Mac is Back on the Right as 2010 Approaches
by

Politico reported last night that Senator McCain is expressing disapproval towards Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman’s attempt to write a bipartisan climate bill. The piece suggests a position switch, pointing out that McCain has previously introduced climate legislation to the Senate multiple times. The article raises the question over whether the recession in Arizona, which has been especially hard-hitting, is playing a role in his current stance towards a cap and trade bill.

What also could be at play is McCain’s 2010 race. Rasmussen polling reported this morning that McCain is only two points ahead of  former conservative Republican Congressman J.D. Hayworth for the primary. The last thing McCain needs right now politically is to be labeled as a “job killer” or even as a “Republican in name only.”
