Speaking during an appearance on Fox Business Channel, Congressional candidate Doug Hoffman said he expects to be endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
The Saranac Lake accountant has Conservative and Tea Party support ahead of the September 14 Republican primary. Hoffman received an endorsement from the former vice presidential candidate last fall before a special election for New York’s 23rd Congressional District seat.
“Sarah has verbally told me she will endorse me,” he said. “I’m waiting for that to come though, and I hope it comes through soon.”
Hoffman says he hopes Palin will announce her endorsement before the primary election.
Inquiries sent to Palin’s handlers went unreturned Thursday.
