Maine House Minority Leader Josh Tardy
kept his focus on the Republican presidential ticket’s potential
for appeal to sportsmen as Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s husband headed
in for a two-day campaign swing.
As organizers prepared a welcome for Todd Palin at a barbecue at
the Moosehead Trail Trading Post in Palmyra on Saturday, Tardy said
Mainers value their outdoors heritage.
Earlier in New Hampshire, the husband of the GOP vice
presidential nominee declined to comment on a legislative report in
Alaska that suggested Gov. Palin violated state ethics standards.
Presidential nominee John McCain’s New Hampshire spokesman, Jeff
Grappone, said Palin would not be taking questions from the media
during his visit.
