Palin Hits The Road, Says She Is ‘Contemplating’ Presidential Run

June 1, 2011 by  

Palin hits the road, says she is 'contemplating' Presidential runFormer Alaska Governor Sarah Palin recently embarked on a national bus tour, which has reignited speculation that the Tea Party favorite is readying for a Presidential campaign.

Palin’s “One Nation” bus tour kicked off on May 29, with visits to Fort McHenry in Baltimore and Mount Vernon in Virginia on Memorial Day. According to CNN, Palin was scheduled to appear in Massachusetts and New Hampshire during the first leg of her cross-country trek.

On May 31, Palin told CNN that she will visit Iowa at some point during the tour. When asked about her candidacy for the GOP Presidential nomination, the 2008 Republican Vice Presidential nominee said that she was “still kind of contemplating” a run in 2012.

“I think any Republican candidate is very, very electable,” Palin told the news source. “I think Americans are ready for true change.”

Meanwhile, another Tea Party darling, Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.), recently talked about the possibility of both her and Palin — who are often compared — running for the Republican nomination. During an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America on May 31, she said that there is room for “a lot of contenders” against President Barack Obama.

Bachmann stated that she doesn’t consider Palin to be a competitor.

“We’re friends,” Bachmann told the news source.
