麦凯恩挑选女州长为副总统竞选人 McCain Picks Female Governor for VP

29 August, 2008

来自美国共和党总统候选人麦凯恩竞选团队的消息说,麦凯恩已经选择了阿拉斯加州州长莎拉.佩林作为他的副总统竞选夥伴。

这将是历史上第一次一位女性出现在共和党的竞选搭档里。

佩林现年44岁,第一次出任州长。她在社会和经济议题上均持保守态度。

预计,在共和党全国代表大会下星期举行之前,麦凯恩不久将在俄亥俄州代顿市的一个竞选集会上正式宣布这个消息。

Sources inside the campaign of U.S. Republican presidential candidate John McCain say he has chosen Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate.

This would be the first time a woman has run on the Republican party national ticket.

Palin, a 44-year-old first term governor, is conservative on both social and economic issues.

McCain is expected to make a formal announcement shortly at a rally in (the midwestern city of) Dayton, Ohio, ahead of next week's Republican National Convention.
