Sarah Palin says she will not run for president; Republican field might be set

Wednesday, October 5, 2011 | 6:51 p.m. CDT

WASHINGTON — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she will not run for president. Her announcement Wednesday left little doubt that the eventual Republican nominee will come from the current field of contenders.

Palin said in a statement that she and her husband Todd "devote ourselves to God, family and country." She said her decision maintains that order.

Palin was the 2008 Republican Party nominee for vice president. She often hinted that she might run for president in 2012 but never committed herself.

Her announcement came one day after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he would not run. The Republican field now includes former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
