Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will be in Reno, Nev., next week to help tea party backers kick off a cross-country bus tour.
The Washoe County Republican Party confirmed Wednesday that the GOP's 2008 vice presidential candidate will speak at a rally Monday morning in front of the county party headquarters.
The rally is sponsored by the Tea Party Express, a national political committee based in California. The tour heads to Elko, Nev., later Monday, then to Ely, Nev., and Las Vegas on Tuesday.
The 15-day trip ends in New Hampshire on Nov. 1.
