Palin says she will support special-needs kids

CORAOPOLIS, Pa. (AP) -- Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin says families with specials-needs children will have a friend in the White House if the Republican ticket is elected.

Palin says she and presidential candidate John McCain will increase federal educational funding for families with children with special needs and help families get the most up-to-date treatment information.

Palin's son Trig was born with Down syndrome about six months ago. She says she's long been an advocate for supporting special-needs families.

Palin outlined a plan for government support Friday during an appearance with special-needs families in suburban Pittsburgh.
