Palin Endorses Orrin Hatch
(KUTV) Sarah Palin is getting involved in Utah politics - officially endorsing Senator Orrin Hatch.
“I think a little tiny endorsement from me just kind of just helps shift a little more of that momentum to give a little attention,” said Palin.
Palin made the pro-Hatch announcement last night on her website.
She calls hatch "part of the one percent of national politicians who I think should be re-elected."
Palin says the Senate will benefit from Hatch's seniority and from his record of casting conservative votes.
Hatch faces challenger Dan Liljenquist, who earlier this year forced Hatch into his first primary since 1976. The new primary takes place on June 26th.
