Sarah Palin goes rogue or something, endorses Orrin Hatch
Sarah Palin weighed in on the Utah Senate race during an interview Tuesday night and took a side. But instead of rallying around the Republican tea party challenger, as she has in other primary campaigns, the former Alaska governor endorsed longtime senator Orrin Hatch.
“I want him to win,” Palin told Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, saying she joined with other conservatives “who would like to see Mr. Balanced Budget return to Washington.”
“I’m deeply honored by Governor Palin’s endorsement,” Hatch said in a statement early Wednesday morning. “There are few as committed to the cause of liberty and the ideals that have made this nation great as Sarah Palin.”
Did I read that right? Geez, the non-wingnuts will do anything to get elected as a Republican.
