One well-known Republican will not be at the Republican National Convention. Instead, former GOP Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is starting the week in Arizona to campaign for her allies.
Palin is scheduled Monday to campaign for 5th District Congressional candidate Kirk Adams in Gilbert. The two said they will serve barbecue at Joe's Farm Grill about 3:30 p.m.
Adams is running against former representative and gubernatorial candidate Matt Salmon.
Palin said she selected the Gilbert venue after seeing it featured on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives."
Adams said Palin was very specific about keeping speeches under 10 minutes so she can meet guests.
