Palin-McCain Visit Starting To Take ShapeMarch 11, 2010 - 3:02 PM | by: Jake Gibson
Former Republican vice presidential nominee and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will be in Arizona the last weekend of March as part of Senator John McCain’s re-election campaign. Details of that trip are now starting to come into focus.
McCain and his 2008 running mate will host a campaign rally in Tucson on the afternoon of Friday March 26th, before holding a high dollar fundraiser at the Arizona Biltmore later that evening. On Saturday the 27th they will hold another rally in Phoenix.
For the fundraiser, $2500 gets you into the dinner as well as an hour-long pre-dinner VIP reception, including a photo opportunity with McCain and Palin.
Tickets to the dinner alone run for $500, or $1000 for preferred seating.
The fundraiser will be at the same hotel resort where the McCain campaign spent the 2008 Super Tuesday. Ultimately the McCain-Palin campaign also chose as The Biltmore as the site for election night in 2008.
Palin is just one of many big name endorsements McCain has received lately in his GOP senatorial primary race against former Arizona congressman J.D. Hayworth.
Just this past weekend McCain barnstormed across Arizona with newly minted Republican Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown. McCain has also been endorsed by former Massachusetts Governor and 2008 GOP Presidential rival Mitt Romney, Minnesota Governor and 2012 hopeful Tim Pawlenty, as well as the new Republican Governor of Virginia, Bob McDonnell.
