Gov. Linda Lingle is heading to the mainland this week and next for a trip that includes a six-state campaign swing for the Republican presidential ticket of John McCain and Sarah Palin.
The tour is scheduled to include Michigan, Ohio, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts and Missouri.
Lingle’s last stop will be St. Louis on Oct. 2, for the vice presidential debate at Washington University, where she will serve as one of the campaign’s top surrogates to discuss Palin’s performance against her Democratic rival, Sen. Joe Biden.
Here, Lingle discusses how her campaign tour could change depending on how quickly the polls do.
