Fans of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) won't get a chance to see her speak at this year's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) after all.

Palin pulled out of a speaking gig later this month at the annual conference for conservative activists, U.S. News reported Tuesday.

Palin's speech had been one of the top attractions at this year's CPAC, along with speeches by radio host Rush Limbaugh and other conservative personalities.

Palin withdrew citing state business that would require her attention that weekend, Feb. 26-28.
