Sarah Palin, who spoke at an Extraordinary Women conference in Lynchburg, Virginia October 8th, will address a similar event in Tupelo, Mississippi this weekend:
The speech by the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee is set for 3 p.m. Saturday. It's part of the Extraordinary Women Conference at the BancorpSouth Arena in Tupelo.Gov. Palin is also scheduled to speak at 2012 Extraordinary Women events in Greenville, South Carolina in March and Birmingham, Alabama in April.
Michael Stewart, the conference's vice president for event development, told the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that Tupelo is one of only four stops on the Extraordinary Women tour at which Palin will speak.
He said organizers "looked for markets where her appearance demographically made sense." Stewart said the presence of the Tupelo-based American Family Association is among the reasons Palin chose to speak in the city.
