Palin Endorses John Willoughby, Snubs Civil Beat

An endorsement from Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor and Tea Party poster child, is one of the the highest-profile plugs a Republican candidate could possibly get — perhaps even more newsworthy than one from President Barack Obama.

So it's no small news that Palin endorsed John Willoughby's campaign for Hawaii's Second Congressional District seat. She also endorsed Scott Henderson, a candidate for Hawaii's Seventh House District.

But she didn't throw her weight behind incumbent Congressman Charles Djou, whose conservative platform seems to fit right in with Tea Party values.

And we'll never know why because she deleted our media request from her Facebook wall.
