It was big week for endorsements in 2016 politics. Sarah Palin, Jerry Falwell Jr. and John Wayne's daughter came out for Donald Trump. Glenn Beck will be campaigning for Ted Cruz in Iowa tomorrow. Three New Hampshire newspapers gave the nod to John Kasich, who polls show is on the rise in that state.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton won the Human Rights Campaign's approval, but Bernie Sanders disputed the group's decision, saying he's done more for gay rights than Clinton.
