Flooding Forces Palin to Cancel White House Dinner

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Flooding in her home state has forced
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to cancel an appearance at the White House
Correspondents Dinner.

Palin told reporters Thursday that she would skip her planned
East Coast trip so she could visit parts of Alaska that have been
struggling with the most serious flooding in decades.

In addition to attending the dinner Saturday - a mix of
Washington elite, White House press corps and Hollywood celebrities
- the former Republican vice presidential candidate was scheduled
to promote Alaska seafood at an appearance in New York.

The governor's husband, Todd Palin, planned to take her place at
both the dinner and New York event.
