DES MOINES - Former Gov. Sarah Palin won't headline a social conservative group's annual meeting next month in Des Moines, but the organization says she expressed interest in speaking before the group later.
The Iowa Family Policy Council asked Palin to speak at its Nov. 21 event and expressed optimism that she'd attend.
But in a statement released Friday, council spokesman Bryan English said the group knew it was a longshot because Palin would be in the midst of a book tour. Palin is releasing "Going Rogue."
