Palin Meets Girls in D.C.

Story in the Gladwin County Record and Clarion:

When best friends Heather Baker and Makayla Kocur hopped a Haines Tour Bus with around 50 people to take a trip to our nation’s capital, they probably weren’t thinking about meeting former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, but that’s exactly what happened.

The pair, who have been friends since Pre-K, traveled to the Restoring Honor Rally in Washington, D.C. where they had volunteered to work backstage at the event. It was there that Sarah Palin stopped to offer her thanks to the girls.

“She thanked us for being there,” said Makayla. “It was amazing. She shook our hands and everything.” “She is so nice, and she’s so real,” she added.

Makayla’s father, Kurt Kocur, who made the trip along with the girls, agreed.

“She seemed to me to be down to earth,” he said. “The fact that she stopped and talked to them was really great.”
