Sarah Palin is heading to Iowa in September. She’ll be the featured speaker at the Iowa Republican Party’s annual fall fundraiser on September 17, 2010. Her political action committee has indicated that she is planning a more active campaign schedule in the fall. Read more below and see photos and a video.
Sarah Palin is heading to Iowa and people are speculating about what exactly that means. Of course, in the immediate it means she’s the headliner for the Iowa Republican party’s annual fundraiser on September 17th. But does it mean she’s starting a campaign for the Iowa caucuses? Her CPAC has said she’ll be starting a more aggressive fall campaign schedule. Make of that what you will.
The Iowa caucuses are still 18-months away, but we might remember that Barack Obama’s presidential campaign went on for at least 2 years. Other potential Republican candidates have already been laying the groundwork for a run in Iowa including Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Tim Pawlenty.
For those who write Palin off as damaged goods, you might do well to remember that she has won every time she’s run for office on her own. The only times she has lost has been when she has been someone else’s running mate. I think its a mistake to under-estimate Sarah Palin.
