Palin talks in Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Sarah Palin says the primary elections are over and it's time for Republicans to unite.

The former Alaska governor delivered a fiery speech Friday night to about 1,400 people at the Iowa Republican Party's largest annual fundraiser in Des Moines. She says all Republicans must now focus on the November elections, because "this is our movement, this is our moment."

Endorsements by the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee helped propel several upstart Republican contenders to victory in recent primaries, including a double win Tuesday in Delaware and New Hampshire.

Palin joked about being in the state where precinct caucuses traditionally launch the presidential nominating season. She says if she ties her running shoes, the headlines would read "Palin in Iowa, decides to run."
