John McCain Makes VP Announcement in Ohio

OHION – John McCain made history on Friday, August 29 by announcing that he had selected Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to be his vice presidential running mate.

John McCain and Governor Palin appeared together on stage early that afternoon to the roaring cheers of 15,000 enthusiastic supporters. Before Governor Palin came on stage, the crowd celebrated John McCain’s 72nd Birthday by loudly singing “Happy Birthday” for him three times.

John McCain gave a passionate introduction for his new running mate, who walked on stage with her husband Todd and four of her children. Since Governor Palin is not a familiar face to most Americans, we wanted to give some background on her record as governor and elsewhere.

Governor Sarah Palin

Governor Sarah Palin is a tough executive who has demonstrated during her time in office that she is ready to be president. She has brought Republicans and Democrats together within her Administration and has seen approval ratings of over 80 percent.

Governor Palin has challenged the influence of the big oil companies while fighting for the development of new energy resources.
Governor Palin leads a state that matters to every one of us — Alaska has significant energy resources and she has been a leader in the fight to make America energy independent.

Taking a step that few politicians have, Governor Palin has used her veto and cut budgetary spending in Alaska. And she put a stop to the bridge to nowhere that would have cost taxpayers $400 million dollars.

In Alaska, she challenged a corrupt system and passed a landmark ethics reform bill.

As the head of Alaska’s National Guard and as the mother of a soldier herself, Governor Palin understands what it takes to lead our nation and she understands the importance of supporting our troops.

McCain-Palin Makes Perfect Sense

John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin will shake up the status quo in Washington. They both have built their political careers by taking on the political establishment and putting their Country before their Party.

The American public will soon see two mavericks shake up Washington by putting America first.
