Gov. Sharah Palin visit postponed to Oct. 5

A planned fundraising visit on Sept. 25 to Woodside by Republican vice-presidential candidate and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has been cancelled. Instead, she is scheduled to come to the Bay Area for a fundraising brunch on Sunday, Oct. 5, at a location that has not yet been made public, said California Republican party spokesman Kevin Roberts.

Gov. Palin's original schedule had her coming to the Woodside estate of Tom Siebel, but expected attendance "had just swelled," requiring relocation to a convention center in San Jose, Mr. Roberts said. Then, the date was changed and the location has not been made public yet.

A listing for the event at a hotel in Burlingame at is out of date, Mr. Roberts said.

Why the postponement? "As with any campaign, schedules are fluid," Mr. Roberts said.
