"We get America back on track by sending true conservatives like Sarah Steelman to Washington," Palin says in the ad. "Sarah Steelman earned her reputation as a conservative maverick blocking pork-barrel spending and Sarah will fight for a constitutional amendment that forces Congress to balance the budget."
