Palin resigning as Alaska governor

WASILLA, Alaska (AP) - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she will
resign from office July 26. Her spokesman wouldn't say why Palin decided to step down, but the announcement stirred speculation that she would focus on a bid for the 2012 Republican nomination for president. Spokesman Dave Murrow says Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell will be
inaugurated at the governor's picnic in Fairbanks at the end of the
month.
