Sarah Palin has endorsed Taylor Griffin in the Republican primary for North Carolina's 3rd congressional district. Griffin announced the endorsement on his campaign website:
“I am incredibly honored to receive the endorsement of Governor Sarah and Todd Palin. I consider Governor Palin to be the epitome of a principled conservative and her endorsement reinforces my message that I will give Eastern North Carolina the conservative representation we deserve.” Griffin said after receiving the news of the endorsement.
Griffin is challenging incumbent Republican Walter B. Jones, who has emerged as an anti-war critic of his own party's foreign policy.
North Carolina will hold its primary on May 6.
