ST. PAUL, MINN. (AP) - Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin took an early morning tour of the stage at the GOP convention in St. Paul, Minnesota, and stood at the lectern where she’ll deliver her first major speech as John McCain’s running mate.

Palin walked onto the spare stage at the Xcel Center about 7:20 a.m. EDT for a brief run-through. She spent about 10 minutes looking onto the nearly empty arena and asking questions about where she would stand and where she would look during her speech Wednesday night.

Joining Palin on the stage were top officials of the McCain campaign, including campaign manager Rick Davis and senior adviser Nicolle Wallace.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was set to deliver the event’s keynote address.
