Palin yet to confirm participation for GOP dinnerMarch 18th, 2009 - 5:55 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Mar 18 (ANI): The two Republican congressional committees have announced that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin would speak at a June joint fundraising dinner, one of the biggest Republican gatherings of the year, but she has still not confirmed her participation for the event.
Palins spokesman said that congressional Republicans were mistaken in announcing the governor would headline the Republican gatherings of the year, the Senate-House dinner in Washington, D.C.
The Governors office said Palin has not even confirmed she would be attending the event.
I communicated with the governor directly and she did not know anything about it, said Bill McAllister, the Governors spokesman.
Politico quoted McAllister as saying that Palin asked him why the AP was reporting that she was going to do this.
I pointed out the (National Republican Senatorial Committee) press release and she was like, no, he said. (ANI)
