NBC is reporting that a McCain advisor describes the speech Sarah Palin will deliver in Tucson today as "meaty." Gov. Palin's remarks at the Pima County Fairgrounds will, of course, be mostly about Sen. McCain, as she is in Arizona to help her former running mate in his campaign to retain his seat in the U.S. Senate.
The event, which should start shortly, will be streamed by CNN here. Cindy McCain will introduce Gov. Palin, and the former GOP vice presidential candidate is scheduled to speak for about about 10 to 12 minutes. She will then introduce Sen. McCain, who will speak for about five minutes.
Gov. Palin will also appear at a McCain fundraiser this evening at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, and at a rally tomorrow morning at Dobson High School in Mesa (the McCain campaign will be streaming video of that event here). In addition, Gov. Palin and Sen. McCain are scheduled to be Greta Van Susteren's guests tonight on Fox News' "On The Record."
