Clarification Needed

CREDIT:

Michael Shear reports for The Washington Post:

Palin first met McCain in March, McAllister said, when she was in Washington and requested a meeting with McCain about oil drilling in Alaska. McAllister said Palin later talked to McCain for five minutes by phone last Sunday, while she was at the Alaska state fair.

“She made no mention of the vice presidency at the time,” McAllister said.

I feel like we could use some clarification on this: Were those the only times McCain and Palin spoke? The way it’s written that’s what it sounds like, they met in March then talked for five minutes last Sunday while she was at the state fair. But is that right?
