Palin to headline tea party event in Iowa, renewing speculation she may join presidential race
WASHINGTON (AP) ' Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is heading to Iowa, stoking speculation she might join the presidential race.
Tea Party of America founder Ken Crow said Wednesday the 2008 vice presidential nominee will speak at his group's Sept. 3 rally near Des Moines. Iowa holds the lead-off nominating caucuses, and her Labor Day-weekend trip there comes as Palin weighs whether to mount a White House campaign.
She has said she will decide on a presidential bid in late August or early September.
Earlier this year, Palin made headlines for a campaign-style bus tour from Washington to New England during Memorial Day weekend.
News of Palin's trip to Iowa was first reported by Real Clear Politics.
