Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin told supporters Friday that Democrat partisans had pressured organizers of an anti-Iran rally in New York next week to withdraw an invitation for her to appear.
"This should be an issue that unites all Americans. Iran should not be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons, period," Palin said. "Unfortunately, some Democrat partisans put politics first and now no elected official can appear. This should not be a matter of partisan politics."
