As former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin walked in the front door of The Machine Shed restaurant in Urbandale, Iowa, this evening, a reporter asked Palin what she thought about the current field of GOP presidential candidates.
“Happy with the field of candidates. I always think that there’s room for more, though, because spirited debate and more competition will allow an even better discourse and a more rigorous discourse that the public deserves,” Palin said.
Palin was greeted by a chant of “run, Sarah, run” by folks who were crowded in the gift shop area that is the entry for the restaurant. Palin was surrounded by a clutch of media and she made her way into a room where the “Conservatives4Palin” and “Organize4Palin” folks had gathered.
