Gary Bauer marvels at Sarah Palin’s star power:
Gary Bauer, chairman of American Values, thinks it is evident that Palin still has a lot of star power.
“Sarah Palin is the only figure in the Republican Party that can go into any mid-size city in America and put 10,000 people in an arena — so she’s a force to be reckoned with,” he notes.
While Julie Ingersoll actually attends fundariser headlined by Palin last night in Jacksonville, Florida:
This was a fundraiser for Heroic Media, a faith-based non-profit that publicizes alternatives to abortion. Originally planned for an auditorium that holds over 2000 people, it was moved to a smaller venue (600 seats) and ticket sales remained low even after ticket prices were cut in half. There were still probably 80 empty seats, and it was clear that some number of attendees had free tickets.
