Carly Fiorina says Sarah Palin is qualified to be president
U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina said Monday that Sarah Palin has the credentials to be president.
"I certainly think she's qualified to be president of the United States," Fiorina said in an interview on CNN's "The Situation Room."
Fiorina's comments come as she launches a new ad campaign aimed at attracting independent voters in her quest to unseat Sen. Barbara Boxer.
Fiorina received Palin's endorsement in the Republican primary but announced last week that she was skipping Palin's Oct. 16 visit to California. A recent Field Poll showed association with Palin may be bad for a candidate's political health, at least in California.
