McCain in Florence, Conway

March 10, 2007

Sen. McCain in Florence (03/09/2007 - AP Photo/Mary Ann Chastain)Sen. John McCain was in Florence Friday night and Conway Saturday morning, speaking to South Carolina Republicans about his 2008 presidential aspirations. McCain addressed his conservative record, illegal immigration and government spending.

“The reason why we lost that election, my dear friends, was because we let spending get out of control,” the Republican senator from Arizona told a breakfast crowd in Conway. “We came to power in 1994 to change government and government changed us.”

“It’s got to stop,” he said of the excesses, which also led to corruption among members of Congress. “We’re going to have to clean up our act.”

But the War in Iraq was chief among concerns addressed by the Arizona Senator.

On the Iraq war, McCain said the “titanic” struggle pits supporters of the nation’s values against those of radical fundamentalism.

“We lose this war and come home, they’ll follow us home,” he said.
