McCain Connecticut Co-Chair: “I Don’t See How McCain Can Win”
Connecticut Congressman Chris Shays, who co-chairs the McCain campaign in his state, says he’s disappointed in the McCain campaign because of its mudslinging.
“He has lost his brand as a maverick; he did not live up to his pledge to fight a clean campaign,” Shays said.
Shays, himself in a tight re-election bid, blames the far-right, which he says has “hijacked” the Republican Party. Shays’ view may not be that different than that of Elizabeth Dole, also in a tight race to keep her North Carolina senate seat. Dole decided to be a no-show at a McCain rally in her state. Not a good sign when you don’t want to be seen alongside your party’s nominee.Click here for reuse options!
