There are many so called "experts" out there who have already decided Governor Palin is not going to run for President in 2012.I think they have forgotten that she is not a typical politician; she does things her way and in her own timing.Just because she has not done some of the "normal" groundwork for a run does not mean she has ruled it out.In fact, I have seen and read on several occasions where she has said she would consider a run if it was right for her family and right for the nation. So don't let those voicing such opinions discourage you, keep pressing forward until our goal of having Governor Palin as our nominee comes to fruition.

Rachelle Friberg is a San Diego girl and a patriotic American at heart!She graduated from San Diego State University in 2005 where she studied English and Journalism. She also has a Master’s Degree in English. Prior to the 2008 Presidential Election, she was never really into politics. Rachelle voted, but that was about it. The election of 2008 changed everything for her. When Senator John McCainselected Governor Sarah Palin, she immediately viewed her as a role model, a true modern-day feminist. Governor Palin is the epitome of this female: strong, sincere, classy, intelligent and graceful. Rachelle says, "I have heard individuals describe her as a modern-dayMargaret Thatcher or Ronald Reagan."She has inspired Rachelle to get involved politically.
Rachelle began to look at politics with a fresh perspective, and she found that she could not get enough of it. Soon after the election, she created her blog, Conservative Girl with a Voice:http://www.conservativegirlwithavoice.com/.She became involved with the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee as the San Diego Organizer.She put her background in journalism to work by becoming a political correspondent for a variety of radio shows around the U.S. Furthermore, Rachelle is also co-host of The People's Post Livehttp://www.blogtalkradio.com/thepeoplespost-live, a political radio show that helps to promote Governor Palin and spread the conservative message, and she writes for the Palin Twibe and the Sarah Palin Internet Coalition.Recently, she was asked to begin writing for Smart Girl Politics and Smart Girl Nation.Radio Talk Show Host and Palin Supporter Tammy Bruce has featured her blog on her site.Rachelle is also helping her good friend, former Conservative talk radio host and great friend of the Palin family,Eddie Burke, with the press aspect for his campaign for Alaska's lieutenant governor.
In her spare time—when not working at La Jolla High School with her dad, a teacher, and immersed in all things politics—she loves to spend time with her family, friends, and herMalitichon, Beau.Rachelle also loves spending time in the outdoors at her family's cabin in the Sierra Nevadas hiking, swimming, sailing, fishing, and kayaking. She is an outdoors girl and a sports lover.You may contact Rachelle at CA-SDG@2012DraftSarahCommittee.com.
