Palin rallies voters for McCain in Arizona

(CNN) - Sarah Palin spoke out Friday at a rally for Sen. John McCain, urging voters to support the senator in his re-election bid in Arizona.

The rally, in Tuscon, Arizona, was their first joint public appearance since they conceded the 2008 presidential election.

McCain faces a primary challenge from former Rep. J.D. Hayworth and has come under criticism for being too moderate on a variety of issues, including immigration. Several leading Tea Party activists in Arizona have decided not to endorse McCain or Hayworth, criticizing both of their records while serving in Congress.

The enthusiastic crowd greeted Palin with shouts of "Sarah, Sarah," as she, her husband Todd and McCain took the stage.

"Everybody here, supporting John McCain, we are all part of that Tea Party movement," Palin said. "I think he's gonna win this one."

    What I can't figure out is why McCain needs help from Palin. He can't really be in danger of losing the nomination, can he?

    Sarah Palin,one again has joined John McCain on the podium to call for his election. For the second time, it's for Govenor of Arizona. She was by his side for President and he lost. She's with him again, does this make him a possible loser again. She's been a loser and a quitter enough times in her own life, maybe it's rubbing off on him.People are already getting tired of seeing her but she keeps pushing to become famous and wealthy , however, she's becoming so "yesterday" that it won't be long and she will just fade off into the sunset."A consumation devoutly to be wished"
