This morning, Sarah Palin cancelled a planned Donald Trump rally in The Villages, Fla. just minutes before it was about to start. The reason for the abrupt cancellation, NBC reports, is that Palin’s husband, Todd, is in intensive care in Alaska after a “very serious” snowmobile accident last night.

Palin’s son, Track, who was arrested on domestic violence charges in January, is also due in court for a pretrial conference this morning. A statement announcing the cancellation of today’s event made it seem as if Sarah Palin will be off the campaign trail for the near future.
