Murkowski open to Palin appearance

Posted: Wednesday, February 10, 2010

JUNEAU - U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski doesn't expect Sarah Palin to stump for her this year, but a campaign official says the Republican would be open to that.

Mary K. Hughes is chief administrative officer for the Murkowski campaign. She said it's still early in the process; neither the list of candidates nor the campaign schedule has been set. But Hughes said she believes that if a joint appearance could be scheduled, both women would want to do it.

Last April, Palin announced plans to raise money for a Murkowski re-election bid; her SarahPAC also has contributed. Hughes said Murkowski is "very, very pleased" to have Palin's support.
