Confirmed: Palin to be in Iowa on Tuesday

TheIowaRepublican.com learned this morning that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will attend the premier of the new documentary, The Undefeated, which documents her rise in American politics.

The controversial new documentary about will make its debut premier at the 111 year-old Pella Opera House on Tuesday evening at 5 p.m.  The Undefeated was written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon, and is set to be released in ten different markets in mid July.

Palin’s appearance in Iowa, her first since the fall of 2010, will come on the heels of Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s official entry into the presidential race.  This isn’t the first time Palin will have stolen some of the media attention from a Republican announcement.  Palin also made an appearance in New Hampshire on the same day that Mitt Romney launched his presidential campaign.
Another interesting dynamic is that Palin will be in Iowa on the same day as President Obama.  Obama is scheduled to tour an Alcoa Plant in Davenport in an effort discuss the critical role that the manufacturing sector plays in the American economy.

Between Bachmann’s announcement, President Obama’s tour, and Palin’s attendance at the movie premier, Iowa will once again be the epicenter of the political world next week.  Get ready Iowans, its going to be a crazy week.
