Palin endorses state senator for Radel seat

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is endorsing state Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto in the GOP primary to replace former Rep. Trey Radel (R-Fla.), who resigned in January.

The Palin endorsement indicates conservative division in the race, as businessman Curt Clawson has picked up the endorsement of the Tea Party Express.

State Rep. Paige Kreegel is also running in the GOP primary for the seat, which became open when Radel resigned after admitting to cocaine use.

“Lizbeth Benacquisto is a proven conservative with an unwavering commitment to the principles of our Founders and to the sanctity of life,” Palin said in a statement posted on her Facebook page.

Palin knocked Clawson, though not by name, declaring that she and “good folks supporting other candidates … [will] have to disagree on this one.”

    Candidates should be given a 24 hour grace period to renounce Sarah Palin’s endorsements. Her kiss of death simply should not be forced on anyone even Tea Party candidates.
