DIXON (WIFR) -- There was a major surprise at this year's Ronald Reagan Trails Days event in Dixon. Sarah Palin, the former 2008 nominee for vice-president made an unexpected stop at the celebration.
Pictures were given to 23 News of Palin making the bus stop. Some staff members and volunteers say they were shocked to see Palin's "One Nation" tour bus arrive. Only the executive director knew about her visit ahead of time. The museum says they were forced to keep the stop top secret to prevent media from coming by. Palin signed autographs and took dozens of pictures with local guests.
Palin's stop adds to speculation about her possible presidential bid. She says she'll decide by the end of summer whether she'll get into the crowded race. Meantime, President Obama's bus tour begins Monday. He's expected to pass through Illinois.
