Washington (CNN) - Sarah Palin marked the one-year anniversary of President Obama's signing of the stimulus bill by urging followers Wednesday to donate money to a former MTV reality star.
Wisconsin Republican Sean Duffy is running in a primary where the winner will earn the right to challenge powerful House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey, a Democrat.
Obey introduced the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, legislation that is also known as the stimulus bill.
"In this election year, we'll see many darling Davids take on entrenched Goliaths," Palin wrote in a Facebook post Wednesday morning. "Just one of these many brave souls is a northern Wisconsin patriot named Sean Duffy."
While never mentioning Obey by name, Palin alludes to him as "a liberal Goliath who's been in Congress over 40 years now."
"Hope lies in draining the swamp in D.C. and sending Commonsense Conservatives to Washington who understand the need for fiscal restraint," Palin wrote.
Before facing off against Obey, Duffy will have to beat candidate Dan Mielke in the Republican primary.
Duffy is serving his fourth term as district attorney for Ashland County. He became known nationally for appearing as a cast member on MTV's 'The Real World.'
