ABC News' Mary Bruce Reports: For the second time this year, Sarah Palin has scheduled an event on the same day as the first GOP presidential debate. Instead of appearing with other presidential hopefuls in California on May 2nd Palin is now set to speak at a fundraiser in Colorado.
As first reported by the Denver Post, Palin will headline the "Tribute to the Troops with Sarah Palin" at Colorado Christian University on May 2nd.
The speech falls on the same day that candidates will participate in the first debate in the race for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif.
This is not the first time that Palin, who continues to flirt with the idea of running in 2012, has scheduled a public engagement in Colorado on the day of this debate.
Last month the former Alaska Governor signed on to be the keynote speaker at a fundraising event for soldiers and veterans in Denver on May 2nd. The day after the announcement, however, the event was cancelled due to an “onslaught of negative feedback.”
