Sarah Palin will join Donald Trump in Denver on July 1 to kick off the Western Conservative Summit, organizers said Wednesday morning.
The 2008 vice presidential pick and former Alaska governor is a favorite of the conservative base. She announced her endorsement for Trump in January. The presumptive GOP presidential nominee announced last week he would attend the summit, the largest annual gathering of conservatives outside Washington, D.C.
Though the summit, which began in 2010, normally starts on Friday night each year, Trump and Palin will speak Friday morning at the Colorado Convention Center.
"We've added an additional session Friday morning with Mr. Trump, so we reached out to some other folks who have been part of his effort and have been endorsing him and she accepted," said Jeff Hunt, the executive director of the Centennial Institute think tank at Colorado Christian University in Lakewood, which puts on the weekend-long event. "It's going to be a barn-burner. It's going to be a lot of fun."
The first speech will be at 10:30 a.m. Palin is expected to speak for a half hour and Trump will speak for an hour, though who speaks first has not yet been determined, Hunt said.
A few remaining tickets are available online. Day passes cost $120.
Palin gave a 35-minute speech to the Western Conservative Summit in 2014. A former reality TV star, like Trump, Palin hit on issues not familiar to the Trump campaign: immigration
"It's so nice to get to participate in something CCU is in charge of," Palin said to open her address two years ago. "They do such good work. They're like salt and light out there in the education arena."
She joked about Colorado's "snow-capped hills," reminding attendees that she's from Alaska, and then made a marijuana joke.
"Stepped off the plane, ah," she said, sighing and tilting back her head. "Todd reminds me: Don't inhale. We're in Colorado."
YES! This should be a real hoot considering what an ass she made out of herself before there:
