Confirmed: Sarah Palin to Headline Iowa GOP Dinner in September

Well-placed sources tell that Sarah Palin is slated to be the keynote speaker at the Republican Party of Iowa’s Ronald Reagan Dinner on Friday, September 17th.  The state party is slated to release more details about the event tomorrow.

The visit would be Palin’s first visit to Iowa since making a brief stop in the state in December of 2009 for a book signing.  The visit to the First-In-The-Nation Caucus state is certain to create buzz about a potential run for president in 2012.

Palin’s visit comes on the heels of her appearance at Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally in Washington D.C.    It also comes a week after released polling results that showed Palin trailing Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, and Newt Gingrich in a 2012 caucus poll.

Bringing Palin to the state is a big deal for the Republican Party of Iowa.  Most people have strong opinions of Palin following the 2008 presidential campaign, and she is sure to be a tremendous draw for the state party.
