Palin, Angle planning campaign event

Washington (CNN) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has already donated $2500 to try and help defeat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, and talks are underway for the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee to appear on behalf of GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle.

Jarrod Agen, Angle's spokesman, said that the Nevada Republican nominee's campaign is working with Palin aides to try and schedule an event before Election Day.

"We are obviously happy to have her support and we are working with her team to get the two of them together," said Agen.

The Daily Caller reported Tuesday that Palin plans to “actively help” Angle, a favorite of Tea Party activists.

Reid is one of the Senate's most vulnerable Democrats and Republicans have made efforts to try and defeat him in November a top priority. Recent polls have shown the Nevada contest to be a competitive race.

    If Angle knows what she is doing she will ask Sarah Palin to stay away. Any body she endorses or supports looses their race. Palin coming to campaign for Angle is a sure road to failure. Not that I support Angle but Palin will not help her case.

    A Sarah Palin event next Thursday (Aug. 26) in Florida is being moved to a smaller venue because of underwhelming ticket sales.

    The Jacksonville, FL, event is billed as an "Evening of Hope with Sarah Palin."

    "Originally, it was slated for a 2,936-seat theatre, but now it's been moved to a 609 seat theatre,"

    It is really starting to look like Sara Palin Stardom have taken a dive. Thank you American people.

    Really, like this will help her. Reid went from being 15 points down in the polls to 5 points up in a matter of weeks.

    Let's see, there was "Dumb and Dumber", then "Dumb and Dumberer", so this must be episode 3, "Dumb and Dumbest".
