Two Palin-backed candidates lose
Advertisements [?]
Source: The Hill

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) is on a bit of a losing streak.

One of the candidates Palin backed in Tuesday's primaries lost big Washington Senate candidate Clint Didier (R). Another Wyoming gubernatorial hopeful Rita Meyer (R) conceded defeat early Wednesday morning to rival Matthew Mead, who won by some 700 votes.

Given former Rep. Nathan Deal's defeat of Karen Handel in Georgia's Republican runoff for governor, Rep. Todd Tiahrt's loss in the GOP Senate primary in Kansas and Tennessee congressional candidate CeCe Heil's (R) loss, Palin is 0 for 5 so far in August.

It's a losing streak likely to be broken next week when Arizona holds its primary Palin has endorsed her 2008 ticket-mate, Sen. John McCain (R), over former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R).
