Sarah Palin Stumps in California, Whitman and Fiorina Distance Themselves
Onetime Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin is in California this week, stumping for her fellow conservatives. The Tea Party-ing Palin will be at the Anaheim Marriott today, however "Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman and Senate candidate Carly Fiorina will not be among Palin’s so-called Mama Grizzlies on hand for the Republican National Committee’s Victory Rally," reports CBS.
Fiorina will be in El Dorado Hills today, while Whitman has not confirmed her Saturday schedule with the press. Having Palin as the celeb face of your election bid, however, isn't necessarily an asset. "Political observers are not surprised by the snubs because Palin’s endorsement could turn off some independent voters."
Tickets to the event run $25-$1000; Fiorina will reap the rewards, however, despite being absent, since proceeds from the rally are going to the Republican National Committee, explains the OC Register.
