Gramm Makes Exit from McCain Team Official
Sen. John McCain publicly distanced himself from former Sen. Phil Gramm, who had been serving as an economic adviser to the campaign, after the Texas Senator described the nation's economic situation as a "mental recession" last week. Today, Gramm made his departure official.
In a statement issued by the McCain campaign Friday afternoon, Gramm said: "It is clear to me that Democrats want to attack me rather than debate Senator McCain on important economic issues facing the country. That kind of distraction hurts not only Senator McCain's ability to present concrete programs to deal with the country's problems, it hurts the country. To end this distraction and get on with the real debate, I hereby step down as Co-Chair of the McCain Campaign and join the growing number of rank-and-file McCain supporters."
