Palin to speak in Carson City

Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin is scheduled to campaign in Carson City on Saturday, the first visit to Nevada by John McCain's surprise running mate pick.

The Alaska governor is scheduled to speak at a public rally in the capital city's Mills Park at 5 p.m., according to the campaign.

McCain campaign spokesman Rick Gorka said the choice to have Palin visit Northern Nevada was an indication the campaign sees the area as a battleground as both McCain and Democrat Barack Obama try to capture Nevada's electoral votes.

**SNIP**

"We've seen an incredible increase in our volunteers" since she joined the ticket, he said. New volunteer signups, already at healthy levels, increased significantly, Gorka claimed. In August, a couple hundred volunteers signed up each week. Last week, Gorka said 1,200 people volunteered.

Palin, he said, has a perfect profile to appeal to Nevadans. "Like John McCain, she's a Westerner," he said. "She's independent, a maverick and a reformer, a fiscal conservative, and strong on the Second Amendment."

Gorka said the campaign expects 500 to 600 attendees at the Carson City rally.

The rally is open to members of the general public, who are asked to RSVP by e-mail to palinnevada@gmail.com.

I used to live just over the hill from Carson City in Moundhouse, I expect everyone will drive in from south, Lake Tahoe and Reno.

I estimate no less than 10,000.

Riiiight...

The LVRJ doesn't seem to realize that since California is not in play and we have no Republican party here maybe the best assistance those of us in Northern California can give to the McCain/Palin campaign is to drive four hours or so to Nevada, which is in play, and make a little noise for Sarah.

Saturday, 5 PM, Carson City, NV. I80 to US50, hang a left on US395.

That’s preposterous!

This will be the first political rally I’ve attended in 16 years (Clinton - don’t ask), and I’m sure I’m not alone.

I’d be surprised at less that 10,000.
