On Instagram and in an interview with Good Morning America, former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin congratulates Harris and offers some advice on how to navigate the remainder of the presidential campaign. Palin, who posted the message with an image of her and Geraldine Ferraro – the only other woman to run on a major-party presidential ticket as the vice presidential nominee – suggests that Harris should, “trust no one new,” “fight mightily to keep your own team with you,” “don’t get muzzled,” and “don’t forget the women who came before you.” She also urges Harris to, “stay connected with America as you smile and ignore deceptive ‘handlers’ trying to change you.” On Good Morning America, Palin says: “I would like to think that both Geraldine Ferraro and I, in our respective parties, we were able to kind of bust down some doors and show some American voters who perhaps were hesitant to believe that women are capable of doing a whole lot of things all at once…we were able to prove that.”
