Will Sarah vie for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012? Only time will tell, but one things is for sure Mrs. Palin will not miss a chance to soak up some of the spotlight this weekend in Iowa? CNN’s Peter Hamby reports:
After a more than two-month hiatus, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is planning to crash the presidential party once again with a heartland-themed re-launch of her “One Nation” bus tour this week in Iowa, according to a Palin fundraising email obtained by CNN.
Palin is bringing her Constitution-draped bus to the Iowa State Fair, just 30 miles south of where the Republican presidential field will take the stage on Thursday for a presidential debate in Ames.
It’s not yet clear which day the tour begins, but her surprise arrival in Iowa will happen before the closely watched Ames straw poll. Palin is not on the straw poll ballot.
She has plans to return to the state over Labor Day weekend for a Tea Party rally in the Des Moines area.
