Palin endorses McDaniel in Mississippi race for U.S. Senate

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has endorsed Chris McDaniel in his bid for Sen. Thad Cochran's seat. 

"Chris McDaniel has been a champion of limited government, free enterprise, civic participation, reduced taxes, a strong national defense, and a return to the original checks and balances of the Constitution as a state senator," Palin, the former governor of Alaska, says in the caption of a photo fluttering around Twitter.. The Mississippi Senate race is a clear fight for the future of the Republican Party against the entrenched interests of the permanent political class in D.C."
