The twittersphere was ablaze earlier this morning when Sarah Palin announced she would not be appearing in support of Donald Trump at one of his events in Florida today. We now know why, and hope you’ll be sending your prayers to the Palin family.
Palin’s husband Todd was seriously injured in a snowmobile crash on Sunday and is now in intensive care. The crash was described as “very serious.”
Todd is an avid snowmobile racer, winning the Tesoro Iron Dog (the world’s longest snowmobile race) four times.
Palin is returning to Alaska to care for her husband.
