Elisabeth Hasselbeck To Campaign With Sarah Palin This Weekend

ABC reports that "The View" co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck announced Thursday morning that she will hit the campaign trail with Sarah Palin this weekend:

The McCain-Palin campaign's efforts to reach women is about to get a celebrity boost: Elisabeth Hasselbeck is set to join Gov. Sarah Palin on the campaign trail.

"The View" co-host said Thursday the McCain campaign contacted her a day earlier, to convey an invitation from Palin to introduce her at rallies Sunday in Florida.

"I am more than honored to be there, so I will be flying there to travel with her and meet some pretty interesting people, I have a feeling," Hasselbeck said. "That's an honor, I'm excited to do it, and I'll have some stories I'm sure on Monday."

Watch the announcement:

Last month, Hasselbeck's former political sparring partner Rosie O'Donnell said that Hasselbeck and Palin are "identical cousins, women who hunt in high heels."
