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.

    After seeing Ms. Palin's recent track record of helping candidates, (O for 5 this month) maybe Ms. Angle should say thanks, but no thanks, if she really plans to win.

    CNN really on a roll today with 2, count them 2 Palin stories and one Fox News stories. The moderators that make sure conservatives aren't able to comment must be taking a break and letting all the dope smokers rant, rave, demean and degrade. Did you read some of the comments in the Fox story about southerners from these dope smokers who call conservatives racists, talk about some bigotry, these libs are the most hypocritical bigots ever. They can't help it though, they were educated, using our tax dollars, by the NEA to be so stupid. That is how democrats reproduce their idiocy.

    Please get a group picture, of those willing to pay to see these idiots. But beware, the use of a flash would ruin the picture, as many will be wearing their tin foil hats for protection.

    All the money she is making and that is what she donates. Well we see she is taking her dough to the bank. Why would anyone want her endorsement anyway.What is she a half governor or just a pig with lipstick?

    I'm curious – when Sarah appears on behalf of a candidate, does she pay her own expenses (airfare, hotel, etc.) or does it come out of the campaign's money?

    Since Sarah Palin is 0 for 5 this month in primaries around the country I say bring her on. We look forward to Palin's endorsement of our own Sharon"crazy eyes" Angle in Nevada.
    Nevada is a friendly state and hopefully the whole Palin family shows up on stage. Deja vu all over again.

    Palin was so busy she didn't have time ti attend the funeral of Ted Stevens. Plenty of Democrats did. Such a loyal repo isn't she.
