When Governor Palin first announced that she would attend the Southern Republican Leadership Conference (SRLC), rather than the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), quite a bit of talk ensued. Last month, the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee sent out an Alert announcing our support of her decision. CPAC 2010 began last Thursday, and the conversations about her decision not to attend began again.

Now that CPAC has ended, we turn our attention to the upcoming SRLC. SRLC is considered to be “the real proving ground for gauging A POTUS Run,” as Ron Devito, 2012DSC supporter, points out in his article, “Why Gov Palin Chose SRLC Over CPAC.” He cites Politico and CNN. Both point out why SRLC is an essential place for potential presidential candidates to appear. Devito also highlights many of the issues that factored into Governor Palin’s decision to choose SRLC over CPAC.

Inasmuch as this committee’s goal is to encourage the governor to run for president in 2012, we very much look forward to her attending SRLC in April and learning the results of that particular straw poll. In fact, what would be even better is for many of her supporters to go to New Orleans and participate in the poll.
