Rumor: Sarah Palin Will Participate in Tea Party GOP Debate?
Amid much speculation about whether or not Sarah Palin will choose to run in the 2012 presidential election, the former Alaskan Governor has announced she will participate in a nationally televised Tea Party Republican Debate.
Although Palin will take part in the debate in the Sept. 12 debate in Tampa, Fla., she still has yet to confirm that she is looking to become a presidential hopeful. However, the 2008 vice presidential candidate seems to be dropping hints via her Twitter page.
“America is waiting for the president to make good on this promise,” Palin recently posted on Twitter. “I’ll be talking about this and more.”
Although Palin will join Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, businessman Herman Cain, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman on Sept. 12, some say she is only confusing her supporters.
Erick Erickson, RedState conservative blogger, said Palin is misleading her constituents.
“We are coming to the end of the line for Sarah Palin’s ability to string the Republican primary voters along,” Erickson wrote. “They are trying to settle on a candidate now, they’ve held out hope of her entry and are now ready for her to put up or shut up. Many of them have already moved on.”
