a Democratic state.
“Hey, New Jersey, a blue state, has a Republican governor,” Palin said. “Beats the alternative.”
Palin also defended Sen. Ted Cruz during the interview, arguing that his attempt to shutdown the government was a way to fulfill his promise to his constituents.
When pressed for an alternative plan to Obamacare, Palin merely stated that the new plan should involve a free-market approach and tort reform.
