Skip to comments.Huge crowds expected for McCain-Palin event
Posted on 03/23/2010 8:12:27 PM PDT by rabscuttle385
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.

Unfortunate. But is she stumping for McCain, or just giving one appearance.
Both McCain and Palin took on the Republican Party. The difference, of course, is that Sarah did it from the right, and helped get rid of several corrupt RINOs. McCain always does it from the left.
Both McCain and Palin are mavericks, too. The difference is that McCain constantly veers left and works with Democrats, whereas Sarah fights the party machine and opposes corruption.
One further thing. I doubt whether Sarah will persuade any real conservatives to vote for McCain. The only result, if any, is that she may undermine her own support. She does this out of gratitude and loyalty, but I wish she had stayed clear of the primary.
Its worth noting that the last time they were on stage together they would not let her speak. Now they are begging her to speak. I think that says volumes.
Michelle Bachmann wont let you down. And yes, I have noticed a much tempered reaction toward Sarah. My own particularly. Johnny “Pepe” McCain, my friend, needs to ride off into the sunset.
...to reflect her more "nuanced" message in this unfortunate situation! ;)Let's hope that Governor Palin RAPIDLY repays her "debt of gratitude" to Senator McCain...
...and turns back from the "Dark Side" -- ASAP!

To be supporting juan is just dumb.
Palin: be a real maverick yourself and oppose McCain.
Uh no not really. She's been kicking ass and taking names whenever I've seen her on tv the past few days.
Two public rallies, plus a dinner and photo op.
McCain-Feingold got us where we are now...hell on earth.
2006/2008 Dem Congress and Obama. Anyone who helps or votes for McCain is a fool. The seniors and babyboomers in AZ are going to get screwed SO bad by Obama. It is just starting.
McCain and Graham-nesty are Obama’s lapdogs. Palin, Mitt or Mutt, Fred, or anyone campaigning for McCain are idiots.
McCain is part of the "party machine," and yes, McCain is definitely corrupt.
Its simple math
Juan=Amnesty and collaboration.
Therefore I =/= Sarah
Can any of the Hayworth supporters address the issue that Hayworth wasn’t exactly known for saying no to earmarks was he. He was pretty much Mr, Earmarks.
And McCain was Mr. Bailout.
You are half way there. They should come to see Palin then when McCain gets up to the mike - they should walk out.
AZ baby boomers and seniors are going to get screwed SOOO badly by Obama. It is just starting and McCain’s feiend Cronyn said he does not want to repeal Obamacare. F Cronyn.
McCain is Obama’s boy. In FL we are getting rid of Crist. McCain is more evil than Crist.
I won’t vote for him this time either.
I wish she would have refused to take a position on this race, which would be a statement in itself.
There are plenty of Sarah supporters who are supporting McCain..
They are frequently seen here on Freerepublic.
The events are going to be controlled.
Michelle asked for and received Sarah's appearance at Michelle's fund raiser.
Does that mean that Michelle associates with RINO's?
