Palin supporters announce Iowa ad buy

Some Sarah Palin supporters are still hopeful the former Alaska governor will jump into the GOP's 2012 presidential race and will run an ad in Iowa urging her to run.

Conservatives4Palin will air a television ad in the Sioux City, Iowa market asking the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate to enter the 2012 race, reports The Des Moines Register.

In October, Palin announced that she would not run for the party's nomination. "You don't need an office or a title to make a difference," she said in a YouTube video.
Palin had weighed a presidential bid for months and was the subject of much media speculation.

The Register reports that Conservatives4Palin announced the ad buy Friday in a blogpost on their website.

"Your contributions have made it possible for us to run the Palin reconsider television ad next week in the Sioux City, Iowa market," said the post. "If this ad is able to build some momentum for the Governor, the best way to keep that momentum going may be to commission a national GOP primary poll that includes the Governor as one of the options."

However, with the Hawkeye State's caucuses on Jan 3, the group has little time to convince Palin to reconsider her decision and enter the race.
