While Sarah Palin (and Tom McClintock) gathered this weekend at separate political events in Orange County, Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina were campaigning on opposite ends of the state.
Whitman and Fiorina cited scheduling conflicts as the reason they could not attend, according to the L.A. Times. Yea, sure.
As the Times points out: “The candidates also had political rationales for avoiding a joint appearance. A recent Field poll showed that nearly two-thirds of independent voters in California view Palin unfavorably — and Republicans here need the support of independents to overcome Democrats’ double-digit voter registration edge.”
As I’ve said all along, most of us are “in the middle” or centrists.
