Sarah Palin endorses Pantano

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Former Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin has endorsed Republican Congressional Candidate Ilario Pantano on her Facebook page.

Palin posted the following Tuesday morning.

"Ilario Pantano is another dedicated patriot running for Congress this year. Ilario first swore an oath to defend the Constitution as a 17-year-old Marine.  Today, he needs your help to bring common sense back to Washington.  The Republicans have carried this congressional district in the last three presidential elections (including '08), but the current representative votes with Pelosi and the Democrats 90% of the time.  We can win this seat and send a decorated Marine to Congress who will be a strong voice for veterans and active-duty military.  Please visit Ilario Pantano's website at and follow him on Facebook and Twitter," Sarah Palin wrote.
