URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) — Sarah Palin is making a surprise appearance at a suburban Des Moines restaurant.
And she was greeted there Friday night with chants of "Run, Sarah, run!"
Hundreds of fans jammed into the Iowa Machine Shed, with the backroom of the farm-themed restaurant overflowing, as people from as far away as Texas, Florida and California strained for a glimpse of the former Alaska governor.
Accompanied by her husband, Todd, she worked the room, shaking hands, posing for pictures and hugging babies.
Palin, the GOP's 2008 vice presidential nominee, is considering a presidential run. She speaks to a tea party rally on Saturday in Iowa but is not expected to disclose a decision about her political future for another few weeks.
