ST. PAUL — Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin is set to make her first appearance on the national political stage tonight to accept the Republican nomination as vice president amid swirling controversy over her family and experience.
Palin, only the second woman to ever run for national office on a major party ticket, will appear at the Xcel Energy Center here amid turmoil both within the Republican National Convention and her personal life given the news stories about a pregnant teenage daughter, an ethics investigation by the state legislature and McCain’s vetting of her.
