Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was on pace to sign more than 1,000 copies of her new book today during an event to promote the new release at a northwest Iowa Walmart.
Palin, making her second trip to Iowa in the past week to promote “America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag,” arrived shortly before 11 a.m. at the store. Palin, who overnighted in the area, was delayed briefly when a small crowd of fans showed up in the morning at the hotel where she was staying.
The turnout at this stop on Palin’s book tour was a sign of her continued political strength. As Spirit Lake’s Mayor Blain Andera noted, more than 500 people stood in line for Palin’s autograph in a town of roughly 5000 people. Andera said he was leaning toward supporting a Palin presidential bid.
