Former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin canceled an appearance on behalf of Donald Trump Monday after her husband Todd was in a serious snowmobile crash, according to reports.
Todd Palin, 51, is currently hospitalized in intensive care, a Palin aide told reporters.
Sarah Palin was expected to appear in The Villages, Fla. Monday, but is now returning to Alaska, Trump’s campaign said in a statement.
“Governor Palin is returning to Alaska to be with her husband and looks forward to being back on the campaign trail soon,” the campaign said.
Trump is making a stop in Tampa Monday before flying to Youngstown, Ohio, ahead of Tuesday’s primaries in Florida, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri and North Carolina.
Todd Palin served as First Gentleman of Alaska from 2006 to 2009, while his wife was the state’s governor.
The Palins have been married since 1988 and have five children.
ABC News reported:
Donald Trump’s presidential campaign says that Todd Palin, husband of Sarah Palin, has been “in a bad snow machine accident” Sunday night and is hospitalized.
The campaign said in a statement that the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate is returning home to be with her husband. She had been scheduled to appear on Trump’s behalf at an event in Florida ahead of the state’s primary on Tuesday. The statement says Sarah Palin “looks forward to being back on the campaign trail soon.”
The statement said Trump, the GOP front runner, sends his thoughts and prayers to Palin and her family.
