Palin pitches Fiorina as the best shot in the primary to stop former Rep. Tom Campbell, who currently leads in the polls: "Please consider that Carly is the conservative who has the potential to beat California's liberal senator, Barbara Boxer, in November.

The TPM Poll Average gives Campbell a lead of 28.7%, followed by Fiorina at 20.2%, and the even more conservative state Rep. Chuck DeVore with 12.4%.
