Elisabeth Hasselbeck To Stump With Palin Today

From CBS News' Scott Conroy:

(TAMPA) Usually it's country music singers who introduce Sarah Palin on the campaign trail, but here in Florida on Sunday, a different kind of entertainer is set to stump with the Alaska governor.

"The View" co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck will introduce Palin at rallies in Tampa and Kissimmee, along the I-4 Corridor, which is considered the most important swing region in this critical battleground state. Hasselbeck is a frequent defender of Palin on the ABC talk show, and her presence is sure to bring additional excitement to the large crowd that has already gathered here in Tampa.

Later on Sunday, Palin will head to Asheville, a city in the Appalachian region of North Carolina—a state the Republicans had hoped to lock up long ago but where polls remain tight.
