Palin makes more endorsements


Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) has endorsed eight more GOP candidates on her Facebook page in the past week, including four today. On Oct. 21, Palin put her social-networking support behind Idaho Gov. Butch Otter (who's running for re-election), Sean Bielat (who's challenging Rep. Barney Frank in Massachusetts), Stephen Fincher (running for an open congressional seat in Tennessee), and Randy Hultgren (who's challenging Rep. Bill Foster in Illinois).

And today, she backed Dick Muri (challenging Rep. Adam Smith in Washington state), Rob Steele (taking on Rep. John Dingell in Michigan), Ilario Pantano (facing off against Rep. Mike McIntyre in North Carolina), and Chuck Wilkerson (who's challenging Rep. Henry Waxman in California).

Strikingly, fewer than half of these contests are competitive -- Fincher's race in Tennessee, McIntyre vs. Pantano in North Carolina, Foster vs. Hultgren in Illinois.
