Below is Connecticut Republican Party Chairman Chris Healy’s comment on John McCain’s choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as Vice Presidential choice

“Sen. John McCain has made a superb choice in Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska as his Vice Presidential running mate, ensuring America will have a strong reform team that puts country before politics.

Gov. Palin has both a strong set of principles and a strong record of cutting taxes, eliminating wasteful spending and instituting ethics reform.

Gov. Palin has managed a state rich in resources and promise and she understands the need for America to be energy independent and strong against terrorism – the two defining issues of our time.

Sen. McCain has chosen wisely and both form a winning team for Connecticut and America.”
