Sarah Palin canceled a scheduled Florida campaign stop for Donald Trump following her husband Todd’s involvement in a snowmobile accident on Sunday, March 13.
According to NBC News, Todd, 51, was injured in a “very serious” crash late last night and is currently hospitalized in intensive care. A source revealed to the outlet that former Alaska governor Sarah will be traveling back to her home state today to be with the commercial fisherman, who she married in 1988 and has five children with.
In a statement, Trump's campaign said: "Todd Palin was in a bad snow machine accident last night and is currently hospitalized. Governor Palin is returning to Alaska to be with her husband and looks forward to being back on the campaign trail soon. Mr. Trump's thoughts and prayers are with the Palin family at this time."
The 2008 vice presidential nominee, 52, was set to make an appearance in The Villages, Florida, on behalf of the GOP frontrunner, 69. Minutes before the event was about to start, the Trump campaign advised supporters that it had been canceled.
"The event scheduled for Governor Sarah Palin to take place today in The Villages, Florida at 12:00 PM, has been cancelled," the statement read. "Governor Palin wishes her best to Mr. Trump in the upcoming primaries.”
As Us Weekly previously reported, Palin publicly endorsed the ex–Celebrity Apprentice host for president back in January. “I’m proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for president,” she said in the statement to the New York Times.
“I am greatly honored to receive Sarah’s endorsement,” Trump responded in a follow-up statement. “She is a friend, and a high-quality person whom I have great respect for. I am proud to have her support.”
