ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Sarah Palin is backing Republican Tom

Emmer in the Minnesota governor's race.

The former Alaska governor posted on Twitter and then Facebook

on Thursday that she is endorsing Emmer, who faces off Friday with

fellow state Rep. Marty Seifert for the state GOP endorsement.

Both Emmer and Seifert have promised to drop out if the other

wins the party's backing.

Emmer attended a reception with Palin when she was in town

earlier this month to raise money for U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann.
