LITTLE ROCK - Want to record Sarah Palin's speech when the former Republican vice presidential nominee comes to Arkansas next week? Thanks, but no thanks, organizers say.
The Arkansas Republican Party said Thursday that no video or audio recordings will be allowed at Verizon Arena when the former Alaska governor headlines a North Little Rock fundraiser next week.
The rule applies to both audience members and the media, the party's executive director said.
Arkansas Republican Party Executive Director Chase Dugger said the rule was requested by the Washington Speakers Bureau, which arranged the event. The party is paying an undisclosed fee for Palin to speak.
Palin, who is a paid contributor to Fox News, has been traveling the country and promoting her recently published memoir. She recently told the channel it would be "absurd" for her not to consider running for president in 2012.
