Sarah Palin to Fox News: I Won't Speak at Republican National Convention
It's been a question mark for months now: Will Sarah Palin stir 'em up at the Republican National Convention just two weeks away?
“Everything I said at the 2008 convention about then-candidate Obama still stands today,” she told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “This year is a good opportunity for other voices to speak at the convention and I’m excited to hear them.
“As I’ve repeatedly said, I support Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in their efforts to replace President Obama at the ballot box, and I intend to focus on grassroots efforts to rally independents and the GOP base to elect Senate and House members so a wise Congress is ready to work with our new president to get our country back on the right path.”
She never clarified whether she turned down an invitation to speak in Tampa or was never asked. She had earlier told Van Susteren that she was approached about a possible convention role, but was waiting for more details to make a decision.
