One Nation bus tour to roll again tomorrow (Updated)

Gov. Palin will be in Iowa before the Ames straw poll

It's been nearly three months since the "One Nation" bus tour traveled up the east coast, but it will soon be rolling into Iowa, according to a SarahPAC fundraising email obtained by CNN.
Palin is bringing her Constitution-themed bus to the Iowa State Fair, just 30 miles south of where the Republican presidential field will take the stage on Thursday for a presidential debate in Ames.

It's not yet clear which day the tour will begin, but her surprise arrival in Iowa will happen before the closely watched Ames straw poll. Palin is not on the straw poll ballot.

According to a video link included the fundraising email for Palin's political action committee, it appears the bus will also take Palin to Missouri and Illinois to visit the respective hometowns of former presidents Harry Truman and Ronald Reagan.

"The heartland is perfect territory for more of the One Nation Tour as we put forth efforts to revitalize the fundamental restoration of America by highlighting our nation's heart, history, and founding principles," Palin writes in the email.

Tim Crawford, the treasurer, confirmed the authenticity of the email but would not provide more the details about the tour.

For Palin supporters, her return to Iowa, like the 2012 election, can't come soon enough.

Update: The bus rolls tomorrow.
ABC News has confirmed that Sarah Palin will re-launch her “One Nation” bus tour in Iowa tomorrow, the same day that Republican presidential contenders will take the stage for a debate in Ames, Iowa.
