(CNN) – It hasn't been the greatest of months for Sarah Palin when it comes to her political star power.
The two candidates Palin backed in Tuesday's primaries lost their bids, making the former Alaska governor 0-for-5 when it comes to endorsements this month.
In Washington State, Palin had backed Tea Party activist Clint Didier in his bid for the Senate over businessman Dino Rossi, the favorite of national Republicans.
In making her endorsement of Didier last May, Palin said the Tea Party favorite had "inspired" her, and hailed him as a "patriot running for U.S. Senate to serve his state & our country for all the right reasons!"
Palin went on to record a robocall for Didier, telling voters that "unlike establishment candidates who just talk about lower taxes, Clint has signed a pledge to do so."
But Rossi easily beat Diddier in Tuesday's primary, besting the former NFL player by more than 20 points.
Palin's candidate also lost out in the Wyoming gubernatorial primary on Tuesday. There, the former vice presidential nominee backed what she referred to as a "Mama Grizzly," State Auditor Rita Meyer.
"Voters know that Rita has a unique blend of steel magnolia and mama grizzly," Palin wrote on her Facebook page in July.
Meyer ultimately lost her bid to U.S. Attorney Matthew Mead by fewer than 1,000 votes, according to the Wyoming secretary of state.
Ultimately, Palin put little effort into either race beyond a few sentences expressing support on her Facebook and Twitter pages. Still, the endorsements made big news in the local races and were often touted by the campaigns.
But Palin's 0-2 showing follows a bigger disappointment last Tuesday, when her hand-picked gubernatorial candidate in Georgia, Karen Handel, lost to fellow Republican Nathan Deal in a close election.
Palin had put most of her efforts into that race, appearing with Handel at campaign rally just hours before the vote.
Palin-backed candidates Rep. Todd Tiahrt, who was vying for Senate in Kansas - and Tennessee congressional candidate CeCe Heil also lost their bids earlier this month.
Palin's next tests come Tuesday when Alaska, Arizona and Florida hold their primary votes. In Alaska, Palin has backed Joe Miller in his long shot bid to defeat Republican Senate incumbent Lisa Murkowski. In Arizona, Palin went with Sen. John McCain in his Senate primary bid against former Rep. J.D. Hayworth. And in Florida, Palin has picked Republican candidate Marco Rubio in that state's Senate race.
UPDATE: Two congressional candidates Palin endorsed in Washington did advance in Tuesday's primaries: John Koster in Washington's 2nd District and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers in Washington's 5th District. Koster was the runner up in Washington's open primary to incumbent Democrat Rick Larsen, meaning the two will face off in November. McMorris Rodgers did not face a serious opponent.
She is ahead of Obama in important endorsements and she is not even in government! Some of her candidates had no name recognition and were not expected to win–try again to trash her, CNN....
Americans with any ounce of sense would know to never follow Sarah Palin's endorsements, nor encourage the Tea Party ideology!
This is truly amazing–the political system at its "best-worst". Wow, the GOP need to give up the ghost! lol
People are finally wising up to Palin knowing she and her husband quit their jobs to pander them for money. There is no man or woman out there who has a family is willing to take care of another man and his family, that's why we all hate welfare. This whole Palin clan have used the political spot light for personal gains while Sarah touts about family values, what frauds.
She's going to have to lower her asking price for endorsements, maybe as low as $20,000 or $15,000 per endorsement.
"In making her endorsement of Didier last May, Palin said the Tea Party favorite had "inspired" her, and hailed him as a "patriot running for U.S. Senate to serve his state & our country for all the right reasons..."
Racism..., Zionism..., Jingoism..., Religious bias..., Tax breaks for the rich only..., scaming hard working people with "snake oil" positions.
Now that's the new Conservative "American Patriot".
Sarah Palin needs to go home, pour herself a glass of lemonade, sit on the front porch and wave to the Russians!
Hmmm... I'd say it is a MUCH WORSE month for Obama, Pelosi and Bloomberg: our radical muslim sympathizers. We don't see much coverage of that on CNN and other state-controlled media, surprise, surprise. BUT, anything that can possibly diminish Palin (who is not an office holder or even a candidate for anything yet) is "Headline News"!!
She still has a better record then Obama.
ahhh, how sad..NOT..now, where to put these thumbs?
I sincerely hope that this is the beginning of the end of life with Palin. I think we all hoped that she would become irrelevant at some point.
0 for 5? Doesn't that make her on par w/ Obama?
It just may be that people are catching on to this screwball. it seems that she is posion for anyone that she endorces. she is just alaskan trailor trash anyway.
She has the Medusssa stare. Everything she looks at turns to stone and crumbles away. She should look in a mirror.
It's going to be hilarious when candidates begin avoiding this nutcase and she finally goes away into obscurity.
That day won't come soon enough for me
Losing is nothing new for Palin. She should get used to it.
Sarah is on minute 13 of her 15 minutes of political relevancy...good riddance
Palin should be sending the media a monthly stipend because it is them alone that is keeping her in the news and has made her rich.
She is uninformed, and for the lack of a better word, dumb. She is leading the charge of "dumbing down America." Please Sarah run for President. Your candidacy will do two things: 1) make Romney and who ever else seeking the Republican candidacy spend a lot of money and time 2) if you manage to gain the nomination (which I doubt) , you can debate, Harvard educated, Barack Obama.! Please Sarah run! But you wont. You dont have it in you.
This loser knows how to pick losers just like herself.Lets call it 5 for 5 for the teahag.
Wow, it looks like even the tea-baggers are learning what 50% of this country has known since 2008; that Palin's a complete and utter moron. I guess her looooooong 15 minutes of fame are just about up.
Palin is 0 for 5....imagine that. There is hope for this country after all.
Any bad news for Pail is good news for the USA!!!
Oh please Sarah, Keep this streak going! Lets have a replacement for McCain! Please try your hardest and lose the next three tea bagger candidates chances as well!
Keep it up Sarah, you are doing perfect!!
She is vacuous.
is this really a surprise to anyone? the only people that seem to think that Sarah Palin has any impact on serious politics are the editors at CNN
Why would any candidate want the endorsement of a person who the vast majority of the electorate doesn't like? Did these candidates expect a different outcome? Crazy!!
