Palin's statement to Alaskans

August 30, 2008 

Gov. Sarah Palin on Friday issued the following statement after she was selected by Republican presidential candidate John McCain to be his running mate:

"It is the honor of my life to represent you as your governor, and over the next two months I will continue to do so. As the mother of five, I know how to multitask, and I will continue to promote the path of reform that we set out on together in the state of Alaska.

"It is a great privilege to be John McCain's running mate and to be considered by the American people for the vice presidency. This honor is a testament to the reforms and progress we have made together in Alaska. Now is the time to take that spirit of reform to Washington."
