Sarah Palin And John McCain To Team In Upcoming Campaign


Sarah Palin and John McCain to team in upcoming campaign Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) has asked his running mate in the 2008 presidential elections to help raise money for his reelection campaign, and they will appear together at a couple of events next month, according to media reports.

Palin is set to stump for McCain in Arizona on March 26 and 27, and her appearances will include a Phoenix fundraiser and a public event, most likely a rally, USA Today reported.

"I’m looking forward to getting back on the campaign trail with my former running mate, and I know my fellow Arizonans will welcome her, as well," McCain said.

"Sarah energized our nation and remains a leading voice in the Republican Party," he added.

At the moment, McCain’s primary challenge seems to be coming from conservative right, as former GOP congressman J.D. Hayworth, a conservative talk-show host, announced he will run against the incumbent for the republican nomination.

The primary election will be held on Aug. 24.

Meanwhile, Palin is also reported to be getting ready to hit the campaign trail in the coming months for other conservatives, including Texas Governor Rick Perry and Representative Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).
