Whitman, Fiorina decline Palin rally invite

Sarah Palin is coming to Anaheim to raise money for Republican candidates.But Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina will not be showing up for her rally.

It may not be surprising, considering a new field poll Wednesday shows 79 percent of California Democrats disapprove of Palin, and more than two thirds of independents feel the same.

Whitman and Fiorina need more than Republican votes to win their races for governor and the U.S. Senate.

Both candidates say they have other commitments on Oct. 16, when Palin will hold her rally.
