Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will deliver the keynote address at a dinner sponsored by the House and Senate Republican campaign committees.
Palin, the party’s 2008 nominee for vice president, will address the annual Senate-House Dinner June 8 at the Washington Convention Center.
Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, called Palin one of the GOP’s most popular and recognizable faces and a proven leader who “represents a breath of fresh air from the business-as-usual crowd in Washington.”
Go Sarah Go!
Alaska dodges banking collapse
Most major banks and credit unions in Alaska seem to be in good health, despite the worsening news about the economy and the recent bailout of troubled national banks.
One positive sign is that many of the state’s largest banks and credit unions grew in local profits, revenue, loan activity or deposits last year.
Most banks in Alaska avoided risky loans, and because economists aren’t predicting severe job losses in Alaska this year, Anchorage financial executives don’t expect the sort of meltdown and loss of shareholder confidence that has pummeled their colleagues in the Lower 48.
Sarah Palin must be doing a good job of being Governor of Alaska. Better job than Obama is doing in the White House!
