Palin Campaigns in Virginia

October 27, 2008

(AP) - Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin says Democrats would raise taxes and "punish hard work."

The Alaska governor spoke Monday as she began a three-city swing through conservative Virginia, where Democrat Barack Obama is challenging the state's 40-year preference for Republican presidents.

Palin told a cheering crowd in Leesburg, outside Washington, that Obama would raise taxes while she and Republican hopeful John McCain would cut them and freeze government spending. She also warned that voting for Democrats in the Nov. 4 election could give the party too much power.

As Palin put it: "If big government spenders control the House and the Senate and heaven forbid the White House, they will have a monopoly in Washington."
