Thousands on hand as Palin touts Bachmann


MINNEAPOLIS -- Conservatives from around the Midwest gathered in downtown Minneapolis Wednesday to catch a glimpse of Sarah Palin and raise funds for the re-election of U.S. Rep. Michele Ba-chmann, R-Minn.

And judging by the crowd reaction they were happy with what they saw.

Palin was the main event. She and Bachmann entered the stage together to loud cheers and Martina McBride's hit "This One's for the Girls."
