Sarah Palin endorses Obey challenger Duffy


MADISON (AP) -- Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is getting involved in a Wisconsin congressional race.

Palin on Wednesday announced that she was endorsing fellow Republican Sean Duffy in his race against Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Dave Obey.

Palin made the announcement on her Facebook page.

She calls Duffy a "brave soul" and a "daring David" who is taking on a "liberal Goliath."

Obey has been in Congress representing Wisconsin's 7th Congressional District since 1969. The 37-year-old Duffy has been the Ashland County district attorney since 2002, a professional lumberjack and a former cast member on the 1997 MTV reality show "The Real World Boston."

Palin urged people to donate to Duffy's campaign in her message.
