BANGOR, Maine — The Maine Republican Party says vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is coming to Bangor on Thursday for a campaign rally.

Palin is scheduled for a 9 a.m. rally at the Bangor International Airport maintenance hangar. Maine Republican Chairman Mark Ellis is encouraging supporters to arrive early because a big crowd’s expected.

The Alaska governor’s visit comes just days after her husband, Todd, made a series of campaign appearances in Maine’s 2nd District. On Sunday, Todd Palin stopped at Dysart’s Restaurant and truck stop in Hermon and at Harry’s Motor Sports in Presque Isle.

A day earlier, he made an appearance at Moosehead Trading Post in Palmyra.
