As we wake up this morning the signs are pointing to McCain picking Palin. Pawlenty seems to have been a deft decoy.
First off there are reports of a sole plane leaving from Alaska to Dayton OH.
I’m getting word from Republican operatives in OK and FL that Gov. Sarah Heath Palin’s charter plane from Alaska has just landed in Dayton, Ohio. That almost certainly would indicate she is John McCain’s choice for V-P. If that is the case, much more about Sarah tomorrow. Sarah Palin is the mother of five, including an infant son, Trig, who was born with Down Syndrome. Her oldest son, Track, is an infantryman headed soon to Iraq or Afghanistan. This story comes from a woman I’d trust with my life.
Jonathan Martin is reporting that Pawlenty is not going to Dayton.
Gov. Tim Pawlenty said this morning that he will he not be in Dayton, Ohio, today and strongly suggested that he won’t be John McCain’s running mate.
“I’m going to be at the [Minnesota] state fair,” Pawlenty said on WCCO just minutes ago.
Finally FoxNews just reported that Romney is not going to Dayton. That he’s in Belmont this morning.
