State Sen. Kirk Schuring today praised the selection of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as John McCain's vice presidential running mate.
"I think it was a bold choice. Gov. Palin is a proven leader who has strong values and she will bring a new level of energy to the campaign," said Schuring, Republican candidate for the 16th Congressional District seat.
"Moreover, she is a reformer who will work with John McCain to fix Washington and address issues like enhancing our competitiveness in the global economy, reducing energy costs and making health care more affordable."
