Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will return to Iowa in January for the Iowa Freedom Summit.
According to The Des Moines Register, the inaugural event in Des Moines on January 24 “is being held by Citizens United and Congressman Steve King” and “will serve as a place to discuss conservative ideas, as people get ready for the upcoming Iowa Caucuses next year.” Guests reportedly also include Newt Gingrich and other potential 2016 candidates, such as Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), Ben Carson, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. Huckabee and Santorum won the Iowa caucuses in 2008 and 2012, respectively.
Palin’s trips to Iowa, where her favorability ratings are through the roof across the aisle, have always been significant. In a landmark speech in Indianola, Iowa, in 2011, she railed against crony capitalism and the bipartisan permanent political class, ensuring those themes would be in the political conversation. Her presence at the Iowa State Fair during the 2012 election cycle ginned up the most enthusiasm. And she recently endorsed Senator-elect Joni Ernst in the GOP Senate primary.
