Where is Sarah Palin?
The former Alaska governor embarked on a bus tour of the eastern United States last month, kicking off the trip Memorial Day weekend in the nation's capital. While Palin initially remained mum on where her travels would take her, her tentative itinerary reportedly included stops in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Iowa.
Real Clear Politics reports:
Though Palin and her staff never announced a timeline for the remaining legs of her trip, aides had drafted preliminary itineraries that would have taken her through the Midwest and Southeast at some point this month. But those travel blueprints are now in limbo, RCP has learned, as Palin and her family have reverted to the friendly confines of summertime Alaska, where the skies are currently alight for over 19 hours a day and the Bristol Bay salmon fishing season is nearing its peak.
Earlier this month, Palin regarded her time on the road as "one of the best weeks" of her life in a web video released by her political action committee highlighting stops from the first week of her trip.
"Our family has been blessed with an opportunity to showcase all that is good and strong and free about our exceptional nation," said Palin in a statement released in conjunction with the clip. "Even though the media too often sadly chose sound-bites over substance, they did get lots of substance during our 'One Nation' tour from the nearly two dozen opportunities I got to speak candidly with them and talk about policy, politics, history, and everything in between. More importantly, I got to talk with countless everyday Americans who want to get our country back on the right track."
