St. Paul, MN - FRCAction, the legislative advocacy arm of Family Research Council, applauds Senator John McCain's choice of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate.
FRCAction Senior Vice President Connie Mackey had this to say:
"The choice of Governor Sarah Palin as the presumptive GOP vice presidential nominee comes on the heels of a week which saw the crafting of the most conservative, pro-life, and pro-family platform in Republican party history.
The platform was articulated with the dedicated efforts of many conservative women, standing on the shoulders of long-time conservative leaders such as Phyllis Schlafy. The GOP platform is a solidly pro-woman document. I salute the efforts of delegates such as Mary Summa from North Carolina, Sandy McDade from Louisiana, and Bunny Chambers from Oklahoma who stood up for women everywhere in creating this platform.
Governor Sarah Palin is a testament to the hardworking women across the nation, who sacrifice for their families and their country on a daily basis. I am elated with Senator McCain's choice and applaud his continued commitment to creating a pro-woman, pro-life, pro-family administration."
