Sarah Palin, U.S. Sen. John McCain's 2008 presidential running mate, is coming to his defense.

In a note posted on her Facebook page Monday night, the former Alaska governor calls McCain, "an American hero and a friend."

The message follows a vote Saturday to censure the state's senior senator at the annual meeting of the Arizona Republican Party for what they characterize as a liberal record that has been "disastrous and harmful" to the state and nation.
