Sarah Palin has ended her year-long tease of American conservatives by finally announcing she will not be joining the presidential race.
In a letter to supporters, Palin said: “After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for president of the United States.
“When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.”
Her departure clarifies the Republican field, with no other candidates likely to join the race at this late stage. The Republican contest is shaping up basically as between former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and Texas governor Rick Perry, in spite of a recent surge in support for businessman Herman Cain.
