Sarah Palin Cuts Robocalls For 'Mama Grizzly' Candidates In Delaware, New Hampshire

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is lending her voice to "mama grizzly" Senate primary candidates in Delaware and New Hampshire. Palin robocalls for the campaigns of Tea Party-backed Delaware Republican Christine O'Donnell and New Hampshire's Kelly Ayotte have been released over the weekend, which encourage voters to cast ballots for her "conservative" candidates on Tuesday's primary elections.

In Delaware, Palin commends O'Donnell's "common sense" and ability to "rein in federal government spending."

"Christine will support efforts for America's energy security and patient-centered health care reform, and cutting Government waste and letting the private sector thrive and prosper," Palin says in the spot, which is also running as a radio ad.

Palin also drops a little solidarity for O'Donnell, who is facing off against GOP mainline candidate and sitting Rep. Mike Castle, saying that she can "relate to the vicious personal attacks on Christine, and can tell you it's sad to see the establishment's desperation in this."

In the Granite State, Palin's robocall claims "true conservative" Kelly Ayotte "will cut spending, eliminate earmarks, protect your 2nd Amendment rights and bring some much-needed Granite State common sense to the Senate."

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), another conservative kingmaker shook up the New Hampshire Republican Senate primary over the weekend when he threw his support behind a surging Ovide Lamontagne, who is running with considerable Tea Party support. Ayotte is also facing self-funding businessman Bill Binnie.

DeMint has also announced that he is endorsing Christine O'Donnell in Delaware.

The latest round of polling in Delaware shows that O'Donnell has largely closed the gap with Castle, making the race now "too close to call."

In New Hampshire, recent surveys show Ayotte conceding substantial portions of her once solid lead on Binnie and Lamontagne.
