Palin campaigns for Trump in swing states

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was stumping for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in swing states in the final days before the election.

Palin endorsed Trump and spoke at a few events early in the primary season but hasn't been seen on the campaign trail much since then. Trump caused a fair bit of chuckling when he suggested that Palin decided to skip the Republican National Convention in Cleveland because Alaska was just too far away.

Palin hopped on the road this weekend, announcing on Facebook that she was headed to Michigan, North Carolina and New York with daughters Willow and Piper. "Going Rogue, again! Finally," she wrote, noting that she started her "Going Rogue" book tour in Michigan in 2009.

Palin is expected to join Trump in New York City on election night.

The new "mission for supporters is 'divide and conquer,' so with the Tarheel State covered tomorrow by the 'Women For Trump' bus tour (and the man himself!) we head back to beautiful Ohio for a full day of energizing events," Palin wrote.

Palin posted a packed schedule that included stops in Cincinnati, Kettering, Zanesville and Dublin, Ohio, for Monday. 

She visited Alpena, Midland and Detroit, Michigan, over the weekend.
