Palin-McCain Arizona Weekend Shaping Up

More details have emerged about Sarah Palin's weekend in Arizona later this month on behalf of Senator John McCain:
McCain and his 2008 running mate will host a campaign rally in Tucson on the afternoon of Friday March 26th, before holding a high dollar fundraiser at the Arizona Biltmore later that evening. On Saturday the 27th they will hold another rally in Phoenix.

For the fundraiser, $2500 gets you into the dinner as well as an hour-long pre-dinner VIP reception, including a photo opportunity with McCain and Palin.

Tickets to the dinner alone run for $500, or $1000 for preferred seating.
McCain's former running mate is just one of several high-profile Republicans the 2008 GOP presidential candidate has tapped to help in his senatorial primary race against former U.S. Representative J.D. Hayworth.

This past weekend McCain campaigned around Arizona with Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), plus he's secured the endorsements of former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-TN), formner Education Secretary Bill Bennett, former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA), former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL), Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-MN) and Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-VA).

  1. I thought she was going to be in Searchlight Nevada to kick off the Tea Party Express on March 27th. It is going to look kind of strange campaigning for McCain and the Tea Party on the same day.

  2. It's a relatively short plane ride from Arizona to Nevada.

  3. Rusty, it shows she's more bi-partisan than BO.

    And she doesn't throw people under the bus as does BO. Who's next to go under there? It's getting pretty crowded.
