LEESBURG, Va. (AP) -- Vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is meeting with the Israeli ambassador to the U.S. as part of a three-city tour in Virginia.
Monday's meeting preceded a rally Palin is holding in Leesburg. Palin greeted ambassador Sallai Meridor and apologized for not being able to meet with him sooner. She told the ambassador: "We look forward to ... working with your Jewish agency."
Palin's visit to Virginia is designed to upend Democrat Barack Obama's advantage in pre-election polls in a state that hasn't backed a Democratic White House hopeful since 1964. Besides visiting Leesburg, Palin will travel to Fredericksburg and Salem.
