Sarah Palin has arrived at the Iowa State fair. Des Moines Register reporter Jennifer Jacobs tweeted just minutes ago:
Palin is here at state fair talking to babies and moms by livestock barns #iacaucusand:
Palin to family farm owner "feeding America, good job we love you." #iacaucusWe wonder how she managed to get there without being noticed. Another nondescript rental car?
Priceless: Scott Conroy of RealClearPolitics just tweeted:
Palin dings Perry: "I'm glad he's entering the race, even though he said he wouldn't"Tim Albrecht, Gov. Terry Branstad's communications director, tweeted that Gov. Palin is with Iowa GOP fundraiser Becky Beach at the fair.
Politico's Maggie Haberman has some great "Palin at the fair" quotes here, here, here and here.
Politico's Ben Smith:
If Palin had a political goal today, it was to dampen speculation that she would endorse Rick Perry, which she did effectively. musing on the contrast of the "very powerful" Alaska governorship with the "not as powerful" Texas one and allowing that she'd be enthusiastic about him only in case he wins the nomination.CBN's David Brody:
