Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's political action committee, SarahPAC, launched a new website on Monday that promotes greater interaction with supporters.
The new site includes social-networking links for supporters to connect with the potential GOP presidential candidate and an area to enter personal information such as email addresses and ZIP codes, which could allow the committee to build a list of backers.
SarahPAC Treasurer Tim Crawford announced the move in an email to supporters, saying the redesign of the previously simplistic site had been months in the making.
"Today, SarahPAC is excited to announce the launch of our new website! It's been many months in the making and will allow SarahPAC's supporters
and friends to read Sarah's latest posts, connect, and see some of the
conservative candidates that SarahPAC supports — Palin's Picks!" he wrote.
Palin's online makeover comes amid heightening speculation as to whether she will run for president in 2012.
The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee appeared at a Tea Party rally in Madison, Wis., this weekend after spending several weeks off of the trail, leading some observers to believe she is leaning toward not running.
But during her speech, video of which is posted on Palin's new site, she took digs at President Obama and GOP leaders alike for striking a 2011 budget deal she said failed to make serious spending cuts.
"We didn't elect you just to rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic," she said. "We didn't elect you just to stand back and watch Obama redistribute those deck chairs."
Palin's new site contains links to her widely read Facebook notes, a list of endorsed political candidates, a form to request a public appearance and an online donation form.
