By the time she gets to Phoenix, he'll be ... raring to go. Sarah Palin is headed to Arizona on Friday in an effort to rev up the conservative base for Sen. John McCain, the man who brought her to political prominence by naming the then-Alaska governor as his vice presidential running mate in 2008.
To get her game face ready, Palin ripped three Arizona Democratic lawmakers: Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick, Harry Mitchell, and Gabrielle Giffords, The Hill
newspaper said. "We're going to fire them and send them back to the private sector, which has been shrinking thanks to their destructive government-growing policies," Palin wrote on her Facebook page before her departure for Arizona.
McCain, who is running for re-election, is in a Republican Senate primary fight against former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth, a conservative who is courting members of the Tea Party movement.
About 1,000 people are expected at the Pima County Fairgrounds on Friday for a McCain rally, featuring Palin. She is also scheduled to speak at a second McCain event in Mesa on Saturday.
