Here's more evidence of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's popularity among her fellow Republicans: Jay Love, an GOP House candidate in Alabama, is featuring Palin (R) in a new television ad.

"I'm supporting John McCainJohn Sidney McCainTrump digs in on conspiracy theory over bin Laden raid At 97, Bob Dole is still fighting for his country Leadership matters: President's words and actions show he is unfit to lead our nation MORE and Sarah Palin," says Love in the spot. "My opponent isn't. I'll never sell out to the liberals."

The latest polls have shown a tight race, even though the district, currently held by retiring Rep. Terry Everett (R), tilts Republican.

UPDATE: Bright decried the ad and partisan politics in a statement.


"We've got to stop electing a party. The people of this district need a true representative who understands their issues and reflects their values."

"I signed a campaign pledge to run a positive, issues-based campaign. The people of this district know where I stand, and this ad is a misrepresentation.

"This is pure partisan politics, and we've got to rise above that."
