Hundreds gathered at the Barnes & Noble in Grand Rapids, Mich., in the wee hours of the morning, facing temperatures that dipped into the 30's. But the crowd didn't mind a sleepless night in the cold, as long as they got the chance to meet Sarah Palin, who will be signing copies of her book, "Going Rouge" later today.
Reporter Jessica Wheeler with CBS affiliate WWMT spoke with fans of the former Governor of Alaska. "She's got a lot of support here in Grand Rapids -- as you can see," said Brad Osburn, a Palin supporter.
As some fans praised Palin, others offered their support. "She's a strong woman -- she says what she means and means what she says," said resident Tamara Miller.
"I think the media has crucified her and I'm here to support her," added Emese Kalmoki.
Palin continues her book tour Thursday in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
