2012 Draft Sarah Committee has been formed to encourage Gov. Sarah Palin to run for U.S. President in 2012.

The 2012 Draft Sarah Committee is registered with the Federal Elections Commission as a draft committee. The requirements on who can contribute are the same as for any federal elections. Statements of income, contributors and expenditures are filed with the FEC.

Be sure to sign up for the newsletter at 2012 Draft Sarah Committee to keep informed.

24, 642 hits 8897 newsletter subscribers 53 Volunteers 17 State Organizers 200 emails sent to Gov. Palin which are 5200 emails including Alaska State Republicans.

News 1. We are working to develop a board of advisors. We will be asking those such as Fred Thompson, Tom Tancredo, Duncan Hunter, Saxby Chambliss, etc. They can give us advice and at clout to our efforts. 2. We are working to have Gov. Palin come to the AZ border to investigate the situation first hand. This we feel would be much more newsworthy and active than issuing position statements. This would dispel any doubts as to her and the immigration issues. 3. A template is being made for business cards. 4. We will be sending out a Grass Roots Movement Develops for Sarah Palin press release. This you will be able to forward to your email lists. It will include other activist groups. You will be able to put your name and contact on it. Local papers will be much more likely to print it, if there is a local angle to the story. 5. We will be sending out some guidelines from the FEC on campaign dos and don't. 6. We will be developing a logo. If anyone submits one or two, we can have a contest. Entries welcome. If you have any questions, comments, let me know. Look forward to working with you.

OLEAN — Olean cartographer Earl “Steamboat” McElfresh won’t be installed in his new post on the city’s Common Council until Friday. But in his other role as a Republican committee member, he already has prompted a move that could bring the city some national attention.

At McElfresh’s urging, Olean’s City Republican Party Committee has embraced Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as its endorsed candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination

Usually don't read much of our biased rag but spotted this today.

I won’t support Sarah in 2012. Prayerfully, we’ll find Conservative leadership along the way that can handle the attack of the left wing media.

Without her having to carry dead weight like John McCain, I think that Gov. Palin will do just fine.

Wow! Great idea! She can teach us all to thank God for the “blessing” of $140.00 per barrel oil and $4.00 per gallon gasoline. Yup, there’s another brilliant, Republican, winning strategy!

We are working to have Gov. Palin come to the AZ border to investigate the situation first hand. This we feel would be much more newsworthy and active than issuing position statements. This would dispel any doubts as to her and the immigration issues.

So basically you want her to flip flop?

Palin has four years to toughen up. Before the onslaught, she had higher likability ratings than both McCain and Obama.

"I won’t support Sarah in 2012"

Made up your mind already, have you? If she ends up as the nominee are you going to stay home? This kind of thinking is what is killing the Republican party.

Sorry, I was looking for a good photo of Sarah when this came up, I had to post it, you know those rabbit pictures everyone posts here with the pancakes on it's head?

I'm pro-sarah, but this I thought was kind of funny ... It's 4 years away, we can laugh for now ...

Juan is more than "dead weight." Juan is actively cheerleading for the leftists in the Rat Party.

Maybe I’ll see things differently in three to four years, but at this time I’ll keep a wait and see attitude while we work on the state and local.

Local and State is where we have to put in fresh faces with new ideas (Conservative ideas) in order to take back this country.

Grassroots efforts are getting underway, which is excellent.

Team Sarah is closing in on 64,000 members. http://www.teamsarah.org/

Draft Sarah Palin for President http://www.draftpalinforpresident.com/news.html
reports over 100,000 members

Sarah Palin Radio has moved up to #7 out of 120 programs on wsRadio.

http://www.wsradio.com/internet-talk-radio.cfm/shows/Sarah-Palin-Radio.html

2008 isn’t even over yet, and there is at least 2.5 years to go. By 2012 she could very well have a highly developed ground force in place for the primaries.

I have never seen anyone withstand media attacks with the grace and toughness that Sarah did. She kept her chin up, and never backed down from her principles.

She took all the flak because she was right over the target.

Nope, I’ll vote for her but I won’t be bullied either. :)

During the GOP primaries, the Rudy brigade attacked me time and time again because of my support for Fred.

They made fun of Fred being a late entry, but Rudy gave up before the party started.

So once again, Nope, I won’t be bullied. Oh and for the record, I always VOTE when an election takes place - local, state and federal elections are equally important to me. What say you?

“we’ll find Conservative leadership along the way that can handle the attack of the left wing media”

The way for her to handle the left-wing media is the not speak with them or play their game. She can go on conservative talk radio and Faux News shows.

Of course if conservative talk radio doesn’t grow some onions it won’t matter.

I would wait a couple years. A lot can change. Granted registration is necessary because of funding regulation, but nothing need be done now aside from designing letterhead.
