Sarah Palin PAC Reserves Space Near RNC Site

It looks like Sarah Palin is planning to attend the Republican National Convention in Tampa this August - or is at least planning to be in the general vicinity.

Financial disclosures from Palin's political action committee, Sarah PAC, show a $4,500 deposit has been placed at the Channelside Bay Mall in downtown Tampa-walking distance from the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the site of the 2012 Republican National Convention.

The PAC lists the purpose of the expenditure as a "deposit for space." Whether  Palin will have any formal role at the convention remains unknown, but the purchase would suggest that Palin at least plans to peripherally attend the RNC.

The Republican National Committee did not respond to ABC News's requests for comment.
