Sarah Palin Makes Appearance at GOP Fundraiser in Chicago

More than 4,000 fans of Sarah Palin descended on Rosemont, Illinois, yesterday. The former Alaska governor, Republican vice presidential nominee and current Tea Party poster girl appeared at two separate events. First she headlined a big fundraiser for the Illinois Republican Party. Then she spoke at an event sponsored by a conservative talk radio station. WBEZ's Sam Hudzik talks more about Palin's visit – and what it means for Illinois Republicans - especially those running for election.

Music Button: Lars Horntveth with the song "Tics" (Four Tet remix) from the release, Four Tet Remixes (Domino)
