JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Sarah Palin has hired longtime political strategist Michael Glassner as chief of staff of her political action committee.
The hire was confirmed to The Associated Press on Saturday morning by Palin aide Rebecca Mansour and Tim Crawford, treasurer of Palin's PAC.
The move is certain to fuel fresh speculation about Palin's possible intent to run for president in 2012. Palin has only said she's considering a run.
Glassner managed the Republican vice presidential campaign in 2008, when Palin was the nominee. He also acted as a senior adviser to former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole.
