CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Sarah Palin incorrectly calls Alaska's
Kodiak Island the largest island in America in a Facebook post endorsing a Senate candidate in New Hampshire.
The Big Island of Hawaii is about 440 square miles larger than Kodiak, where Palin and her family were headed Monday.
In endorsing Republican candidate Kelly Ayotte, Palin also strayed a bit from the facts in praising her for having
"won" a case before the U.S. Supreme Court.
As state attorney general, Ayotte defended a law requiring
parental notification for teenagers seeking abortions. But it was repealed after the U.S. Supreme Court sent it back to a lower court.
Ayotte is among seven candidates seeking the GOP nomination for the seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Judd Gregg. Rep. Paul Hodes is unopposed in the Democratic primary.
