JUNEAU, Alaska - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin plans to use money raised through her political action committee to attend two events in Indiana in mid-April, two days before the end of the Alaska legislative session.
SarahPAC put out a request for donations Wednesday with a message that Palin would soon be traveling the country and working to support leaders who share this vision.
PAC spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton says Palin plans to attend the Vanderburgh County Right to Life dinner in Evansville on April 16 and a breakfast the following day with a group dedicated to special needs children.
Stapleton says committee staff is sifting through thousands of requests for Palin to attend events.
Unfortunately, eight Republican joined the rest of the Democrats in voting yes. They were: Senators Cochran, Wicker, Bond, Murkowski, Alexander, Shelby, Specter, Snowe. All but Wicker and Snowe are appropriators, who expect to bring big time pork to their states. Wicker went along because of the pork Cochran put in for Mississippi, and Snowe, well, she may really just be a Republican in name only.
