Earlier this morning, rumors were bubbling that a planned Donald Trump rally in Florida today, starring Sarah Palin, would be cancelled as the candidate focuses his attention elsewhere – a planned rally with Trump today was also cancelled and Trump will instead appear in Ohio.
But it turns out the reason for Palin’s abrupt cancellation has nothing to do with Donald Trump. Last night, according to Palin’s camp, Sarah’s husband Todd was in a serious snowmobile accident and is currently in critical condition. Palin will attend one or two events and return to Alaska to be with her family.
Sarah Palin cancelled a campaign stop for Donald Trump in Florida Monday after her husband Todd was injured in a snow machine crash.
A source told NBC News that Todd Palin was in “a very serious” crash Sunday night and is currently hospitalized in intensive care.
In a statement, Trump’s campaign said: “Todd Palin was in a bad snow machine accident last night and is currently hospitalized. Governor Palin is returning to Alaska to be with her husband and looks forward to being back on the campaign trail soon. Mr. Trump’s thoughts and prayers are with the Palin family at this time.”
The former Alaska governor will stop by a Trump town hall in Tampa but has cancelled her other planned appearances with the GOP frontrunner, whom she endorsed earlier this year. She has been in contact with medical personnel and will be traveling back to Alaska today, the source said.
We wish Todd Palin and the Palin family all the best. Our prayers are with them.
