Cherilyn Eagar, a long-shot candidate for U.S. Senate in Utah, tries to grab onto them with an announcement that she’ll have a historic meeting with the former governor on the Salt Lake City jag of her book tour. From the press release:
Governor Palin will make one stop in Utah on her book tour, signing copies at the Salt Lake City Costco on December 9th, from noon to 3:00 pm. Cherilyn Eagar, dubbed “Utah’s Sarah Palin” by local media, will be there to support Palin’s book tour and looks forward to meeting the former Alaska chief executive…
“Governor Palin’s election as vice president would have added a new and powerful voice for conservative women, for conservatism in general and for the traditional family values that most Utahns cherish,” [said Eagar.] “We are so pleased she is coming here to Utah.”
Eagar is challenging Sen. Bob Bennett (R-Utah), who may really be vulnerable thanks to the convention re-nomination process in the state.
