Palin endorses Tipton

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has again jumped into the race for 3rd Congressional District in Colorado, endorsing Republican challenger Scott Tipton.

Palin endorsed Tipton on her web page.

The page is aimed at ginning up opposition to 20 Democrat representatives who voted for health care legislation championed by President Obama, despite hailing from districts carried by the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008.

One of those is Colorado’s 3rd, which is represented by John Salazar, a Democrat from Manassa.

“Now we can vote against them,” the website says.

The Salazar campaign said the endorsement was unimpressive.

“What else could Palin do? Especially when her first choice, Bob McConnell, didn’t win the primary,” Salazar spokeswoman Tara Trujillo said. “She had no choice but to support the next guy in line.”

In addition to Tipton, SarahPAC, Palin’s political-action committee endorsed Cory Gardner in Colorado’s 4th District.
