From Sean Cockerham in Juneau –
Gov. Sarah Palin met with some of the legislative leaders this morning and a few reporters staked it out for the chance to get a few minutes with Palin. She hasn’t spoken to the press since the legislative session started a week ago.
Palin took questions for eight minutes outside of the governor’s mansion, and each reporter had a chance to ask a couple as the snow came down. She talked about her new PAC and didn’t dispute that she’s interested in a book deal, although she said reports that she could be getting $11 million for a book are wrong.
Does the PAC mean she’s running for president? (Some other governors with national aspirations have such a PAC but she’s the first among Alaska governors to get one.)
“No, not at all, not at all, no. It’s helpful to have a PAC so that when I’m invited to things even like to speak at the Lincoln Day dinner in Fairbanks, to have a PAC pay for that instead of have the state pay for that because that could be considered quasi-political.
