Former vice presidential candidate and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is reportedly in the Tri-Cities.
We have to say reportedly because this information comes about third-hand:
State Democrats (yes, Democrats) report that Republican Senate candidate Clint Didier has tweeted that he has to make a quick trip to the T-C to meet with Palin. ("All geared up for the convention. Then I got the call from Sarah. I'm now getting ready to sit down with Sarah Palin.")
And they sent a photo of a sign in front of a table at the state GOP convention in Vancouver that he was he'd be back after flying over to the Tri Cities to talk to Palin "about fundraising".
No word on whether he'd try to bring Palin with him. She's not on the schedule, but chances are the state GOP would clear a few minutes for her to address the crowd if she showed.
