Sarah Palin to Speak at Rally in Norfolk

June 27, 2010

Sarah Palin is speaking at a Norfolk rally for conservatives Sunday, with two heroes of Virginia's Republican right serving as warm-up acts.

Her former running mate John McCain speaks Sunday at Old Dominion University's Ted Constant Center. The star-spangled event starts at 6:30 p.m.

Palin resigned as Alaska's governor in July 2009. The move fueled rumors she would run for president in 2012, and she has since prospered financially and politically on the talk circuit.

With her will be 1980s Iran-Contra figure and former Virginia Senate candidate Oliver North and former governor and U.S. Sen. George Allen. Allen lost his Senate seat in 2006 in a "Macaca" moment.

Allen has published a book for what Republicans say is a bid to win back his Senate seat from Democrat Jim Webb in 2012.
