An aide to Sarah Palin confirmed via Twitter on Thursday that the former Alaska governor and possible White House contender will attend a tea party tax-day rally on Saturday in Madison, Wis.--where the scent of protest is still fresh after a multi-month tug-of war-between Republican Gov. Scott Walker and the pro-union groups targeted by his budget.

Palin is one of more than a dozen tea party favorites who will be headlining protest rallies over the weekend as Americans prepare for the Monday deadline for filing income-tax returns.

 

Mike Tate, chairman of the Wisconsin Democratic Party, said in a statement that it “makes sense that [Palin] would come to Wisconsin to celebrate Scott Walker’s war against its working families.” Tate also called attention to the eight GOP state senators facing recall in the current phase of battle in Wisconsin, asking if they will “stand with Sarah Palin as she lavishes praise over the Scott Walker union-busting, anti-family agenda.”

Palin has been a remote participant in Wisconsin’s budget saga, declaring early support for Walker and asking her Twitter followers to vote for Republican-backed Justice David Prosser, the unofficial victor in this month's state Supreme Court election, which became a referendum on Walker’s budget bill.

Saturday’s rally will be sponsored in part by Americans for Prosperity.
