What They’re Saying About McCain’s Arkansas Visit

by Selby Bush, RPA Communications Director: Arkansas Democrat-Gazette: “The Senator from Arizona and presumptive GOP presidential nominee will end his week-long tour through mostly impoverished areas with a brief afternoon stop in Little Rock. The tour has been portrayed as McCain’s effort to reach out to Democratic and independent voters. And it has given him a platform to continue trumpeting lower corporate taxes, an attack on government waste and likely cuts in nonmilitary spending.” (Matthew S.L. Cate, “Shaping his GOP identity, McCain to visit state today,” Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 4/25/08)

“John McCain makes last stop in Arkansas on ‘forgotten’ places tour”:

  • The Morning News: McCain’s visit to Arkansas was the final stop on his “Time for Action” tour of regions that McCain has called “forgotten parts of America.” Earlier in the week he visited poverty-stricken areas of Alabama, Ohio, and Kentucky, as well as New Orleans’ Ninth Ward, devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.” (John Lyon, “McCain Visits Arkansas,” The Morning News, 4/25/08)

  • Texarkana Gazette: “John McCain makes last stop in Arkansas on ‘forgotten’ places tour.” (4/25/08)

  • Arkansas Democrat-Gazette: “McCain said his plan for a summertime gas tax holiday would help motorists cope with soaring gas prices, even if for a short while…’I’d love to tell you that money is well spent. But a lot of it’s not,’ McCain said. With his tax break, he said, maybe more Americans could ‘take a vacation. School’s out. Maybe a chance to take a little trip.’” (Matthew S.L. Cate, “McCain on LR visit gains cash, barbecue,” Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 4/26/08)

  • “Rivals No More: McCain, Huckabee do the rounds”:

  • CNN: “Senator John McCain, on the last leg of this week’s your of economically struggling regions, was campaigning alongside former rival Mike Huckabee on Friday.” (Ed Hornick, “Rivals no more: McCain, Huckabee do the rounds,”, 4/25/08)

  • Arkansas Business: “McCain said the former Arkansas governor, always quick to laud the Arizona senator during his own campaign, will travel as a surrogate to rally voters not only in the South.” (, 4/25/08)

  • Texarkana Gazette: “McCain comes to a state where he finished second in the Feb. 5th presidential primary to Huckabee, who served as Arkansas’ governor for 10 ½ years.” (Texarkana Gazette, 4/24/08)

  • “Straight Talk at Arkansas Baptist”:

  • The Morning News: “At historically black Arkansas Baptist College, McCain met for about 40 minutes with students in the Our Kids Program, which fosters partnerships between police, schools, churches, students, and community members to provide positive role models for young black males. McCain said he wanted to end the tour with a ‘great success story.’” (John Lyon, “McCain Visits Arkansas, The Morning News, 4/25/08)

  • Arkansas Times: “McCain called Arkansas Baptist "a great American success story" for bouncing back after almost losing accreditation in 2006.” (John C. Williams, “Straight Talk at Arkansas Baptist,” Arkansas Times, 4/25/08)

  • Local Voices:

  • McGehee District Judge Gibbs Ferguson: “I was going to holler at him and tell him he had two votes.” (Matthew S.L. Cate, “McCain on LR visit gains cash, barbecue,” Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 4/26/08)

  • Brittney Cozart Of Little Rock, Arkansas: “I really like his beliefs, a lot of candidates today do not have the old-world conservative beliefs that I believe in. And he does.” (Matthew S.L. Cate, “McCain on LR visit gains cash, barbecue,” Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 4/26/08)

  • University of Central Arkansas President Lu Hardin: “I saw a side of John McCain I hadn’t seen today, because he was very relaxed and funny.” (John Lyon, “McCain Visits Arkansas,” The Morning News, 4/25/08)

  • Former State Senator Doyle Webb: “He was very engaging and humorous, he shares a patriotism and a vision, and one of the stories he told brought tears to my eyes, and I thought that’s what we need as president.” (John Lyon, “McCain Visits Arkansas,” The Morning News, 4/25/08)
