Palin records robocall for Fiorina

Burbank, California (CNN) - Sarah Palin recorded a robocall that went out to voters in the last few days on behalf of California Republican Senatorial candidate Carly Fiorina, a spokeswoman for Fiorina's campaign confirms to CNN. In the call Palin said she wants to "….help get our country back on track" by supporting Fiorina.

Palin's endorsement of Fiorina last month had irked some Tea Party activists in the state who backed state assemblyman Chuck DeVore. Fiorina has been attending some Tea Party meetings in the last few weeks trying to build up her support among that group.

In a speech to the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List last month Palin defended her endorsement. "Some wanting to accuse her of being a RINO (Republican In Name Only), I say no, no. There in the deep blue California, she is unabashedly pro-life, and all those other common sense conservative things that she stands for. She's the real deal. And I appreciate you, too, being bold enough and strong enough to take a stand in that race and to take a stand in so many of these races across the country," Palin said.

DeVore's campaign reacted to the call said "Chuck DeVore doesn't do robocalls, given his opposition to things are, well, illegal. A pity Carly Fiorina doesn't feel the same way. But then, she usually doesn't."

Fiorina campaign spokeswoman Amy Thoma told CNN the Palin call is legal because it is involving a federal race-not a state one which does not allow such calls.

    Ever wonder why you OBAMA SUPPORTERS are so scared of Palin. It is not ignorance alone that has brought you trembling to your knees but the fact that you know your man of change can not, "Walk on Water". In fact he is a destroyer instead of a builder. What this country now needs is a SARAH PALIN. She like HARRY S. TRUMAN will stand toe to toe with anyone and she will clean the White House out of it's hyprocrites. This country needs clensing bad. Right from the ones that enter the country illegally. YOU PEOPLE – Call these people immirgrants when they are only nothing but criminals breaking our laws even before they're two steps into this country. YOU AND OBAMA WANT TO AWARD THEM BY GRANTING THEM AMNESTY. THE ONLY REASON IS WHY: SO OBAMA AND LIKE CAN HAVE MORE VOTES. This is not going to fly with us true American Patroits.

    I pity anyone who thinks an endorsement from "Ms. Drill baby drill" Sarah Palin would improve their popularity or public standing. She really must be desperate to include a bone-head like Sarah Palin in her campaign.
