Brewer, Palin lead Phoenix walk to 'strike out' child abuse

Posted: Updated:

Some familiar faces led a special walk to raise awareness Saturday in the valley.

Governor Jan Brewer and former Governor Sarah Palin led the Strike Out Child Abuse Walk as it wound its way through downtown Phoenix Saturday afternoon.
Before the event kicked off, people swarmed the former governor of Alaska for pictures and autographs.

Palin says she and her family spend a lot of time in Arizona. She pushed her son Trig in a stroller for the walk.
"We get to visit here quite often because our kids take different classes down here. They've chosen Arizona as the place to be and it's not just because of the weather, which is heavenly," said Palin.

As for the political climate, we had to ask about the immigration issue. The gang of eight is expected to present a complex immigration plan next week.

Will the American people support it?     

"If they first will make sure the borders are secure then I think American public will be open to hearing what bureaucratic regulatory solutions are, but first and foremost is securing the border," said Palin.

"We need more boots on the ground, more technology on the ground and certainly we need cooperations between the state of Arizona and state of Sonora," said Brewer.

And the inevitable question about Palin's political future: Are you going to run in 2016?

"Don't know what I'm going to do in 2016, but I'm going to walk today and I'm happy to get to do that," said Palin.

Palin was Senator John McCain's vice presidential running mate in 2008. Since then, there has been a lot of speculation about whether she will run in 2016.
