Meyer is battling three other Republican candidates for the party's nomination. Wyoming's primaries will be held on August 17.
"Voters know that Rita has a unique blend of steel magnolia and mama grizzly," Palin wrote on her Facebook page. "Her true grit has not escaped the eye of other Americans who know that at every level of political office we all benefit with commonsense constitutional conservatives in service."
Democratic Gov. Dave Freudenthal announced in March that he would not seek a third term in office. Both the Rothenberg Political Report and the Cook Political Report, two of the top non-partisan political handicappers, indicate that Republicans have a strong likelihood of picking up the governorship in November.
