When Sen. John McCain tapped Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate, Palin became not only the first woman to run on a Republican presidential ticket, but also the first politician from Alaska to be on a presidential team. Palin raised a total of $1.3 million in campaign donations for her 2006 gubernatorial campaign, $1.2 million of which came from individual donors.
