ABC News' John Berman reports: Sarah Palin will apparently not appear at one of the first Republican Presidential debates, skipping-out on Politico, in favor of veterans.
On May 2nd, the former Alaska Governor will be the keynote speaker at a fundraising event for soldiers and veterans in Denver. In a press release, the SKP foundation announced that Palin will address their annual, “Patriots & Warriors Gala and Fundraiser on Monday, May 2, 2011.”
The gala is designed to “honor service members and those who have given of themselves in service and/or sacrifice to our country,” and will also raise money for “at risk youth.”
The date of the event is interesting, because it is the same night as a Republican presidential debate hosted by Politico and NBC News at the Reagan Library. Palin, who has said she currently considering whether to run, will obviously not be there.
