Todd Palin stopped briefly in Allegheny County today to urge supporters of John McCain and Sarah Palin to push hard for the Republican ticket in the closing days of the presidential race.

“It’s been a pretty busy month-and-a-half for the Palin family, but we are up to the challenge,” said Todd Palin, husband of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who affectionately calls him the First Dude.

“Make sure you bring your hunting and fishing buddies to the polls and get them to vote,” he said to about 80 outdoorsman during a rally at the Pitcairin-Monroeville Sportsmen’s Club in North Versailles.

Palin spoke for about 10 minutes and posed for photographs with several people in the crowd. Earlier today, he was at a breakfast event in Greensburg.

He is scheduled to attend a tailgate event this afternoon with state attorney general, Tom Corbett, at the Penn State-Michigan football in State College.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
