Weather disrupts Palin's campaign stops

CANTON, Ohio (CNN) – Sarah Palin is postponing visits to Cincinnati and Dayton as the remnants of Hurricane Ike torment southern Ohio and northern Kentucky.

High winds have killed several people in Ohio and left thousands without power.

The vice presidential candidate had been scheduled to spend the night in Cincinnati Monday and hold a fundraiser there on Tuesday. She had also planned to spend that night in Dayton before holding a fundraiser in town the following morning.

Palin and John McCain will proceed as planned with their joint rally in the Youngstown area, in northwest Ohio, on Tuesday afternoon. The event will be their first appearance on the trail together since Palin departed for Alaska last Wednesday.

“Due to the state of emergency, and to avoid a possible diversion of personnel and resources, Gov. Palin’s visits to the Cincinnati and Dayton areas have been postponed to a later date. Tomorrow’s rally in the Mahoning Valley will continue as planned,” said a statement released by the campaign.

    CNN post my comments...

    What is Sara Palin hiding?

    She is suppose to be a reformer and the one who is going to change Washington and make it transparent.

  9. UNREAL how some escape justice

    NOT surprise where this claim came from, the Former Palin Press Secretary Meg Stapleton....ISN'T SHE THE ONE THAT HELPED HER SELL THE PLAIN ON EBAY, so she said "I was at the state to finish of the plain on Ebay"... These LADIES are CROCKS!!!!!!

    WASN'T SARAH BEING INVESTIGATED BEFORE MCCAIN PICKED HER AS VP. ISN'T IT STATED THAT A JUDGE WARNED HER TO BACK OFF HER BOTHER IN LAW IN 2005.....NOW Former Palin Press Secretary Meg Stapleton is STATING THAT SARAH ABUSE OF POWER IS BEING "HIJACKED" BY OBAMA OPERATIVES". WASN'T IT HER WHO ABUSE HER POWER OF ARTHORITY?........If she don't follow the LAW before the White House, what LAWS will she break while inside the WHITE HOUSE?

    She probably needed more time to rehearse anyway! Nothing original comes out of her mouth, even her friends say that they can't say that they would vote for her!
