Campaign staff and volunteers of Sen. John McCain and his former vice presidential running mate Sarah Palin are preparing for the pairs appearance at Mesas Dobson High School on Saturday.
A spokesman for the camp offered a bit of advice for those wanting to get in: Folks should get there early, said Brian Rogers, McCains communications director.The event is free, on a first-come, first-served basis and does not require a ticket.
Also speaking at a rally in Tucson on Friday, the appearances are McCain and Palins first ones together at a public event since their concession speech in the 2008 presidential race.
Their appearance comes just four days after President Barack Obama signed a $938 billion health care reform bill. McCain has been an outspoken critic of the bill and plans to lead an effort to repeal it.
Palin, the former governor of Alaska, is stumping for McCain. She will speak about McCains values and what she learned from him during their 2008 presidential campaign and through his battles against his own party line, Rogers said.
McCain will speak about what he appreciates in Palins leadership, and speak out against what he believes are misguided priorities in the White House including government overspending, his concerns for the 17 percent unemployment rate in Arizona and the states home foreclosure problem as 48 percent of homeowners in Arizona are under water, according to Rogers.

This woman needs to be booed for a change in person.
ROFL!!!! That’s one hilarious pic!
J D HAYWORTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The toxic, sub-prime part of the Palin/McCain political-tranche is......McCain.
Anybody notice how enthusiasm for Sarah has fallen faster than the price of Arizona real estate since she started campaigning for McCain?
I can say she’s completely lost me with this display of loyalty to the old Washington progressive machine.
Guess I’m holding out hope now that Michelle Bachmann won’t sell us out too.
Sen. John McCain (Idiot-AZ) needs to go away. He said we have nothing to fear from Obama. He voted for illegal aliens amnesty. His family is a nattering embarrassment.
Sarah needs to watch the company she keeps - not a healthy thing to associate with McRino.
She can start out by saying uh, uh uh. I don’t know. What can she say?
whats the difference between a RINO and someone who supports a RINO ?
I am getting the feeling Sarah has decided to stay out of Presidential politics.
She seems to have moved to the lecture ciruit and now some “Alaska Reality Show”. Reality show?? sure does seem a different path than she was on last month. Making a very good living without the hassle of national politics is probably very enticing.
I hope I am wrong.
"I have to tell you, J.D. is a decent person, a person that you
do not have to be scared of as the next Senator from Arizona."
McCain will send Palin home early and she can call it clean with him and move on...
I think it’s gone beyond merely “watching the company she keeps.” She has passed the point of no return in this ridiculous support of McCain.
In before the “She owes John this” crowd.
That’s a keeper. GO JD. Sarah, we love you but you got this one bass akwards
She could begin the most electrifying political comeback in history by turning on him there and really reaming him for being a RINO sellout. FR would have the most rocking live thread in its history.
I think you’re right. She will not run for president. She will use the power of her following to be a king-maker and influence the party platform.
Just how damn much does Palin “owe” this useless old fool?
I read her book and about 1/8 of it is praise for McCain.
