Tea party favorite Sarah Palin may end up campaigning with Republican Senate hopeful Sharron Angle at some point, but not when Palin is in Las Vegas next week for a bowling convention, Angle’s campaign says.
The former Alaska governor is the keynote speaker next Wednesday at the 2010 International Bowl Expo put on by the Bowling Proprietors Association of America at the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Las Vegas Hilton. Palin’s appearance raised the question whether she might be doing or saying anything while in town to advance Angle’s bid to unseat Sen. Harry Reid.
Maybe later but not now, according to Angle campaign spokesman Jerry Stacy.
“Sarah Palin has already funded Sharron Angle’s campaign with a generous contribution, and we will work to coordinate an event at a later date,” Stacy said by email.
He did not elaborate on how much Palin gave and when. Presumably that will show up when both Angle’s campaign and Palin’s political action committee update their public disclosures at the end of the month.
Palin was last seen in Southern Nevada on March 27, when she spoke at the Tea Party Express "Showdown in Searchlight" that made Reid a target of the tea party movement this year.
