Sarah Palin Not Expected to Attend McCain Memorial, Per NBC News


A number of high-profile figures, both Democrats and Republicans, will be in attendance at John McCain‘s memorial. But one report says his former running mate may not be.

NBC News’ Kelly O’Donnell reports this afternoon that former Alaska governor and McCain ’08 VP pick Sarah Palin is “not expected to attend”:

Following McCain’s passing, Palin put out a statement calling him a friend and saying, “Today we lost an American original. Sen. John McCain was a maverick and a fighter, never afraid to stand for his beliefs. John never took the easy path in life – and through sacrifice and suffering he inspired others to serve something greater than self.”

As O’Donnell noted, today, August 29, 2018, marks exactly 10 years since McCain publicly announced Palin as his running mate on the campaign trail.
