Pima County Republicans celebrate McCain's nomination

Posted: Updated:

While the Republican National Convention was in St. Paul, GOP parties were held all across the nation, including Tucson. The Republicans gathered here to cheer on their favorite son, Arizona Senator John McCain as he gave his acceptance speech in Minnesota.

Several people at the Tucson Republican gathering were critical of Barack Obama, and of his selection of Joe Biden as his running mate. But they said they are very happy with Sarah Palin, because they think she is the best Republican candidate for Vice President.
