Michael Steele, Sharing the Stage With Sarah Palin in April

Sarah Palin and Michael Steele will be sharing the stage at a pro-life dinner in mid-April.

Palin will attend the Vanderburgh County Right to Life dinner in Evansville, Ind., on April 16, Stapleton said. Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele will be a speaker at that “Freedom for Life” banquet, and a major Christian musician, Matthew West, will perform, according to the Web site for the event . . .

Stapleton said SarahPAC will be paying for the governor to attend a celebration of Alaska’s 50th anniversary of statehood in June at William Seward’s former home in New York state. Seward was the secretary of state who negotiated the 1867 purchase of Alaska from Russia.

“During her travels to promote Alaska, the governor may partake in other events at the same time, but we are still poring over requests,” Stapleton said.

If she’s heading to New York, that would put her in the neighborhood of New Jersey . . . and the Republican primary in that state’s governor’s race is on June 2. So she could do a fundraising dinner or appearance for the primary winner during that trip, if she were so inclined . . .
