Republican U.S. Senate candidate Clint Didier met with Sarah Palin today in the Tri-Cities before his speech to tea party members that voted to unofficially support him in Vancouver.
The former Alaska governor, who endorsed Didier before GOP star Dino Rossi entered the race, has an uncle and aunt in the Tri-Cities who have long known Didier.
Didier told the tea party groups he had heard a false rumor Palin tried to talk him into quitting the race.
“On the contrary,” he said, “she’s saying ‘Forge ahead.'”
And he will stay in, he said: “I get more determined by the day.”
