These surprising revelations about Alaska Governor Sarah Palin have created a lot of buzz with the voting public in general, and the delegates attending the National Republican Party Convention.

Harris County Republican Party Chairman Jared Woodfill says Texas delegates are not at all distracted by the personal issues, and that what really matters is Palin’s political experience.

Speaking from the convention today, Woodfill told KPRC Local 2, “I think this has made people more excited about Governor Palin and her candidacy as vice president. They see a person with character, they see a person that is faced with the same challenges that many families are faced with and embracing their daughter.”

Woodfill still calls Senator John McCain’s vice presidential running mate a fantastic pick. “She’s someone that people don’t really know that well,” says Woodfill, “but the more they get to know about her, the more they like her and it’s fired up our base  more than anything I’ve seen in the past few months.”
