(CNN) - It was 5:30 a.m. last Friday when Heather Bruce, sister of newly minted VP candidate Sarah Palin, got a call telling her to turn on the television.
In an exclusive interview with CNN's Kyra Phillips Wednesday night, Bruce said the call was from another one of her sisters, Molly, who said she couldn't believe what was going on.|
News channels were reporting Sarah Palin, their sister, was likely John McCain's choice for his running mate.
"I stayed on the phone with Molly for several minutes," Bruce told CNN. "I said this can't be happening. When did this happen? Nobody told us anything. I'd heard rumors for months kind of floating in the breeze. But nothing was ever really confirmed to us ever."
