Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) has endorsed Oklahoma House Speaker T.W. Shannon (R) in his Senate primary against Rep. James Lankford (R-Okla.), giving him a potential boost with the conservative grassroots.
"We can also rest assured that T.W. will bring to D.C. the integrity and moral compass he acquired growing up attending Bethlehem Baptist Church and teaching Sunday School," she continued. "T.W. Shannon is exactly the kind of dynamic young conservative leader we need in Washington!"
Shannon has been positioning himself as the Tea Party candidate against Lankford, and the endorsement could help boost his profile and fundraising. Palin remains popular with some elements of the GOP grassroots.
