Sarah Palin tries to save John McCain's political life (video)
Former U.S. Republican presidential candidate John McCain and his vice president pick Sarah Palin campaigned together Friday for the first time since losing the presidential race in 2008.
In 2008, McCain transformed Palin overnight from an obscure first-term Alaska governor into a national celebrity when he picked her as his vice presidential running mate. Now Palin is repaying the favor, putting her prestige on the line in an effort to help the four-term Arizona senator overcome his toughest re-election challenge ever scheduled for this November, writes Fox News today.
McCain is facing a primary challenge from former congressman and conservative talk-radio host J.D. Hayworth, who is a darling of the Tea Party, whose support McCain hopes Palin can undercut. Leaders of four of the largest Tea Party organizations in Arizona issued a joint press release earlier this month, pledging neutrality in the state's Republican primary.
