McCain 'Tied Up' In New Hampshire
MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Capitalizing on his great one-liner from last Sunday's GOP debate in Orlando, Fla., John McCain is now airing a 30-second TV ad here that takes a shot at Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton while touting McCain's record of military service and his experience as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.
"A few days ago, Sen. Clinton tried to spend $1 million on a Woodstock concert museum. Now my friends, I wasn't there. I'm sure it was a cultural and pharmaceutical event. I was tied up at the time," McCain says. "No one can be President of the United States that supports projects such as these."
Incidentally, while here in New Hampshire with my colleague Mike Shear, we stopped by the Red Arrow Diner in Manchester, N.H. to ask residents when they think the state should hold its primary. (Read Mike's report on our visit here, and watch the video below.) Some diner customers expressed political TV ad fatigue.
"There's still plenty of time to get it done before the real election," says Kevin Varg, 50, of Manchester. "Plus, we don't want to see the commercials for two years. They're on our TV everyday."
