Palin unlikely to announce at tea party rally

Scott Conroy reports that Sarah Palin probably won't use her much-hyped, September 3 address in Iowa to launch her bid.

That doesn't surprise me. Palin isn't too predictable and often doesn't do the natural thing, and that would've been a natural place for an announcement.

Meanwhile, RCP also reports that the tea party group hosting her will unleash a radio blitz, promoting her appearance.

Organizers hope that the promotional effort will help them gain a rough idea of the expected crowd, which is almost certain to number in the thousands.

“It’s just so difficult to estimate,” Gruschow said of gauging a head count for the rally. “There seems to be quite a bit of interest.”
