In response to Senator John McCain’s choice of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, U.S. Senate candidate Dick Zimmer released the following statement commending McCain’s decision:
“I think she is an excellent choice. As an effective reform governor, she brings important executive experience to the ticket. A strong fiscal conservative, she stood up against wasteful pork-barrel politics when she killed Alaska’s infamous ‘Bridge to Nowhere’ that was promoted by Senator Ted Stevens and supported by Senator Frank Lautenberg.
?Senator McCain made a brilliant decision by asking her to join the GOP ticket. I am very excited to be running with both of them in New Jersey.”
