Sarah Palin: Romney Will Face Challenges

Andrew Burton/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- Sarah Palin is adamant that her road trip to visit important American historical sites is not a campaign tour. But she is on her way to the early primary state of New Hampshire in a bus emblazoned with her name and during a stop at Bunker Hill in Boston Thursday, she took a political shot at Mitt Romney.

Palin said Romney, who would be a potential rival if she jumped into the race and announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination Thursday in New Hampshire, will face a "challenge" in getting Tea Party support.

She also said that she didn't intend to step on his toes by going to New Hampshire Thursday, saying his presence there "never was a consideration at all."

"In fact, if he would be offended by me stepping foot in a state he was in, I wouldn't do it." But she doesn't believe that's the case at all.

Palin's bus tour stopped in Boston along the famous Freedom Trail on Thursday. At Bunker Hill, Palin took the official tour from a park ranger and signed autographs.

Palin's exact schedule in New Hampshire remains a mystery. There are reports that she will attend a clambake in Seabrook on Thursday night.
