Governor Sarah Palin’s Speech at the Reagan Dinner in Des Moines, Iowa

Governor Palin had a few remarks to make at the annual Ronald Reagan Dinner in Iowa a few nights ago - and from what I'm told, people were fighting over tickets.

Here are a few reactions, courtesy of the Des Moines Register, via memeorandum:

“I think she issued a call to arms for Republicans, conservatives and disaffected Americans for the next six weeks to get involved and try to change the course of the country through the mid-term elections.”Matt Strawn, chairman of the Republican Party of Iowa

“Hopefully, she’ll continue working against the establishment and not necessarily go with it. I think she motivated a lot of people.”Ryan Rhodes, organizer of the Iowa Tea Party

“It was good to see this kind of a crowd and this kind of enthusiasm. I was in Washington last week. Two words: Anger and fear. It’s all across the country, and people should not fear their country.” — State Rep. Clel Baudler, R-Greenfield, a retired state trooper who visited Washington, D.C., as part of his involvement as a National Rifle Association member

“These people in this room are so excited. They’re going to vote if they have to crawl over broken glass to get there. They’re going to do whatever it takes.” Dave Funk of Runnells, who earlier this year ran unsuccessfully for his party’s nomination to challenge U.S. Rep. Leonard Boswell and is now running for Polk County supervisor

“I think she’s focused on 2010, like all of us are. I appreciate all that she’s doing to build the Republicans up and get us elected and take back the majority.”Kim Reynolds, the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor, who was part of a small group who met Palin backstage before the event began

“She gave the crowd lots of red meat, lots of enthusiasm. She dropped all the right names, and hit all the hot buttons. I think she did a great job of motivating. It was an opportunity for her to tell us who Sarah Palin is, what her positions are. But what is the next step for her? She didn’t commit to anything tonight. She joked about it, but we’ll see. It helps her, if she does run.” — Ann Trimble Ray of Early, vice chairwoman of the Sac County Republican Party and adviser to Iowa Congressman Steve King
