Palin Sticks Her Nose Into Wisconsin Supreme Court Race

Somewhere in Wisconsin, union organizers are dancing a little jig.

Capitalizing on the rare buzz around a state Supreme Court race, Sarah Palin has endorsed an incumbent conservative justice in Wisconsin.

“Wisconsin, please remember to vote for Justice Prosser on April 5,” Palin tweeted, urging her supporters to go to Justice David Prosser’s reelection website.

As the story further notes, “Prosser’s campaign told the Associated Press that it did not seek Palin’s endorsement.” Probably because they have some sort of interest in winning.

Palin gets the liberal base riled up, and especially in non-red states an endorsement from her isn’t the kick in the pants Republican candidates want (see O’Donnell, Christine).
