Sarah Palin on Wednesday endorsed former Oklahoma House speaker T.W. Shannon (R) for his state's open U.S. Senate seat.
Shannon is running against Rep. James Lankford and a number of other candidates in the Republican primary to replace Sen. Tom Coburn (R). The 36-year old has gotten some early buzz as the first African American to serve as House speaker in Oklahoma, but he remains an underdog, according to the most recent polls.
"T.W.s opponent has the backing of Beltway insiders, but T.W. has the passion and experience We the People need in Washington," Palin wrote on her Facebook page.
Conservative groups including the Club for Growth aren't big fans of Lankford, but Shannon so far hasn't drawn big-name tea party support.
Palin, whose endorsement was once about the most important thing a tea party candidate could get in a GOP primary, said earlier Thursday that she plans to unveil more endorsements in the coming months.

I think you may like this thread. I sure do.
A thread from a couple days ago if anyone is interested in reading the comments thereon:
Shannon is the rising star here in Oklahoma.
Go Sarah go! Go T.W. go! Take America back!
I posted to it and forgot all about it. Whoops!
If Lankford wins, Bridenstine should primary him in 2016.
