McCain and Palin will finally celebrate at the Biltmore

PHOENIX, Ariz. – The McCain camp expects Sarah Palin to help them raise more than $100,000 tonight at a fundraiser at the Arizona Biltmore hotel in Phoenix.

The Biltmore, of course, is an infamous locale for Palin. It's where McCain refused to allow her to give a concession speech before him on election night in 2008. The tables have certainly turned and Palin seemed to wink at the reversal of fortune during her speech at the Tucson rally.

"I was pretty excited when John McCain asked me to join him on the campaign trail this go around here in Arizona," she said. "I couldn't wait to get some of the McCain-Palin team back together again, which would be fun. A lot of things have changed since the last time we were together."

She wasn't kidding.
