'Closer' Palin to rally Georgia GOP voters

Gov. Sarah Palin is going back out on the campaign trail, just a few weeks after returning to work from her two-month run for vice president.

Palin will be in Georgia on Monday to stump for Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss, who is in a tightly contested runoff election with Democrat Jim Martin. Palin is being described by campaign-watchers as the closer, being brought in to electrify the Republican base in a series of rallies the day before the election.

Palin spokesman Bill McAllister said she'll make the Georgia campaign swing on her way to Philadelphia to meet with her old political foe, president-elect Barack Obama.

Obama is meeting with governors from both parties to talk about the ailing economy. It's not confirmed how many governors will attend the event, which the National Governors Association helped to put together, or if Palin will personally speak to Obama, whom she accused during the campaign of "palling around with terrorists."

"I don't know if she has a one-on-one with (Obama)," McAllister said. "It may be, given that they were both involved in the national campaign."
