GOP Vice Presidential Candidate Palin Returning To NC

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will make a weekend campaign stop in North Carolina.

A release from the John McCain campaign said Palin will visit Asheville on Sunday for a "Road To Victory Rally" at the Asheville Civic Center.

The event is scheduled to begin after 4 p.m.

Palin last visited North Carolina with an appearance at Elon University on Oct. 16. Sunday's rally will be her third visit to the state in as many weeks.

The McCain campaign has recently ramped up efforts to defend the state, which has not voted for a Democrat for president since 1976 but is trending toward Democrat Barack Obama this year.

Obama made a campaign stop in Asheville earlier this month and prior to a debate with McCain.

    Did it ever occur to anyone that if we were ever nuked Gog forbid, that Palin is the first responder in our defense? I am so sick of you people dogging her on her experience. Go to and check her out shooting an assault rifle! That is my kind of VP! Now let's discuss Obama's spending spree!

    Glad to her back in a state that will to Republican. Already voted for their ticket. Disturbing to see WITN air a segment on Gov.Palin's wardrobe but not mention Sen. Biden's botox injections. Just interesting to see the liberal Democrat slant. The media seems to be getting more desperate.

    Well, Palin is making a social visit to thank us for voting for her and John McCain. Yes, Obama can go home now back to Wright and Ayers and figure what he did wrong and why he lost. I think Hillary will run next since Obama is now washed up after spending over 600 million. Liberals...they just can't tell the truth.
