For the past week, Donald Trump has been teasing his supporters with a surprise announcement scheduled for a rally today in Ames, but some Internet sleuths have already predicted who will join the billionaire businessman on the campaign trail.
A flight tracker noticed that a private jet flew from Anchorage to Des Moines last night and the same plane is scheduled to travel to Tulsa on Wednesday, where Trump will hold another campaign event.
Conservative Iowa radio host Steve Deace tweeted about the high-profile endorsement, retracting his prediction that Trump would be endorsed by Jerry Falwell, Jr., the president of Liberty University. Falwell stated that he wouldn’t endorse a candidate in the presidential race.
Pretty much everybody I know now believes Trump's special guest in Iowa tomorrow night is now going to be Sarah Palin.

Other news outlets are also predicting a Palin endorsement, a move which some say could hurt Senator Ted Cruz, but may also backfire on Trump.
In 2012, Palin endorsed Cruz for the U.S. Senate, helping him come from behind to win in Texas.
Palin tweeted a link to one of her daughter’s blog posts, in which Bristol Palin blogged that she hoped her mom would endorse Trump.
