Leaders from both political parties called on a Democratic candidate for New Hampshire's House to apologize yesterday for posting a death wish for Sarah Palin on Facebook.

Republican state Rep. D.J. Bettencourt said Democrat Keith Halloran of Rindge was responding to Bettencourt's post Tuesday about the plane crash that killed former Alaska senator Ted Stevens. Bettencourt said Halloran wrote: "Just wish Sarah and Levy were on board," an apparent reference to the former Alaska governor and her daughter's ex-boyfriend, Levi Johnston. 

Halloran wouldn't confirm he wrote the message. In a message sent to the Associated Press through Facebook, he said, "It's just a tempest in their Tea Pot."
