Sarah Palin met with pro-Israel lobbyists to express her support for U.S.-Israel ties.- Palin meets with AIPAC leaders.
Palin, the Alaska governor who was tapped last week by Sen. John McCain to be his vice-presidential running mate, met for 45 minutes Tuesday in the Minneapolis area with several leaders of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Also in attendance at the AIPAC meeting was U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.), the McCain campaign’s most prominent Jewish backer.
McCain campaign spokesman Michael Goldfarb said Palin spoke about “the relationship between Israel and American national security, and the threats to Israel from Iran and others.”
“She was extremely well received,” Goldfarb said, noting that Palin was interrupted by applause twice.
AIPAC also praised the meeting.
