Palin Records Calls Urging Virginians To Vote

Via Mel Bryant at C4P

According to CNN, Governor Palin is making robocalls for the governor's race in Viriginia. From CNN's 'Political Ticker' blog:
Less than 48 hours before voters head to the polls to elect a new governor, several Virginians reported receiving robocalls on Sunday from the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, urging them to “vote for Sarah’s principles” on Tuesday.


“Virginia, hello, this is Sarah Palin calling to urge you to go to the polls Tuesday and vote [to share our] principles,” the former Alaska governor says in the call, which was provided to CNN by one Democrat who recorded it. “The eyes of America will be on Virginia and make no mistake about it, every vote counts. So don’t take anything for granted, vote your values on Tuesday, and urge your friends and family to vote, too.”

Meg Stapleton, a spokeswoman for Palin, confirmed the authenticity of the calls.

The Washington Post reports
Tucker Martin, a spokesman for Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell, said Palin's calls were not being made at the request of the campaign or the Republican Party of Virginia. He said the campaign had no firsthand knowledge of the calls.
The Post does go on to emphasize
McDonnell epeatedly and personally asked Palin for help this summer, but by late August Palin learned that the McDonnell campaign no longer wanted her assistance, Stapleton told us a few weeks ago.
