(KSL News) A political action committee hopes it can sway Utah voters to vote for Sarah Palin in four years.

The 2012 Draft Sarah Committee based in Colorado says if the Alaska governor runs for president, it's sure Utahns will vote for her, but the Utah Republican party disagrees. It says the only way Utahns will vote for Palin is if other, more popular Republicans, like Mitt Romney or Governor Jon Huntsman, don't run.

Part of Palin's appeal to Republicans nationwide is the fact that she seems ready to run now. Campaigning for Saxby Chambliss during the runoff election in Georgia, Palin stumped not only for him, but for herself, as well.

Palin told the crowd, "Governors do know best, if you will, when you talk about some of these issues that Senator Obama had brought up. In fact, on the campaign trail, remember I tried to convince the majority of voters that governors knew best."

Palin is up for re-election in Alaska in two years. Some have also speculated she could run for the Senate seat currently held by Lisa Murkowski.
