Palin out as headliner for GOP dinner

WASHINGTON (AP) — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is out, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is in as keynote speaker at a Republican dinner this spring.
The party's 2008 nominee for vice president, Palin had been slated to address the annual Senate-House Dinner on June 8, which is sponsored by the House and Senate Republican campaign committees. Instead, she will be replaced by Gingrich.
A spokesman for the Senate GOP committee, Brian Walsh, says Palin's team informed the committees that her responsibilities in Alaska prevented her from committing until the end of the legislative session.
