Clarification on McCain, Nonprofit Group
The advertisements did not mention McCain by name, but dealt with the Air Force's February decision to award a $40 billion contract for refueling tankers to Northrop Grumman and its European partner. The Post earlier had reported Citizens Against Government Waste had partnered with Northrop and a consultant to produce an ad defending the contract, which McCain had supported. CAGW and the McCain campaign have said they they did not cooperate on the ads.
