Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is making her first campaign visit to Florida.

The Alaska governor is scheduled to hold a rally Friday at 3 p.m. at The Villages, a central Florida retirement community.

The community is located about 60 miles northwest of Orlando and has
long been a Republican stronghold.

During the primary season, Republican presidential candidate John McCain and contenders Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney and Fred
Thompson also stumped for votes at The Villages.
And President Bush spoke to a welcoming crowd of about 15,000 there during his 2004 re-election campaign.

Palin is hoping to secure Florida's 27 electoral votes.
