McCain on Anti-Mormon Push Polling

The McCain campaign, clearly wanting to distance itself from anti-Romney push polling story, has announced that its leadership team in New Hampshire “intends to file a complaint with the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office seeking a full investigation to determine who was behind the push poll.”

McCain himself had this to say:

“I applaud my Leadership Team for taking action against these cowardly acts. I call on all other candidates and their supporters to repudiate these attacks and join me in pledging not to engage in such despicable tactics throughout the balance of this campaign. I am outraged by the cowardly telephone calls that hide behind my name in an effort to disparage one candidate and advance the candidacy of another. I was a target of these same tactics in South Carolina in 2000 and believe the American people deserve better from those who seek the high office of the presidency.”

UPDATE: Giuliani communications director Katie Levinson passed along this statement: “There is no room for this sort of thing in politics. Our campaign does not support or engage in these types of tactics and it is our hope other campaigns will adhere to the same policy.”
