Palin hires chief of staff for PAC
Looks like Sarah Palin is gearing up for a run at the Presidency in 2012.
JUNEAU, Alaska — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has hired a longtime Republican political strategist as chief of staff of her political action committee, fueling fresh speculation about her possible intent to run for president in 2012.
The hiring of Michael Glassner was confirmed to The Associated Press on Saturday morning by Palin aide Rebecca Mansour and SarahPAC Treasurer Tim Crawford. Palin has only said she's considering a presidential run.
Glassner managed Republican vice presidential operations in 2008, when Palin was Sen. John McCain's running mate. Glassner also served as the longtime senior adviser to former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole, the 1996 Republican presidential candidate.
