(CNN) – For a lot of Republicans, an endorsement from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is the gold standard of conservative street cred.
West Virginia Republican Senate candidate John Raese received such a nod this morning, except her endorsement was for a Senate seat in … Pennsylvania.
In a now-deleted tweet, Palin wrote, "Pennsylvania:makes sense 2 send GOP 2 DC 2 avoid PA economic disaster that will occur under Obama/Pelosi Cap & Tax scheme;workers need Raese."
She then quickly took the tweet down and updated with, "PA & WV: makes sense 2 send GOP 2 DC 2 avoid economic disaster that will occur under Obama/Pelosi Cap & Tax scheme;workers need Raese."
Pennsylvania, however, does border Raese's home state, and has its own tight race for Senate between Democrat Joe Sestak and Republican Pat Toomey. Palin has not officially endorsed in that race.
