John McCain, Mitt’s campaign surrogate, appeared on Fox News today as another source calling for the Bain attacks on Romney to cease. At the end of the interview though, he was asked by Megyn Kelly about Mike Huckabee’s earlier claim that McCain convinced Fred Thompson to stay in the race in order to split the vote in South Carolina.
“I respect him, but that’s totally false,“ McCain said. "It’s totally patently false, and for him to say something like that, maybe it makes him feel better. All I can say to Governor Huckabee is good luck on your programming on FOX, but you’re not telling the truth.”
