Palin Visits Indiana

October 20, 2008

Republican Vice Presidential candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s first visit to Indiana today (FRIDAY) brought a crowd of fifteen thousand people to the northern Indianapolis suburb of Noblesville.  She was introduced by Indiana’s Lieutenant Governor Becky Skillman, who said Palin’s background in the small town of Wasilla, Alaska made her able to relate to everyday Hoosiers.  Palin herself sought to express her connections to Indiana; telling the crowd that her daughter Piper’s middle name is “Indy” after Indianapolis five hundred.  She also told the supporters at the rally that their votes would be critical to a victory for John McCain.

Palin’s visit follows stops by Michelle Obama to Fort Wayne Wednesday and a Barack Obama rally in Indianapolis the week prior.  At her rally, Palin called for investigations into possible ties between Obama and the voter registration group, Acorn, that’s been accused of fraud.  She also highlighted McCain’s plans for a federal government spending freeze and his promise of a balanced budget in four years.
