Sarah Palin, former Republican vice presidential candidate and a prominent voice of the right, has endorsed New Jersey U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan, his campaign announced Wednesday night.

Palin’s endorsement took aim at Newark Mayor Cory Booker, the Democratic candidate, who leads in polls. She said unemployment, taxes, and violent crime all have grown during Booker’s term in office.

  1. A Palin endorsement of a Republican candidate for office is as significant and meaningful as a Rush Limbaugh endorsement of a diet plan.
