During a surprise appearance on Sean Hannity's radio show Thursday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed Delaware U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell.

O'Donnell, backed by the Tea Party Express, is running in a tough primary against moderate Republican Rep. Mike Castle. The primary is on Tuesday.

Earlier, Palin re-tweeted an endorsement of O'Donnell first sent out by conservative radio host Tammy Bruce, a move which did not constitute an official Palin endorsement, but which increased speculation that Palin's backing may be imminent.

A tweet sent out by Sean Hannity Thursday afternoon, tipped off many reporters that the endorsement was now official. As Hannity tweeted:
"Thanks @SarahPalinUSA for the last minute call in. Endorsement of Christine O'Donnell was an exclusive. Said she hadn't told Christine yet."
Shortly after Hannity's tweet, Christine O'Donnell tweeted back,
@sarahpalinusa Thank you for support on @SeanHannity today! #tcot #conservative #DESEN #teaparty
She also tweeted,

Just got Gov. Palin's endorsement! Thank you for your prayers!

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.

The Tea Party did the right thing supporting O'donnell. If the RNC doesn't agree with this, it could bring serious division within the republican party. United we stand, divided we fall>

Delaware needs this kind of conservative. Castle is so liberal, he may as well be Democrat. Mike Castle no longer serves the people of Delaware, he is serving himself. Delawareans, please protect yourselves by voting for Christine on September 14. You won't be sorry.

Another vacant, pretty, bobble head Republicant, against a woman's right to choose, advocate for abstinence (cause that's worked out real well for Caribou Barbie), and even 'self abstinence'. Yeah, that'll solve our economic and national issues, Christine, let's spend less time masturbating, and more time manipulating! What a joke, just like Sharron Angle, Jan Brewer, Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin....if this is the best this country can do in the way of 'intelligent' moderate female candidates, WE ARE ALL IN TROUBLE!

A twitter is not exactly a resounding endorsement of a candidate. Sarah probably only did that because this candidate would not PAY her $100,000 APPEARANCE FEE! The republican tea party is running out of cash because Sarah and Glenn Beck have it all now, so she only tweets for those people that cannot PAY HER FEE!!!!
