Palin says she won't speak at GOP convention

WASHINGTON (AP) - Sarah Palin says she won't speak at the Republican National Convention later this month in Tampa, Fla.

The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee says she's excited to hear from this year's candidates.

Palin says in a statement that she supports Mitt Romney and his running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, and will focus on grassroots efforts to help get the pair elected.

She says everything she said at the 2008 convention still holds true - including her prediction that President Obama would set out to fundamentally transform the country.

Palin didn't say whether she will attend the convention, where Romney will officially accept the Republican nomination for president.

Democrats will hold their convention in early September in Charlotte, N.C.
