A group of Connecticut Republicans have gotten out in front for the 2012 presidential election, officially filing the first official documents with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to draft Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) into the race.

The "2012 Draft Sarah Palin Committee" is the first to have filed papers with the FEC, one of the group's organizers told the Associated Press. The group's first meeting will be held Tuesday in Connecticut.

The group is said to have raised $3,000 in funds already.
