The Invisible Primary, 12/16

Tracking the GOP race to 2012

Tim Pawlenty traveled to New Hampshire today to keynote a fundraiser for Republican state Senate candidates; Sarah Palin stiffed a hairdresser on her book tour; a Salt Lake City Costco reportedly removed all tomatoes from stock before Palin's book signing there; Palin hit back at Arnold Schwarzenegger for criticizing her climate skepticism, asking on her Facebook page, "Why is Governor Schwarzenegger pushing for the same sorts of policies in Copenhagen that have helped drive his state into record deficits and unemployment?"; and Mitt Romney is planning his book tour around the March release of "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness."
