Republican U.S. Senate candidate Clint Didier got a big boost Thursday from former Alaska Gov. and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
Palin lavished praise on Didier, the former pro football player turned Pasco alfalfa farmer, on her Twitter and Facebook pages, in an apparent primary endorsement.
That would seem to anoint Didier the favorite for the tea party vote in Washington State.
It will no doubt complicate Dino Rossi’s decision on whether to jump into the race against incumbent Sen. Patty Murray.
