Sarah Palin will headline the Sept. 17 annual Ronald Reagan dinner and state GOP fundraiser in Iowa, a move sure to feed media speculation about her plans vis a vis the 2012 presidential campaign, given that Iowa holds the first-in-the-nation caucuses on Feb. 6, 2012.
The Iowa appearance is yet another high-profile event focusing attention on the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential nominee of the Republican Party. Last weekend, Ms. Palin was a featured speaker at Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington.
Palin, a Fox News contributor, has played down speculation about her own political future. She told Fox News on Monday evening that she is currently focused on helping to elect conservative Republicans in the November midterm elections, according to a report on the broadcast by The Hill.
