John McCain on Fox News Sunday, October 19th. Sen. Collins has issued a statement against robocalls, here is the report from the Guardian.
“These kind of tactics have no place in Maine politics,” said a spokesman for the Maine Republican senator Susan Collins. “Senator Collins urges the McCain campaign to stop these calls immediately.” Collins is engaged in a tough re-election battle in the state.
Critics of the McCain campaign’s use of robocalls noted McCain’s professed opposition to the tactic was underpinned by the belief his defeat in the 2000 Republican presidential primary campaign was due in part to the use of such tactics by his rival, George Bush.
