Sarah Palin isn't kidding when she tells crowds in our state how much she loves Texas. At least when it comes to the number of personal appearances the former Alaska governor has made and will make, the Lone Star State has racked up far and away more "wins" than any other state in the union.
On December 4 last year, Gov. Palin's Going Rogue book tour stopped in Plano and at Fort Hood, near Killeen, TX. She campaigned for Rick Perry February 7 in Cypress, just twenty miles northwest of Downtown Houston, where she appeared the following day for a Get Motivated! seminar. On March 25, she was in East Texas for a Beaumont Get Motivated! seminar in the morning and by afternoon was in West Texas for two events in Midland.
Gov. Palin will be back in Houston for a Barbara Bush Celebration of Reading April 22. She's booked for appearances in support of life-affirming organizations in Austin April 29 and in Dallas April 30. She is booked for the Oil Palace in Tyler June 26 and has an event scheduled in Waco September 14.
That's eleven appearances in the Lone Star State by our count, nearly twice as many as she's made and is scheduled to make in any other state. She's made six appearances in Florida and four in Arizona, with another one scheduled. Of the four largest Texas cities, only San Antonio has not yet hosted an event with Sarah Palin.
