Interesting response from Arizona’s senior senator today when asked whether he will ask for a refund from Charlie Crist over Crist’s decision to bail from the GOP primary in Florida:
Some senators who have personal ties to Crist will have a harder time than others in the money game.Arizona’s John McCain, in one of the toughest races of his political life, against tea-party favorite J.D. Hayworth, owes Crist big. As Ticket reported Wednesday, Crist was courted heavily by Rudy Giulianiand made all the right noises about supporting him before endorsing McCain.
Asked Wednesday about whether he will seek a refund, McCain said he “hasn’t switched.”
and from the Washington Times:
Still, the immediate threat to Mr. Crist’s funds comes from Republican lawmakers, whose political action committees had given nearly $90,000.
Some of those waved off questions Thursday about what they’ll do.
“He hasn’t switched,” said Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, who is locked in a primary battle with former Rep. J.D. Hayworth.
