They're back, together.
After campaigning apart the last few days, Sarah Palin and John McCain are stumping this afternoon in the bellwether state of Ohio.
Palin is mostly giving her usual campaign speech, telling a crowd in the small town of Vienna near Youngstown that Democrat Barack Obama told small-town voters he understands their concerns, but told a fund-raiser in San Francisco that small-town residents bitter about their economic struggles cling to religion or guns.
"Whoever is listening, John McCain is the same man," Palin said.
She repeated that "we're going to Washington, D.C., to shake things up," then added to her speech to reflect the Wall Street meltdown.
Palin echoed McCain's criticism of "reckless" financial firms, greedy CEOs, and incompetent federal regulators.
"It's going to take a proven reformer to clean up Wall Street, and that man is John McCain," she said.
